Season to-date (9/23/13-1/26/14) in 18-49, NBC leads with a 2.9, followed by CBS with a 2.6, Fox with a 2.5 and ABC at a 2.1. In total viewers, CBS is on top with 11.42 million, then NBC 9.16, ABC 7.61 and Fox at 7.36. The Super Bowl airing tonight will put Fox on top for the season likely in 18-49 and perhaps total viewers.
