Week 2 TV Ratings and Analysis; How the Sitcoms Did

2013-14 Week 2 TV Ratings (first four nights, Mon-Thu): 

Households: #1. CBS 7.1/11 rating/share (-8% in rating from first four nights week 1); #2. NBC 5.6/9 (-11%); #3. ABC 5.5/9 (-8%); #4. Fox 3.7/6 (-3%); #5. The CW 0.9/1 (+80%).
Total Viewers: #1. CBS 11.22 million (-9%); #2. NBC 9.07 million (-11%); #3. ABC 8.55 million (-9%); #4. Fox 6.14 million (-1%); #5. The CW 1.45 million (+86%).
Adults 18-49: #1. NBC 2.8/8 rating/share (-13%); #2. CBS 2.6/7 (-13%); #3. ABC 2.3/7 (-15%); #4. Fox 2.1/6 (-5%); #5. The CW 0.6/2 (+100%).

It's a new season, and a new format to the weekly ratings report! It might be a bit more cleaner, but we are working on tweaking this and making it even better. So bare with us! Week 1 had NBC easily win the week in 18-49 with a 3.07 rating, followed by ABC's 2.29, CBS's 2.24 and Fox 2.22. In total viewers, CBS prevailed with 10.38 million, followed by NBC's 9.71, ABC's 7.99, and Fox's 6.09 million. Back to week 2, read our full night-by-night analysis followed by how the sitcoms did! GREAT showings are in BOLD. If they are in bold in both total viewers and 18-49, then it is very impressive.
