I always figured I was watching what everyone else was watching.

It's (obviously) not as straight-forward as that.

Come to find out, I only watch four (5) of the twenty most watched TV shows (According to Nielson) that are on each week.

I watch Big Bang, Two and a Half Men, NCIS, 60 Minutes and Person of Interest.

Look at the list.

Count how many are on your viewing list.

I think you, likewise, will be surprised.
