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:
