We have previous week's final ratings, Week 20 (1/30/17-2/5/17, LIVE+SD). Fox obviously won the week in A18-49, with the Super Bowl, and did a big 9.85 rating.  ABC was #2 with a 1.06 rating.  CBS was #3 with a 0.91 rating, while NBC was #4 with a 0.81 rating  Among total viewers, Fox of course was #1 with 29.710 million, with CBS #2 at 5.963  million.  ABC was #3 with 3.992 million and NBC at #4 with 3.695 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-2/2/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 2.09 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 2.05 rating thanks to the Super Bowl and also heavily inflated by a high 7-game World Series. Surprised Fox didn't take #1 after the Super Bowl. CBS is  #3 with a 1.54 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.24 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.406 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.812 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 6.541 million as ABC is #4 with 5.157 million. The Super Bowl wasn't enough for Fox to get out of #3 in total viewers.

Back to week 21 (Feb. 6-12), 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:
