We have the final ratings for Week 34 (5/11/14-5/17/15 LIVE+SD). Among Adults 18-49, ABC again won the week with a 1.8 rating. Then we had CBS at 1.2 followed by NBC at a 1.2, while Fox trailed with a only a 1.0 rating.  For Total Viewers, CBS was first with 7.33 million, followed by ABC with 7.27 million, then it was NBC's 5.53 million and Fox trailed with 3.49 million.

For season to-date (9/22/14-5/17/15 LIVE+7), among Adults 18-49 we have NBC on top with a 2.4 rating, followed by CBS with a 2.3, ABC in third with a 2.2 and Fox sliding to a 1.9.  In Total Viewers, it is CBS on top with 11.25 million, then NBC with 8.63 million, ABC is next with 7.96 million and Fox with 5.82 million.

Back to week 35 (May 18-25), 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:
