Week 4 TV Ratings and Analysis; How the Sitcoms Did

2014-15 Week 4 TV Ratings (first four nights, Mon-Thu): 

Households: #1. CBS 8.0/13 rating/share (+1% in rating from first four nights week 3); #2. ABC 5.2/9 (-5%); #3. NBC 5.1/8 (-1%); #4. Fox 2.5/4 (even); #5. The CW 1.2/2 (-8%)
Total Viewers: #1. CBS 12.79 million (+1% from first four nights week 3); #2. NBC 8.17 million (+1%); #3. ABC 7.92 million (-5%); #4. Fox 4.02 million (even); #5. The CW 2.05 million (-6%).
Adults 18-49: #1. CBS 3.0/9 rating/share (-3% in rating from first four nights week 3); #2. NBC 2.2/7 (+5%); #3. ABC 2.0/6 (-5%); #4. Fox 1.3/4 (-7%) #5. The CW 0.8/2 (-11%)

We have the final ratings for Week 3 (10/6/14-10/12/14). Among Adults 18-49, NBC won the week again with a 2.3 rating thanks to the NFL, followed by CBS's 2.1, ABC's 1.8 and Fox's 1.8.  For Total Viewers, CBS was on top with 10.32 million, followed by NBC's 8.12. ABC was next with 7.08 million and Fox trailed with 5.45 million.

For season to-date (9/22/14-10/12/14), we do not have for you just yet, due to Nielsen recalculations.

Back to week 4, 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:
