For previous week's final ratings, Week 18 (1/20/14-1/26/14) had CBS win the week in 18-49 with a 2.7 rating thanks to the Grammy Awards, followed by Fox's 2.0,  NBC's 1.7 and ABC's 1.4. In total viewers, CBS also lead with 11.28 million, beating Fox which did 6.12 million, NBC followed with 5.95, and ABC trailed with 5.44 million.
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.

Back to week 19, 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:
