We have previous week's final ratings, Week 23 (2/20/17-2/26/17, LIVE+SD). ABC won the week in A18-49 again but it was boosted big by The Oscars and did a 2.40 rating.  CBS was #2 with a 1.01 rating.  NBC was #3 with a 0.99 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.81 rating  Among total viewers, ABC was #1 with 8.847 million, with CBS #2 at 6.800 million.  NBC was #3 with 4.260 million and Fox at #4 with 2.871 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-3/2/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 1.96 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.89 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 1.52 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.28 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.339 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.464 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 6.084 million as ABC is #4 with 5.248 million.

Back to week 24 (Feb. 7-Mar 5), 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:
