You can expect to see the “Trolls Holiday” special on your TV for years to come, based on the returns for its debut the night after Thanksgiving.

The show performed well in the same-day ratings for the week of Nov. 20, and it put up some healthy growth with three days of delayed viewing. The special grew from a 1.5 to a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 — putting it sixth for the week in Live +3 — and added 2.7 million total viewers.

With numbers like that, it’s safe to say “Trolls Holiday” will become a regular part of NBC’s specials rotation in the coming years.
