We have the final ratings for Week 32 (4/27/15-5/3/15 LIVE+SD). Among Adults 18-49, ABC won the week with a 1.5 rating. Then we had CBS at 1.3 followed by NBC at a 1.2, while Fox trailed with a only a 1.0 rating.  For Total Viewers, CBS was first with 8.311 million, followed by ABC with 6.482 million, then it was NBC's 5.587 million and Fox trailed with 3.4 million.

For season to-date (9/22/14-5/3/15 LIVE+SD), among Adults 18-49 we have NBC on top with a 2.09 rating, followed by CBS with a 1.84, ABC in third with a 1.61 and Fox sliding to a 1.58.  In Total Viewers, it is CBS on top with 9.568 million, then NBC with 7.656 million, ABC is next with 6.386 million and Fox with 4.952 million.

Back to week 33 (May 4-10), 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:
