This week’s Tuesday cable ratings were, unsurprisingly, dominated by a slew of Christmas Eve specials.

TBS’ annual “24 Hours of ‘A Christmas Story'” marathon put the network on top of Tuesday’s cable chart, as the marathon peaked with its 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. broadcasts of the holiday film scoring matching 0.7 ratings in the adults 18-49 demo. Meanwhile, Freeform’s broadcast of the “Frosty the Snowman” holiday special placed third in the chart with a 0.6.

Outside of the day’s holiday specials, ESPN’s broadcast of the college football game between Hawaii and BYU landed in the chart’s top 5 with a solid 0.6 rating and 2.43 million viewers.
