2014-15 Week 15 TV Ratings (first two nights Mon-Tues only due to holiday): 

Households: #1. CBS 5.14/9 rating/share (+32% in rating from first four nights week 14); #2. ABC 2.41/4 (-11%); #3. NBC 2.16/4 (even); #4. Fox 1.06/2 (+1%); #5. The CW 0.70/1 (+8%)
Total Viewers: #1. CBS 8.144 million (+32% from first four nights week 14); #2. ABC 3.900 million (-17%); #3. NBC 3.307 million (-9%); #4. Fox 1.642 million (even); #5. The CW 1.112 million (+7%).

We have the final ratings for Week 4 (12/22/14-12/28/14 LIVE+SD). Among Adults 18-49, NBC won the holiday week with a 1.60, beating out Fox's 1.09 rating, as both were helped by the NFL. Then we had ABC at 0.98, while CBS trailed with just a 0.96.  For Total Viewers, CBS won again and did 6.095 million, followed by NBC with 5.873 million, then it was ABC's 4.117 million and Fox trailed with only 3.525 million.

For season to-date (9/22/14-12/30/14 LIVE+SD), among Adults 18-49 we have NBC on top with a 2.34 rating, followed by CBS with a 1.92, ABC with a 1.69 and Fox with a 1.59.  In Total Viewers, it is CBS on top with 9.639 million, then NBC with 8.262 million, ABC is next with 6.731 million and Fox with 4.978 million.

Back to week 15 (Dec. 29-Jan. 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:

Ryan offers to host the men’s festivities at his place, and to Mike’s dismay, he’s more into party planning than anyone would have thought.
