Supplementary notes

Figures for the period 2002 to 2018 come from earlier publications.
Ratings are the percentage of TV homes in the U.S. who tuned in.
In October 2019, Nielsen altered its reporting, and as such, all figures for metered market households for the Golden Globes prior to 2020 are not comparable to current figures.
