For season to-date (9/22/14-1/22/15 LIVE+SD), among Adults 18-49 we have NBC on top with a 2.22 rating, followed by CBS with a 1.99, Fox moves up to a 1.75 and ABC with a 1.62.  In Total Viewers, it is CBS on top with 9.938 million, then NBC with 7.911 million, ABC is next with 6.413 million and Fox with 5.423 million.

Back to week 18 (Jan. 19-25), 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:
