Christmas Eve Ratings: The Santa in the Slush

I usually try to pull ratings information from TVBytheNumbers - they lay it out so well, and make it easy to compare the week to week changes in numbers. But, with the holidays, they aren't posting much until after the new year.

Zap2It, however, has the ratings in terms of shares, which at least tells us....

The Santa in the Slush won it's timeslot! Hooray. Hopefully some brand new fans were gleaned from one of the best Bones episodes!

FOX began the night at 8 p.m. in the top spot courtesy of a repeat Christmas-themed "Bones," 2.7/6. NBC gave over its night to the Jimmy Stewart holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life" (2.6/6) while ABC went the same movie route with the more contemporary "Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" (2.4/6). CBS started off its evening in fourth place with repeats of "New Adventures of Old Christine" and "Gary Unmarried" averaging a 2.3/5 for the hour. The special "The Flight Before Christmas" mustered a 1.0/2 for The CW.
"The Man in the Mansion" came in 3rd in it's slot.
At 9 p.m., CBS shot ahead of the competition with a repeat of "Criminal Minds," 4.1/9. NBC's movie held on to second place, while ABC slipped to third to tied with a second episode of "Bones" on FOX, 2.4/5. "The Story of Santa Claus" caused The CW to dip to a 0.7/2.

Broadway in Concert: Eric Millegan

Eric Millegan continues to stay busy with his various passions and pursuits. On January 14th, he will appear at The Canyon club, in their Broadway in Concert series.

Eric Millegan, who has starred for three season as the genius forensic anthropologist Dr. Zack Addy in the FOX TV hit detective drama series Bones, brings his successful concert act to The Canyon WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 14. Though a relative newcomer to television, Eric has already worked on some of television's most important shows. He has appeared on the NBC hit Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Sidney Lumet's A&E courtroom drama 100 Centre Street. Before his success on television, Eric had a bountiful ten year career in the theater. Employing what Variety called "winning stage presence and a sweet, melodious tenor," he starred as "Harold" opposite Oscar winner Estelle Parsons in the world premiere of Harold & Maude: The Musical at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey. His New York theater credits include the Broadway revival of Jesus Christ Superstar, the Encores presentation of Hair at City Center (in which he sang the "Aquarius" solo), and the New York premiere of Dead Man Walking at Lincoln Center. He also co-starred in the Off-Broadway hit Altar Boyz. His regional theater credits include roles at the Guthrie Theater, Cincinnati Playhouse In the Park, and The Repertory Theater of St. Louis. More recently, Eric starred as "Frederic" in Gilbert & Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance at the Silva Concert Hall at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts in Eugene, Oregon; and in concert at both the prestigious Signature Theatre in Washington, D.C. and Don't Tell Mama's in New York's Broadway theatre district. www.erickmillegan.com.
