It was a relatively quiet night in the Friday ratings this week, as all of the usual original series and programs took the week off before Christmas this weekend. In result, it was a rerun-dominated night packed to the brim with encore episodes and rebroadcasts of Holiday specials.
ABC scored the highest non-rerun rating of the night as “20/20” raked in a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49, while the network’s encore airings of “Last Man Standing,” (0.7) “Dr. Ken,” (0.6) and “Shark Tank” (0.7) performed well throughout the night as well.
However, NBC won the night with its rebroadcast of “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” landing a 1.1 rating, while “Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors” and “How Murray Saved Christmas” both scored 0.8s.
The CW’s “Terry Crews Saves Christmas” performed moderately well for the network also, scoring consistent 0.2s throughout its two hour broadcast.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.7/3||0.9/4||0.7/3||0.4/1||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||5.28||4.22||4.36||1.46||0.61|

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.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. 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.
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.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
