You know Christmas is coming when Rudolph shows up. Unfortunately his light did not shine so bright last night: CBS’ airing of the 1964 stop-motion animation Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer (2.9/8) special was down 28% from last year. Also down Tuesday was The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (3.5/10). Airing at 10 PM, the lingerie show fell 24% from last year’s all-time high. However, Victoria’s Secret was the night’s highest-rated show. CBS also broadcast a repeat of NCIS (2.0/5) at 9 PM.
After a rise last week, NBC’s The Voice (3.4/10) also fell, its live results broadcast slipped 11% from the November 27 show. Go On (2.5/7) was flat with last week as was The New Normal (1.7/4). Parenthood (1.7/5) was down 6% from its November 27 broadcast.
CBS won the night in the 18-49 demo and in overall viewers with 10.16 million. (more…)
