For season to-date (9/19/16-2/22/17, LIVE+SD), NBC is 1 in A18-49 with a 1.99 rating, followed by Fox at #2 with a 1.95 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 1.54 rating and ABC at #4 with a 1.24 rating. Among total viewers it is CBS #1 at 8.451 million, followed by the dropping NBC at #2 with 7.539 million.
