1967-68 Top 40-- CBS Reigns as NBC and Movies Inch Upward

Written Protesting the Lack of 60's Data by Bridger Cunningham
1967-68 presented an amalgamation of programming varieties shortly before the networks shifted to the latest police trend.  Silly CBS sitcoms ran rampant, along with the network's 13th consecutive season in 1st.  NBC powered up movie nights to give the Tiffany standard sterling competition, and ABC struggled to crack the top-30 bubble. 
TV Ratings Guide only has Top-40 data readily available as complete ratings posts are unavailable for much of the mid-20th century.  This same disclaimer was placed for the 1970-84 Top 30 cards earlier in 2017, and TVRG shattered the 1984 hard-data wall in September and recovered complete data and recovered 6 seasons of data.  Thanks to scrutinizing research of older newspapers and magazine publications, TVRG exclusively holds access to complete ranks (and for most, the ratings to go with them) for the 1964-67, 1971-79, and 1981-present ratings.  Stay tuned, as research efforts are ongoing, and readers may be able to access complete 1967-68 data in the near future. 
This, along with other diverse entries of ratings data can be found in the TVRG Ratings Library, located at the following link: http://www.tvratingsguide.com/2018/01/tvrg-ratings-library.html
