Hawaii Five-0 ranked among the top 30 television programs produced by all broadcast and cable networks for eight of the twelve seasons it was in production. Here's how the numbers looked:


Season          Year          Ranking

                                 2         1969-1970         19

                                 3         1970-1971           7

                                 4         1971-1972         12

                                 5         1972-1973           3

                                 6         1973-1974           5                 

                                 7         1974-1975         10

                                 9         1976-1977         18

                               10         1977-1978         23

It is interesting to note that the seasons that did not rank in the top 30, with the exception of Season 1, when the show was finding its "sea legs," are the ones that people today also feel are the weakest: Seasons 8, 11, and 12.

The following pages were taken from the now-defunct Memories of Hawaii Five-0 website ( They are being preserved here for your reference and enjoyment.

Memories of Hawaii Five-0 was first established in August of 2009. Remembering Jack Lord became its companion website in September 2010. Both were started by yours truly and have been managed by me, but they never would have come as far as they have without the assistance of their members. I am grateful to them all and am proud that several are still active with us today.

I have kept the basic Hawaii Five-0 pages in place in the "Actor" section. There, they have parallel construction with the Stoney Burke pages. The rest of the Five-0 pages will be here, in the supplement.
