We have previous week's final ratings, Week 9 (11/14/16-11/20/16, LIVE+SD). NBC won the week in A18-49, boosted by SNF, and did a 2.33 rating.  CBS was #2 with a 1.50 rating powered by an NFL overrun. ABC was #3 with a 1.47 rating, while Fox did just a 1.03 rating.  Among total viewers, CBS was #1 with 8.869 million, with NBC #2 at 8.499 million.  ABC was #3 with 6.138 million and Fox at #4 with only 3.105 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-11/22/16, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 2.15 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 2.03 rating, which is heavily inflated by a high 7-game World Series. CBS is  #3 with a 1.71 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.40 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 9.035 million, followed by NBC at #2 with 7.819 million, World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 6.622 million and ABC at #4 with 5.976 million.

Back to week 10 (Nov. 21-27), 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:

Dre brings everyone together for a rowdy family game night and the competition is fierce. The game of choice is Monopoly and as the night progresses, alliances are formed and some are pushed to their limits. Meanwhile, Bow makes it clear how she feels about Junior’s girlfriend.

The Mayor - "City Hall-oween" (ABC, 9:30PM ET/PT)
As Halloween approaches, Mayor Courtney Rose and Police Chief Fox (Kristen Johnston) find themselves at odds on how to handle the community’s first annual spook-tacular celebration at City Hall. During the night of the bash, it dawns on Courtney that throwing a party to keep kids safe doesn’t address the bigger issues in Fort Grey and plans to work with Chief Fox going forward. Meanwhile, Dina gets into the spirit by dressing up as Congresswoman Maxine Waters, while Jermaine and T.K. set out to prank Val who has the last laugh when she outsmarts the guys at their own game.
