Friday night’s ratings were, as you might expect for the Friday night of a long holiday weekend, pretty modest. Modest enough, in fact, that a 45-year-old kids’ special tied for the top 18-49 rating of the evening.
ABC’s annual showing of “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” earned a 1.1, tying “20/20” for the night’s top spot. ABC led all three hours in adults 18-49.
“The Amazing Race” (1.0) was even week to week for CBS, while the night’s other originals, “MasterChef Junior” (0.9) and “World’s Funniest” (0.6) on FOX, were both down a little. The CW’s lineup of holiday specials outperformed its usual schedule.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.1/4||0.8/3||0.7/2||0.7/3||0.5/2|
|Total Viewers (000s)||4.50||6.19||3.94||2.52||1.59|

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.
