Invest in 18 Shows: COMPETITION

I've decided to start up a competition to hold everyone over while we enjoy looking at ratings of reruns and new shows that rate as such.

I have come up with a list of shows, new and veterans, and assigned monetary values to them. The way I did so was by taking its average A18-49 L+SD rating, multiplying it by 4, and rounding to the nearest ten. The new shows were all assigned the average value of all veteran shows (because you can't really predict how these shows will do), except for Friday shows which are slightly lower priced.

YOUR CHALLENGE
You have 100 virtual dollars and must "buy" at least 18 shows using the monetary values listed below. The competitor whose shows on average rate best next season will be the winner. You must invest in at least 5 new shows. There is no limit or minimum value on how many shows you may invest in per network or by genre.
