In a close finish, we have a ratings winner for the full 52-week 2014-2015 TV season. For the second consecutive year, NBC has won the key demo of viewers 18-49.

With the season about to wind down, NBC has a 2.1 average rating in the demo for the full year, ahead of ABC and CBS with 1.9 averages and Fox with a 1.7. Excluding the ratings boost NBC received from the Super Bowl, it would be averaging a 2.0 — still ahead of the competition.

CBS was a big winner in total viewers, averaging 9.5 million to 7.7 million for NBC, 7.1 million for ABC and 5.1 million for Fox.
