It was a fairly quiet night in the Saturday ratings this week, following the Holiday heavy Friday lineup the night before.
ABC managed to grab the top spot with its broadcast of the college football game between Notre Dame and Stanford raking in a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 with 4.81 million viewers. This was two-tenths higher than the 1.0 that last week’s “Saturday Night College Football” game scored on the network as well.
FOX’s own coverage of the Washington State Cougars vs the Washington Huskies primetime college football game scored a 0.5 average for itself also with 1.77 million viewers.
In addition, it turned out to be another a holiday-themed Saturday night for CBS too, with broadcasts of “Robbie the Reindeer in Hooves of Fire,” “Robbie the Reindeer in Legend of the Lost Tribe,” and “The Story of Santa Claus” all scoring 0.7 and 0.5 ratings, respectively.

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.
