No major surprises here, I think, but a visual illustrating how “complete” the year-over-year trends are.
I might include something like this in the daily reports for the given show for a more direct look at how the show was doing a year prior since that’s often a talking point or point of curiosity.
Green/red dashed lines compare shows that occurred in the same week (based on week number) in the respective years. Green lines are where the comparison against the prior year was positive, and red where negative, except in the case of the median age chart where the color-coding was reversed because a younger audience is favorable.
