Final three nights (May 19-21) average will be added in soon and we will let you know the final results soon.

Back to week 35 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:
