Notes:
For the 1987-1988 television season there were an estimated 88,600,000 TV households. The rating is the percentage of TV households so for this season each rating point represents 886,000 households.

TV stations had a 2 week window (shown in the Air Dates column) to air each episode. They also had an option to air each episode a second time during that period. For the weeks where 2 episodes are listed, the TV stations aired the first episode in the regular time slot and the second episode in the repeat airing time slot.

The regular rating and GAA rating are both cumulative and include viewers from both airings of each episode. The difference is that the GAA rating includes duplicate viewers (people who watch both airings are counted once in the regular rating and twice in the GAA rating).
