With college football conference championships all airing on broadcast networks, Saturday was a pretty quiet day on cable.

ESPN’s “College GameDay” (0.6 rating) was the top show among adults 18-49, followed by four shows at 0.5: “Live PD,” Hallmark’s movie “Christmas in Evergreen,” “Dragon Ball Super” and “SpongeBob SquarePants.”

“Christmas in Evergreen” was the most-watched show of the day with 3.96 million viewers. That was down from 4.87 million for Hallmark’s movie the previous Saturday.
