Prompt #1

The lowest-rated show across all six networks—yes, six—this season averaged a 1.23 A18-49 rating. Comparatively, the Big 4 league average in 2016-17 was a 1.22. Granted, the season in question was before the rise of DVR and streaming so there was no such thing as L+35 gains. Regardless, which season am I describing?

Prompt #2
An NBC sitcom that starred somebody currently in The Good Place finished its run this season in 73rd place. In fact, that season all but one of the 13 lowest-rated sitcoms was canceled. The sitcom spared was in its first season and would go on to become a classic hit. Which show is it?

Prompt #3
This season, three of the Big 4 networks were down year-to-year, while the fourth was not. Ironically, the network that was not down year-to-year ended up canceling more shows than they renewed. The question: what was the average rating of the network that while not down year-to-year, canceled more shows than they renewed?
