We have the final ratings for Week 19 (1/26/15-2/1/15 LIVE+SD). Among Adults 18-49, NBC obviously won the week with a 7.45 rating, thanks to the Super Bowl. ABC followed with a distant 1.42 rating. Then we had Fox at 1.39, while CBS trailed with a 1.32.  For Total Viewers, NBC was first as well with 22.534 million, followed by CBS with 8.051 million, then it was ABC's 5.242 million and Fox trailed with 4.461 million.

For season to-date (9/22/14-2/5/15 LIVE+SD), among Adults 18-49 we have NBC on top with a 2.45 rating, followed by CBS with a 1.93, Fox moves up to a 1.72 and ABC with a 1.60.  In Total Viewers, it is CBS on top with 9.807 million, then NBC with 8.559 million, ABC is next with 6.332 million and Fox with 5.346 million.

Back to week 19 (Feb. 2-8), 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:
