The Thursday cable ratings were predictably quiet last week, due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Hallmark Channel’s premiere broadcast of “Christmas at the Plaza” topped the night’s cable chart with a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 3 million viewers. ESPN’s broadcast of the Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State college football game came second in the night with a 0.4 rating and a 1.35 million viewer audience.

TBS’ special airing of “The Wizard of Oz” rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.3 and 1.4 million viewers, while an earlier broadcast of the movie raked in an additional 0.2 rating and 1.05 million viewers for the network.
