Merry Christmas, happy holidays, etc., from TV by the Numbers. As is the case with all national holidays, that means a pause on a lot of the ratings reports you usually see here.

Morning fast national ratings should show up daily (emphasis on should), but most other reports will be delayed until after the holiday weekend. That includes daily cable ratings, final broadcast ratings, DVR numbers and, stretching into next week, weekly reports for broadcast, cable, late night and syndication.

Next week, also look for some year-end posts about how the networks have done so far this fall. Also keep your eyes out for a rundown of each broadcast network’s lowest-rated shows. Only one more week of rerun city, then back to regular action starting just after New Year’s.
