2016-17 Week 22 TV Ratings (first four nights Mon-Thu): 

Households: #1. CBS 5.04/9 rating/share (even in rating from first four nights week 21); #2. ABC  3.38/6 (-2%); #3. NBC 3.29/6 (-3%); #4. Fox 2.42/4 (-11%); #5. The CW 0.82/1 (-23%).
Total Viewers: #1. CBS 8.110 million (even from first four nights week 21); #2. ABC 5.243 million (-2%); #3. NBC 5.219 million (-3%); #4. Fox 3.903 million (-10%); #5. The CW 1.334 million (-21%).

We have previous week's final ratings, Week 21 (2/6/17-2/12/17, LIVE+SD). CBS obviously won the week in A18-49, with the Grammy's, and did a 2.12 rating.  ABC was #2 with a 1.42 rating.  NBC was #3 with a 0.99 rating, while Fox was #4 with a 0.88 rating  Among total viewers, CBS of course was #1 with 10.286 million, with ABC #2 at 5.135 million.  NBC was #3 with 4.514 million and Fox at #4 with 3.136 million.

For season to-date (9/19/16-2/16/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 2.03 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.99 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 1.57 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.25 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.494 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.651 million. Super Bow/World Series boosted Fox still at #3 with 6.380 million as ABC is #4 with 5.153 million.

Back to week 22 (Feb. 13-19), 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:
