For season to-date (9/22/14-2/19/15 LIVE+SD), among Adults 18-49 we have NBC on top with a 2.37 rating, followed by CBS with a 1.94, Fox is third with a 1.70 and ABC with a 1.61.  In Total Viewers, it is CBS on top with 9.885 million, then NBC with 8.340 million, ABC is next with 6.303 million and Fox with 5.296 million.

Back to week 22 (Feb. 16-22), 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:
