Notes:
For the 1996-1997 television season there were an estimated 97,000,000 TV households and 251,300,000 TV viewers. The rating is the percentage of TV households so for this season each rating point represents 970,000 households. Each Adults 18-49 rating point represents 1,229,500 viewers, 1% of TV viewers between ages 18 and 49.

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.

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).
