We have previous week's final ratings, Week 12 (12/5/16-12/11/16, LIVE+SD). NBC won the week in A18-49, boosted by two primetime NFL games, and did a 2.93 rating.  Fox was #2 with a 1.36 rating powered by an NFL overrun. CBS was #3 with a 1.24 rating, while ABC did just a 1.01 rating.  Among total viewers, NBC was also #1 with 10.625 million, with CBS #2 at 7.756 million.  ABC was #3 with 4.498 and Fox at #4 with 4.197 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-12/15/16, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 2.31 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.85 rating, which is heavily inflated by a high 7-game World Series. CBS is  #3 with a 1.60 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.32 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.650 million, followed by NBC at #2 with 8.483 million, as it is catching up thanks to two NFL games a week. World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 6.000 million and ABC at #4 with 5.610 million.

Back to week 13 (Dec. 12-18), 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:
