Q: Where do the ratings come from?
A: ShowSkimmer averages together ratings from various websites that publicly provide ratings for TV episodes or movies.
Q: Why is my favorite TV show not included?
A: ShowSkimmer has ratings for over 1800 TV shows. To be included, a TV show must have at least 30 episodes, and the websites that provide the ratings need to provide ratings for a large enough percentage of the show's episodes. We also eliminate shows that have really low ratings.
Q: Why are the "Top 25" and "Top 50" tabs missing from some shows?
A: All shows have a "Top 5" and "Top 10" tab. Only shows with more than 75 episodes have a "Top 25" tab, and only shows with more than 150 episodes have a "Top 50" tab.
