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.

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:
