We have previous week's final ratings, Week 27 (3/20/17-3/26/17, LIVE+SD). CBS won the week in A18-49 and did a 1.51 rating boosted by NCAA coverage.  NBC was #2 with a 1.14 rating.  ABC was #3 with a 0.92 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.86 rating  Among total viewers, CBS was #1 with 7.425 million, with NBC #2 at 5.575 million.  ABC was #3 with 4.386 million and Fox at #4 with 2.813 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-3/30/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 1.85 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.74 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 1.25 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.169 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.230 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 5.604 million as ABC is #4 with 5.128 million.

Back to week 28 (Mar 27-Apr 2), 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:
