Households: #1. CBS 8.3/14 rating/share (+2% in rating from first four nights week 1); #2. ABC 5.8/10 (-9%); #3. NBC 5.7/9 (-5%); #4. Fox 2.7/4 (+4%); #5. The CW 0.6/1 (+20%)

We're back with a new season! We have the final ratings for Week 1 (9/22/14-9/28/14). Among Adults 18-49, NBC won the week with a 3.0 rating thanks to the NFL, followed by CBS's 2.4, ABC's 2.2 and Fox's 2.0.  For Total Viewers, CBS was on top with 10.86 million, followed by NBC's 10.03. ABC was next with 8.26 million and Fox trailed with just 5.24 million.
We will also have Season to-date (9/22/14-9/28/14)  ratings in 18-49 and total viewers next week, since we're only one week in right now.

Back to week 1, 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:
