For season to-date (9/22/14-4/16/15 LIVE+SD), among Adults 18-49 we have NBC on top with a 2.12 rating, followed by CBS with a 1.84, ABC in third with a 1.61 and Fox sliding to a 1.59.  In Total Viewers, it is CBS on top with 9.581 million, then NBC with 7.734 million, ABC is next with 6.384 million and Fox with 5.000 million.

Back to week 30 (April 13-19), 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:
