    The analysis below is based on the early household numbers and are NOT the same as the numbers that will be posted in the above table later. (See the About section below)

    NOTE: The opinions expressed here are NOT those of SpoilerTV but of the Author of this Article, Marc Berman.

    “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” (NBC), “Survivor” (CBS), “Arrow” (CW), “Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love” (NBC), “Empire” (Fox)

    -Losers (excluding repeats):
    “Frequency” (CW)


    Ratings Breakdown:
    It was a clean overnight household sweep for NBC care of annual special “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” (#1: for the night: 6.7 rating/11 share at 8 p.m.) and made-for television movie “Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love,” which scored a 6.4/11 from 9-11 p.m. ET. Comparably, “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” increased by 16 percent from the 5.8 overnight rating last year, while this second Dolly Parton movie (opposite Fox’s “Empire”) was down by 19 percent from the 7.9/13 for the first one on Thursday, Dec. 10, 2015. That 7.9 overnight household rating translated into 13.03 million viewers and a 1.8 rating/6 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data. And my crystal programming ball tells me there will be a potential third Dolly Parton movie next year.

    On CBS, “Survivor” has to settle for second opposite “Christmas in Rockefeller Center,” but a 5.4/ 9 in the household overnights keeps it in the “winners” category. Once again, that was another memorable tribal council last night. Next on the eye net was veteran “Criminal Minds” at a diluted 4.6/ 7 from 9-10 p.m. (#3), followed by sophomore medical drama “Code Black” at an also third-place 4.0/ 7 at 10 p.m. Upcoming Katherine Heigl drama “Doubt” will replace “Code Black” effective on Feb. 15, 2017.

    It isn’t that often you see Fox’s “Empire” finish second in the 9 p.m. hour, but facing Dolly Parton is no easy feat! It averaged a 5.3/ 8 in the overnights, dipping by 33 percent from the 7.9/12 on the year-ago evening. Lead-in “Lethal Weapon” finished third with a 4.4/ 7 at 8 p.m.

    Elsewhere, The CW continues to benefit via the four superhero series crossover event this week, with the 100th episode of “Arrow” above average at a 2.6/ 4 at 8 p.m. Departing lead-out “Frequency,” however, slipped to a 0.7/ 1 at 9 p.m. despite the stronger lead-in support.

    ABC, meanwhile, was below average with its midweek combination of “The Goldbergs” (#4: 3.9/ 6), “Speechless” (#4: 3.3/ 5), “Modern Family” (#3: 4.8/ 7), ‘black-ish” (#4: 3.6/ 6) and “Designated Survivor” (#2: 4.1/ 7), which has lost a lot of “oomph” factor since its highly rated debut in September.

    The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

    Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

    Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above (We also where possible now post the 18-34 and 25-54 Demo Numbers).

    Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database.
