Ratings

You can find here the list of almost all the episodes of Dynasty and The Colbys ranked from the most-watched to the less watched.
Somes episodes are missing, though, because their rating is unknow. There are all episodes of season 1 and some episodes of season 2 [Enter Alexis (21.1), Alexis' secret (2.3), Reconciliation (2.5), Viva Las Vegas (2.6), The Miscarriage (2.7), The Mid-East Meeting (2.8), The Psychiatrist (2.9), Blake's Blindness (2.12), The Party (2.15) & The Shakedown (2.20)] and season 3 [The Plea (3.1), The Roof (3.2), The Siblings (3.5), Mark (3.6), Kirby (3.7), Acapulco (3.9), The Search (3.11) & Battle Lines (3.17)].

Nielsen Media Research revised the number of television-equipped households upwards each year at that time so an episode of season 3 with a 25.8 rating was less watched than an episode of season 4 with a 25.7 rating.
