The Partridge Family ranked #18 in the Nielsen Top 20 during the week ending March 7,1971.

The rating was 21.5.

It would seem this was episode #23 " Not With My Sister You Don't" , it was toward the end of the 1st season. This episode aired March 5, 1971.

About 26 million people watched this episode that night.

The info is from Variety, someone posted the clipping on FB!

If anyone else has more information or access to issues of Variety or The Los Angeles Times during the years The Partridge Family was on and thus has their listings of the Nielsen ratings, which were published weekly, please share that info with us! Thanks!

If I find any more ratings info for the show I will post it here.

Love reading about Nielsen ratings for PF.
Keep 'em coming.
Hope you've saved all the info to a master list.

Thanks Darryl! I'm glad I'm not the only one interested in this information!
The thing is: it is hard to find. The Los Angeles Times and Variety were two sources for the Nielsen ratings when The Partridge Family was on, such info is not available on the web or at least I have not been able to find it.

I am hoping others who may stumble across such info will share it with us.

I wish someone would write an up to date book about the show that would provide the ratings and share as well as rank for each episode.

In 1977 I had written to the Nielsen company for ratings info and Lawrence Frerk was kind enough to provide some information for The Partridge Family as well as David Cassidy Undercover.

These days Nielsen will not provide such information for PERSONAL use for free but rather charges thousands of dollars for it.

Perhaps if someone requested the information for a book it would be provided.

The second season of the show was the most popular, yet surprisingly that is the season I have found the least information on.

I will share any other info I can find, and hope others will too! Smile

Yes, I do have a listing of the ratings I have found thus far.

If I recall, seems I had heard that the episode in first season that featured "I think I love you" was the number one show that week. Episode title was "My son, the feminist"

I Think I love You was #1 in the Billboard top 40 that week.

I found a brochure sent out by Screen Gems to TV stations when the series was about to hit syndication in 1973. It details the ratings, share, total homes, etc. I decided to sell it on eBay in case anybody is interested. Here's the link:

That is a great find Scott! I would love to have it but my job just ended a few weeks ago-money is too tight.

Surprisingly, it sold quite quickly. I found a second copy I may list as well.

That is good someone had the money to buy it.

I wish there was a listing of the Nielsen ratings for the PF for each week it was on, date, rating, share, hh, viewers, rank.

Surprisingly, ratings for the 2nd season, which was the most popular, seem to be the hardest to find.
