Week 10 TV Ratings and Analysis; How the Sitcoms Did

2013-14 Week 10 TV Ratings (first four nights, Mon-Thu): 

Households: N/A.
Total Viewers: N/A.
Adults 18-49: N/A.

For previous week's final ratings, Week 9 (11/18/13-11/24/13) had NBC win the week in 18-49 for the eighth time this season with a 2.58 rating, followed by ABC's 2.33, Fox's 2.09 and CBS' 1.91. In total viewers, CBS prevailed with 9.82 million, followed by ABC's 8.5, NBC's 8.41, and Fox's 6.16 million.
Season to-date (9/23/13-11/24/13) in 18-49, NBC leads with a 3.2, followed by CBS with a 2.7, Fox with a 2.5 and ABC also at a 2.5. In total viewers, CBS is on top with 11.97 million, then NBC 9.73, ABC 8.77 and Fox at 7.42.

Back to week 10, 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. This week, due to Thanksgiving, only Monday and Tuesday ratings are final right now, with Wed-Sat being prelim:
