I calculated it as follows: I ranked each show's percentage of capacity for the week from highest (#1) to lowest (#22). Then I ranked each show by average ticket price from highest (#1) to lowest (#22). Any show that showed an improved capacity got to deduct 1 point, any show that lost capacity had to add a point to their total, and any show with the same capacity as the prior week received a zero. Any show that increased its total B.O. cash total got to deduct 1 point, and any show that lost total B.O. cash from the prior week had to add a point. Finally, the show with the biggest loss of capacity got another point added, and the show with the greatest gain in capacity got to deduct another point. The show with the lowest total points is number 1, second lowest is number 2, all the way 22.
