We have previous week's final ratings, Week 29 (4/3/17-4/9/17, LIVE+SD). CBS won the week in A18-49 and did a 1.65 rating boosted by NCAA Championship Game.  NBC was #2 with a 1.05 rating.  ABC was #3 with a 0.98 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.78 rating  Among total viewers, CBS was #1 with 9.095 million, with NBC #2 at 5.363 million.  ABC was #3 with 4.425 million and Fox at #4 with 2.483 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-4/13/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 1.79 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.68 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 1.23 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.233 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.081 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 5.401 million as ABC is #4 with 5.069 million.

Back to week 29 (Apr 10-16), 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:
