Glee recovered from its pre-Thanksgiving slump, but CBS specials guided by Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and repeats edged Fox for the nightly ratings title. Unlike last night though, ABC did manage to top Univision.

CBS's Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer's 3.8 adults 18-49 rating lead the specials on the night and was even with last year's rating. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show's 3.4 rating was up 17% vs. last season's show. Worth noting that even after an NCIS repeat that the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show out rated the typical The Good Wife by 40+%. Is a wardrobe change in order?

On Fox, Glee's 4.5 adults 18-49 rating was up 13% from last week's season low and was the top rated show on the night. Raising Hope's 2.7 rating was up 8% vs. last week. While Running Wilde's 1.4 rating was a tenth above its last original episode three weeks ago.

ABC's Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas stole a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating, but that was down 25% from last year. Shrek The Halls 2.4 rating was 17% lower than last year. In its first outing at 9pm, No Ordinary Family rose a tenth of a ratings point to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. That was no help for Detroit 1-8-7 (which is heading to Cancellville), as it dropped 6% to a 1.6 rating.

NBC's Christmas In Rockefeller Center's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating rose a tenth from last season's show. And recovering from last week's season low, The Biggest Loser (shifted an hour later) rose 26% to a 2.9 rating.

CW's One Tree Hill scored a 1.6 rating in the CW target women 18-34 ratings, while Life Unexpected nabbed a 1.2 rating among women 18-34.

Late-night results are below the primetime data.

Definitions:

Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live football game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.

Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
