Among total viewers,
CBS is ahead for the season averaging 10.873 million viewers.
NBC is second with 10.309 million, followed by
FOX with 8.177 million,
ABC with 7.426 million,
Univision with 3.080 million and
CW with 1.867 million.

Among adults 18-49
NBC is in first place with a 3.1 rating average, up 19 percent from last season.
FOX was second with a 2.8, up 12 percent from last season.
CBS was third with a 2.4 rating average, down 23 percent from last season.
ABC was fourth with a 2.1 down 9 percent from last season.
Univision was fifth with a 1.2, down 20 percent from last season.
The CW finished sixth with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating average, up 14% from the previous season.

So despite NBC getting all the bad press for it's mostly failing scripted shows (The Blacklist is the exception), it still gets more viewers from Sunday Night Football, The Voice, and The Olympics.

ABC has almost no sports since it has moved everything over to the all profitable ESPN. It's only competitive reality show, Dancing with the Stars, is growing older. It tends to compete for female viewers. Now Disney is the most powerful force in cable television between ESPN, DISNEY and ABCFamily (and others). So there seems to be little motivation to try and build ABC back into a powerhouse.

MODERN FAMILY (5th season), CASTLE (6th season), and GREY’S ANATOMY (10th season) are aging but are still ABC's top rated scripted shows, with no super strong shows on the horizon.

So is ABC going to be the first network to slip into oblivion?
