Week 20 TV Ratings and Analysis; How the Sitcoms Did

2013-14 Week 20 TV Ratings (first four nights, Mon-Thu): 

Households: #1. CBS 7.2/11 rating/share (+24% from first four nights Week 19); #2. NBC 5.1/8 (+38%); #3. Fox 4.7/7 (-2%); #4. ABC 3.8/6 (+6%); #5. The CW 1.2/2 (even)
Total Viewers: #1. CBS 11.58 million (+25% from first four nights Week 19); #2. NBC 8.54 million (+46%); #3. Fox 7.66 million (-4%); #4. ABC 5.83 million (+8%); #5. The CW 1.84 million (-7%).

For previous week's final ratings, Week 19 (1/27/14-2/2/14) had Fox win the week in 18-49 with a 10.5 rating thanks of course to the Super Bowl, followed by CBS' 1.5,  NBC's 1.3 and ABC's 1.2. In total viewers, Fox also lead with 30.14 million, beating CBS which did 7.81 million, NBC followed with 4.75, and ABC trailed with 4.56 million.
Season to-date (9/23/13-2/2/14) in 18-49, Fox is now in front with a 2.9, followed by NBC with a 2.8, CBS with a 2.6, and ABC at a 2.1. In total viewers, CBS is still on top with 11.34 million, then NBC 9.01, Fox jumps to 8.56 and ABC 7.54. The Super Bowl airing put Fox on top for the season in 18-49, for now.

Back to week 20, 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:
