We have previous week's final ratings, Week 15 (12/28/15-1/3/16, LIVE+SD). NBC won the slow week in A18-49, thanks to Sunday Night Football of course, as NBC did a 1.75 rating.  CBS was #2 with a 1.16 rating, boosted by an NFL overrun. ABC was #3 with a 1.01 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.92 rating.  Among total viewers, CBS was #1 with 6.718 million, with NBC #2 at 6.658 million.  ABC was #3 with 4.141 million and Fox at #4 with just 2.783 million.

For season to-date (9/21/15-1/7/16, LIVE+SD), NBC is #1 in A18-49 with a 2.25 rating, followed by CBS at #2 with a 1.80 rating. Fox at #3 with a 1.57 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.42 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 9.173 million, followed by NBC at #2 with 8.137 million, ABC #3 with 5.746 million and Fox #4 with 4.972 million.

Back to week 16 (Jan. 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:
