On the first or second week of January 2001, I charted the X-Files
ratings for season 1 through 7, and later added partial ratings
for season 8. However, I made a serious mistake with the numbers
for seasons 4 through 7: instead of using ratings, I charted the
number of viewers. This significantly distorted the curve. I mixed
apples and oranges, and from Elementary School you know how dangerous
that combination can be.
Thanks to Lothar Bartsch <firstname.lastname@example.org> for pointing out the error on January 18, 2001.
Well, here are the correct numbers. I'm leaving the old charts in for comparison. The old charts with the wrong data are on the left, and the charts with the correct data are on the right. Each chart is about 900x600 pixels, 20-27 KB.
