We have previous week's final ratings, Week 24 (2/27/17-3/6/17, LIVE+SD). NBC won the week in A18-49 and did a 1.48 rating.  CBS was #2 with a 0.95 rating.  ABC was #3 with a 0.81 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.74 rating  Among total viewers, NBC was #1 with 7.265 million, with CBS #2 at 6.063 million.  ABC was #3 with 3.183 million and Fox at #4 with 2.432 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-3/9/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 1.93 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.85 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 1.50 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.27 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.280 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.407 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 5.948 million as ABC is #4 with 5.203 million.

Back to week 25 (Mar 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:
