Week 14 (Dec. 24-30) Analysis: This week is the slowest week of the TV season as it is Christmas week. Everyone is in repeats and basically no one is watching TV. As with previous week, we have ratings in two decimal points as of Dec. 17, so we can further see how shows do. We hope to bring this to you every week! Through the final first four night averages CBS has the lead in HH/total viewers and adults 18-49 but with a very low number. ABC is a few tenths behind for second place in 18-49, and is a distant second in HH/viewers. NBC is in third, just a bit behind ABC but Fox is way back in fourth as comedy repeats all week did not deliver. When the week is done, NBC will come back and take the week in both HH/viewers and 18-49 since they have a huge NFL game tonight. More on that later. As for last week, week 13, NBC took home first in adults 18-49, about five tenths higher than second place Fox. And CBS and ABC were well back. Among total viewers, NBC sneaked a win for that crown as well, while CBS had to settle for second. Fox was a distant third and ABC was way back in fourth.

Monday saw NBC win a slow night on Christmas Eve. But starting with ABC, another airing of the holiday special Prep & Landing at 8 did 3.37 million and a 0.91 18-49 rating. At 8:30pm, another airing of the special Shrek the Halls with 3.33 million and a 1.01 18-49 rating. From 9-11pm ABC aired the movie Shrek the Halls, as Castle was preempted, and did 3.35 million and a 1.05 18-49 rating.  For NBC, they had the annual Christmas Eve airing of It's a Wonderful Life from 8-11pm and did 5.62 million and a 1.54 18-49 rating, good enough to win the night. CBS started with repeats of its comedies, as a repeat of How I Met Your Mother did 3.28 million and a 0.90 18-49 rating, while a second repeat at 8:30pm did 3.23 million and a 0.96 18-49 rating.  A repeat of 2 Broke Girls followed with 4.32 million and a 1.20 18-49 rating. Next, a repeat of Mike & Molly did 4.53 million and a 1.21 18-49 rating, which built from its lead-in, which is a good sign. A repeat of drama Hawaii Five-0 at 10pm did 4.75 million and a 0.99 18-49 rating. Fox preempted Bones and dud The Mob Doctor for a Raising Hope marathon. The 8pm repeat did 1.85 million and just a 0.67 18-49 rating. At 8:30pm the repeat did worse with 1.39 million and a 0.50 18-49 rating.

And at 9:30pm the special Second Star to the Left did 0.61 million and a 0.18 18-49 rating. 

On Tuesday, it was ABC with the win in 18-49 thanks to an NBA game bleeding into primetime. First for CBS, which took the total viewer crown, a repeat of NCIS aired at 8 and did 9.84 million and a 1.44 18-49 rating. Next a repeat of NCIS: Los Angeles at 9 did 8.62 million and a 1.45 18-49 rating, which built slightly in 18-49 over its lead-in. And finally at 10pm, a repeat of freshman Vegas did 5.98 million and only a 1.07 18-49 rating. Onto ABC, at 8pm the NBA Christmas Game #2 Thunder at Heat went long and aired into 8:40pm ET.

At 8:40pm ET, the holiday classic special How the Grinch Stole Christmas did a solid 5.09 million and a 1.84 18-49 rating.

Wednesday had CBS win in 18-49 on a very slow night on the day after Christmas. CBS started the night off with a repeat of Criminal Minds at a special time of 8pm doing 8.56 million and a 1.73 18-49 rating. From 9-11pm, CBS aired its annual Kennedy Center Honors special and did 8.18 million but just a 1.38 18-49 rating.  CSI was preempted. ABC kicked off the night with a repeat of The Middle doing 4.54 million and a 1.03 18-49 rating, down about three tenths in 18-49 from previous week. At 8:30pm a repeat of The Neighbors did 4.12 million and a 0.97 18-49 rating, down less than a tenth in 18-49 week-to-week. At 9pm, a repeat of Modern Family did the best of the block with 5.45 million and a 1.70 18-49 rating, which is decent for a repeat and down just about a tenth in 18-49 from previous week.  Suburgatory followed at 9:30pm with 3.64 million and a 1.13 18-49 rating. At 10pm, Nashville was a repeat and did 2.65 million and a 0.65 18-49 rating, as the series will have a special recap episode this Wednesday before it returns the following week (Jan. 9) with new episodes. On Fox, a four-episode marathon of Ben & Kate didn't do much, like the previous two nights of comedy marathons.  At 8pm, the repeat did 1.88 million and a 0.73 18-49 rating, the best it did on the night. 8:30pm repeat dropped to 1.41 million and a 0.66 18-49 rating.

A repeat of Two and a Half Men was up next with 8.62 million and a 2.21 18-49 rating, also solid but down less than a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. At 9pm, a repeat of Person of Interest followed with 10.33 million and a 1.9 18-49 rating, which is still old skewing but up a little over two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. At 10pm, a repeat of freshman Elementary closed the night with 8.06 million and a 1.56 18-49 rating, also up a little over two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. Fox had its fourth night of a comedy marathon, this time we had repeats of freshman comedy The Mindy Project. The 8pm repeat did 1.99 million and a 0.69 18-49 rating, just beating the competing NBC comedy. At 8:30pm, it did worse with 1.6 million and a 0.63 18-49 rating losing to the competing NBC comedy. 9pm also dropped a bit with 1.57 million and a 0.62 18-49 rating. Like the other comedies, it went up a bit at 9:30pm with 1.66 million and a 0.69 18-49 rating, but lost to the competing NBC sitcom. NBC aired repeats of its comedies, as a repeat of 30 Rock did just 2.52 million and a 0.67 18-49 rating. At 8:30pm, a repeat of Up All Night did 2.22 million and a 0.78 18-49 rating. At 9, The Office had a repeat that did 2.16 million and a 0.86 18-49 rating, which was down over a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. A repeat of Parks & Recreation followed at 9:30pm doing 1.94 million and a 0.74 18-49 rating, down less than a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. Still awful. And it got worse at 10pm with a repeat (why, oh why?) of Rock Center with Brian Williams doing just 3.44 million and a 0.88 18-49 rating, but up about a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. The CW's big gun Vampire Diaries was a repeat and did 1.01 million and a 0.42 18-49 rating, up about a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. New series Beauty and the Beast also was a repeat and did 0.91 million and a 0.34 18-49 rating, about on par in 18-49 from previous week.

Now, final numbers for Friday and Saturday are not available, but NBC took home first in 18-49. A repeat of Shark Tank at a special time was first with adults 18-49 at 8pm on ABC, beating CBS' Undercover Boss. ABC was second at 9pm for part two of Back to the Beginning from 9-11pm. From 9-11pm Dateline was #1 easily, as ABC preempted 20/20. Fringe was preempted on Fox.
Saturday had Fox take the night in 18-49 on a very slow night. Fox was highlighted by Cops. CBS struggled with Made in Jersey burn-off episodes again but came back to first at 10pm with 48 Hours. ABC went with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire from 8-110pm and was second place.  NBC went with Chicago Fire from 8-10pm and didn't do that great but Law & Order: SVU went up a bit at 10.

Tonight ABC Sunday is preempted from 8-11pm, but a repeat of AFV airs at 7, as Once Upon a Time, Revenge and Happy Endings/Apt. 23 return next week. Look for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix starting at 8pm. ABC will be fourth. NBC will be #1 with the NFL matchup between the Redskins and Cowboys that will do huge and propel NBC to a weekly win after a horrible week. CBS is in repeat mode following 60 Minutes with repeats of NCIS, The Good Wife & The Mentatlist for likely a third place finish because it will have an NFL overrun. Fox's animation block is in repeats from 8-10pm following an NFL overrun that will hand them second place on the night.

As for the week (week 14), NBC will take first in 18-49 thanks to the game tonight, with CBS coming in second place over Fox and ABC.  For total viewers, it should be NBC on top here as well thanks to the game tonight, then likely CBS, and Fox and ABC way back. As for the coming week (week 15), New Year's Eve is tomorrow night so ABC will do big. New episodes start to return starting Thursday, so be on the look out!
