The numbers speak for themselves. Please note that 14x06's votes are still subject to change.

(Caution: Large images.)

The first chart shows the review score percentages per episode. This is the most accurate graph as it accounts for the large variations in reviewer turnout.

Season 14 is the worst performer of the 4, with the lowest ratio of favorable reviews (scores of 8 and up), as shown in the third chart. It is also the season with

Here's the XLS file (for maximum compatibility) with the numbers, feel free to peruse it:
