ABC won the week in A18-49 and did a 1.18 rating.  CBS was #2 with a 1.08 rating.  NBC was #3 with a 0.98 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.82 rating  Among total viewers, CBS of course was #1 with 7.546 million, with NBC #2 at 4.611 million.  ABC was #3 with 4.494 million and Fox at #4 with 2.867 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-2/22/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 1.99 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.95 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 1.54 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.24 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.451 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.539 million.

Back to week 23 (Feb. 20-26), 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:
