We have previous week's final ratings, Week 25 (3/6/17-3/12/17, LIVE+SD). NBC won the week in A18-49 and did a 1.22 rating.  ABC was #2 with a 1.13 rating.  CBS was #3 with a 1.08 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.73 rating  Among total viewers, CBS was #1 with 7.289 million, with NBC #2 at 5.936 million.  ABC was #3 with 4.379 million and Fox at #4 with 2.586 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-3/16/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 1.91 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.81 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 1.48 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.27 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.234 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.368 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 5.821 million as ABC is #4 with 5.181 million.

Back to week 26 (Mar 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:
