We have the final ratings for Week 9 (11/17/14-11/23/14 LIVE+SD). Among Adults 18-49, NBC won the week with a 2.4, beating out ABC's 2.2 Then we had CBS at 2.0, while Fox trailed with just a 1.1.  For Total Viewers, CBS was back on top with 10.56 million, followed by NBC with 8.46, then it was ABC's 8.2 million and Fox trailed with only 3.17 million.

For season to-date (9/22/14-11/25/14 LIVE+SD), among Adults 18-49 we have NBC on top with a 2.5 rating, followed by CBS with a 2.1, ABC with a 2.0 and Fox with a 1.8.  In Total Viewers, it is CBS on top with 10.46 million, then NBC with 8.51 million, ABC is next with 7.7 million and Fox with 5.58 million.

Back to week 10 (Nov. 24-30), 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:
