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.
