We have previous week's final ratings, Week 28 (3/27/17-4/2/17, LIVE+SD). CBS won the week in A18-49 and did a 1.88 rating boosted by NCAA Final 4 coverage.  NBC was #2 with a 1.03 rating.  ABC was #3 with a 0.95 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.79 rating  Among total viewers, CBS was #1 with 9.657 million, with NBC #2 at 5.308 million.  ABC was #3 with 4.416 million and Fox at #4 with 2.649 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-4/6/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 1.82 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.71 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 1.51 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.24 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.273 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.158 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 5.500 million as ABC is #4 with 5.101 million.

Back to week 29 (Apr 3-9), 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:
