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:

After scolding Miggy for not being able to sleep-train baby Jack, Angie and Douglas engage in a competition to see who can sleep-train the baby in one night.

After the previous “fattest housewife” in Westport gets plastic surgery to lose weight, Chloe Brown Mueller rubs it in Katie’s face that Katie has now assumed that title. In order to get revenge on Chloe, Katie goes through great lengths to dig up bad photos of Chloe from high school. In discussing body image with the kids, Katie and her mother, Kathryn, turn out to be bad influences on Anna-Kat and Taylor, unintentionally encouraging them to focus too much on the outward appearance.
