In 2016, the year that ABC’s The Bachelor and The Bachelor in Paradise were renewed for a fourth season, we had to admit that, yes, we’d missed out on a few of the most underrated shows of the year.
But thanks to our pals at TV Guide, we’ve been able to finally give you a rundown of the 10 shows that got us through a year filled with drama and drama-packed premieres.
(Yes, even the Bachelor is back!)
The list of shows that have gotten us through our season is as follows: ABC’s Blindspot (June 12, ABC)The Crown (June 17, ABC),The Exorcist (June 24, ABC): Two shows that were a hit, but were ultimately canceled after two seasons.
The Exorcists ended up getting cancelled in the middle of its second season, and The Crown wrapped up its run in a way that was ultimately successful.
It was the best-rated freshman series of the past decade, but only managed a 13.4 rating among adults 18-49 and a 4.6 among adults 25-54.
(In the season premiere, viewers were more likely to tune in to see a male lead.)
Blindspot was a sleeper hit, averaging a 3.2 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds and 6.6 in adults 25.
In terms of total viewers, Blindspot made $9.5 million for the network and its advertisers, and had a 4-percent lift in the demo.
Blindspot also was a big draw on ABCs online platform, which was the only way the show could have gotten the kind of audience it had with viewers watching on-demand, not on the big screen.
BlindSpot was the most-watched show of the season in the 18- to-49 demographic, averaging 8.9 million viewers and 9.7 million viewers for adults 18 to 49.
The show’s biggest success was with viewers over the age of 25.
It averaged a 1.4 in adults 18 and over, making it the No. 1 show of that demographic for the season.
The season premiere was the show’s highest-rated, averaging 4.7.
The final season of Blindspot averaged a 4 in the demos and a 6.4 among adults over the 18.
It also had a solid season premiere rating of 4.5.
Blind Spot was the first series to have two seasons, as it aired in 2017, and the third to have a third season, as the third season of the series aired in 2018.
The series was canceled in favor of the new season of Grey’s Anatomy, which premiered in 2019.
Blind spot has been renewed for another season, but the show will have to wait until 2018 for a new season.
ABC’s Black-ish (June 13, ABC).
Black-ish was a surprise hit among adults under the age 50, averaging 9.9m viewers and a 2.6 adults 18 rating.
(Black-as in black, not black-ish.)
It also was the second-most-wanted series of all time among adults.
Black-as is the second new series to air on ABC in 2018, after The Bachelor.
Black was the highest-ranking original drama series among viewers 18-24, averaging 5.4 adults 18.
The number of viewers tuning in to watch the new show was down significantly from the first season, with the show only averaging 2.1 million viewers.
The ratings were up from the previous season, averaging 1.8 million viewers, but Black-As was the series that made the most money for ABC and was able to reach more viewers through its online platforms.
Black had a strong debut on social media, with over 1.3 million likes and 1.5 millions followers on Instagram.
The new season premiered with a 1-percent jump in viewers, and has already topped the ratings of its predecessor.
ABC has also renewed Black- as the network’s highest rated new series, and it will likely continue to be a hit.
The cast of Black- As has also been a huge draw on social platforms, with nearly 300,000 likes on Instagram and nearly 1.2 million followers on Twitter.
Black’s second season debuted with a 4,000 rating in the adults 18 demo and a 3,000 among the 25-to 55-year old demographic.
It had a 2-percent boost in the ratings among viewers over 25, but still managed a 4 percent lift in adults under 25.
The third season debuted at a 1,700 rating in adults 20-to 44-year olds and a 1 1/2 million in viewers under 45.
ABC will likely keep the show on the schedule until 2019.

The Goldberg’s second year debuted with an impressive 2.9 rating among the 18 to 50-yearold demographic, which is the highest in the network history.
