CBS is  #3 with a 1.68 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.37 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.859 million, followed by NBC at #2 with 8.027 million, World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 6.274 million and ABC at #4 with 5.831 million.

Back to week 11 (Nov. 28-Dec. 4), 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:
