Six weeks into the 2017-18 TV season and we've got a pretty clear snapshot of what shows are flush and which are busts. TheWrap has ranked the 16 highest- and 15 lowest-rated (there were ties, chill) television series based on their Nielsen ratings to-date.

To be fair at both ends of this study, we did not include any shows with fewer than four episodes to calculate. That hurt "Young Sheldon" and saved "SWAT" -- so you're even here, CBS.

By the way, we looked at just entertainment series only, so no sports or news programming. That eliminated all NFL games and shows like "60 Minutes."

All ratings in this story come from Nielsen's "most current" data stream, which includes a week's worth of delayed viewing where available.
