For season to-date (9/19/16-1/26/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 2.22 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.68 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 1.25 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS back to #1 at 8.585 million, followed by NBC at #2 with 8.226 million.

Back to week 19 (Jan. 23-29), 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:
