@Seijisensei :

If I'm not mistaken, a way to know if a show has a lot of viewers compared to the amount of households is to look at the percentage of people which are at least 4 years old who are watching the show.

*2.0 *1.0 *0.6 *3.3 *0.9 *1.7 *0.0 *2.0 *1.1 *0.3 08/06 MBS 25:58-26:28 TIGER & BUNNY

In this case, the household rating is 2.0, however the viewer share (how many people are watching it/total japanese viewers) is only 1.0. That means it isn't very family friendly (which is to be expected).

Another example with One Piece and Chibi Maruko-chan :

12.6 *6.5 16.6 *4.5 11.6 *8.8 *2.5 *8.2 *8.2 *2.0 10/23 CX* 09:30-10:00 ワンピース
11.4 *7.5 19.1 10.1 *6.7 *7.2 *3.1 *8.4 11.4 *4.1 10/23 CX* 18:00-18:30 ちびまる子ちゃん

Even if in this case One Piece has a higher household rating (12.6 > 11.4), Chibi Maruko-chan has a significant advantage in terms of the number of viewers (7.5 > 6.5). This shows that it's more a family show than One Piece.
