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:

Dan, Deb and Chris find themselves stuck in 1920s Chicago, with Al Capone (guest star Tim Robinson) holding their time travel bag hostage.

As they teach him how to be a better mobster – and husband – they quickly realize that proving their loyalty may not be as easy as they thought.

Family Guy - "Hot Shots" (Fox, 9:30PM ET/PT) (Repeat)
