2016-17 Week 22 TV Ratings (first four nights Mon-Thu): 

Households: #1. CBS 5.04/9 rating/share (even in rating from first four nights week 21); #2. ABC  3.38/6 (-2%); #3. NBC 3.29/6 (-3%); #4. Fox 2.42/4 (-11%); #5. The CW 0.82/1 (-23%).

We have previous week's final ratings, Week 21 (2/6/17-2/12/17, LIVE+SD). CBS obviously won the week in A18-49, with the Grammy's, and did a 2.12 rating.  ABC was #2 with a 1.42 rating.  NBC was #3 with a 0.99 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.88 rating  Among total viewers, CBS of course was #1 with 10.286 million, with ABC #2 at 5.135 million.  NBC was #3 with 4.514 million and Fox at #4 with 3.136 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-2/16/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 2.03 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.99 rating thanks to the Super Bowl and also heavily inflated by a high 7-game World Series. Without those 2 events, Fox would be #4. CBS is  #3 with a 1.57 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.25 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.494 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.651 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 6.380 million as ABC is #4 with 5.153 million.

Back to week 22 (Feb. 13-19), 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:

Downward Dog - "Getting What You Always Wanted" (ABC, 10:00PM ET/PT)
Nan’s long-anticipated national campaign is hours away from launching in Times Square on the Jumbotron, when an overwrought Nan discovers an algorithm has been flipped, and instead of blocking penis photos from the photo feed it will choose them, which could torpedo the whole campaign. Meanwhile, Martin decides to reduce Nan’s stress by taking out his sworn enemy, Pepper, to unexpected results.
