Prior to Sunday's post-episode of , there hadn't been a new episode of since December 7, 2010. That Episode scored a 4.4 adults 18-49 (and 11.07 million viewers). Sunday night, after record-breaking viewing for XLV, had an 11.1 adults 18-49 rating and 26.8 million viewers. Will that exposure result in some ratings boost tonight?
also hasn't aired an original since December 7. Last time around it averaged a 2.8 rating and 6.915 million viewers. It did get a fair bit of promotion during the .
Traffic Light premieres tonight after. I'm not sure how it will do, but it definitely needs to do better than the 1.7 adults 18-49 rating and 4.07 million viewers pulled on December 7.
Note: those December 7 episodes aired against repeats on CBS, and ABC ran the Charlie Brown Christmas special from 8p-9p (that pulled a 2.6 A18-49 rating, better thanlooks to do tonight) and at 9pm (that pulled a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating, likely in the ballpark of where 'V" will come in tonight).
Not sure of the best way to cram all that into a poll, but feel free to post your guesses in the comments. As far as Fox, my guesses that I wouldn't wager any money on for tonight are:
Traffic Light: 2.1
