12 12/8 9.0/14-63

I have noted a couple of discrepencies for a few episodes ratings compared with the Nielsen ratings I found from mrpopculture.com.
My other thread includes a few episodes that are missing here but I am grateful to RJ at tvobscurities.com for finding this information for me!
We know the PF did not do well in the 4th year on Saturdays opposite AITF and now we have an idea of what the ratings were. It seems the first episode of the season scored the highest with a 13.8/26 rating and was #44 that week.

I wonder why the PF scored so low #51 on Dec.8, 1972 ? My guess is it was opposite some popular Christmas specials. If anyone has a TV guide for that week perhaps they could let us know what came on opposite the PF that night.

I am hoping to find the ratings for the second season, which was the most popular. Interestingly, during the third season- the ratings seemed to be higher in 1973 than in 1972!

I hope I presented this info clearly.
The rating is the % of all TV equiped households tuned to the show while the share is the % of all TV sets actually in use at the time.

I was going to put together a new list of Nielsen ratings for The Partridge Family but I see this is not a popular topic. I guess statistics are boring to many people but I am always interested in how many people watched The Partridge Family.

Just because people don't respond, doesn't mean that they aren't interested in reading. What are we supposed to say? I have nothing to add to your statistics. I read, but there's nothing I can contribute. Statistics are statistics. Very Happy

I just don't want to take up space with the statistics if it seems no one is interested. Its true- there may not be much to say about certain statistics, I understand what you are saying Scott.
Thank you for mentioning it-just because people don't respond does not mean they are not interested.
I plan to put together a more organized list using the info I have found so far and I'll post it here when I can.
I just don't want to take up space with info most find boring! Laughing
If anyone can add any information to this listing it would be very much appreciated! Thanks! Smile

Thanks! We were without power or cable for over a week due to Irene blowing a tree down on our house and pulling down the wires and I have not been feeling well but it is still my goal to organize the PF ratings info I have into a more orderly list, by dates, rather than seasons- I'm glad you enjoyed the info! I hope I can eventually find the ratings for seasons one and two as well as the ones I am still missing for seasons 3 & 4.
I hope when I post the list it will be of interest to others.
It seems that when the 4th season began, opposite AITF the PF had 18-19 million viewers. By December this was down to 13 million. But certain episodes were more popular than others. The second season was the most popular, but there were episodes in the third season that did especially well too. Smile

I have been unable to find the Nielsen ratings for any other episodes of The Partridge Family.

If anyone can find more information I'd love to have it! Smile

Especially ratings for the second season which was the most popular.

Thanks! Smile
