    Ratings Breakdown:
    It was an easy Thursday overnight victory for NBC care of the 21 to 13 victory for the Kansas City Chiefs over the Oakland Raiders on NFL Football at an estimated 9.1 rating/15 share in households. Combined with live coverage on the NFLN and the household rating for the match-up increased to an 11.8 from 8:30-11:45 p.m. ET. As a reminder, results for any live sporting event are always approximate.

    In the specials department was Fox’s holiday-themed “Taraji’s White Hot Christmas,” headlined by “Empire” star Taraji B. Henson, at a not-so-hot 2.6/ 4 (#3) at 8 p.m. That led into a modest 2.2/ 4 (#4) for the season (or series) finale of freshman drama “Pitch” at 9 p.m.

    In series-finale news, ABC drama “Notorious” earned its cancellation stripes at a 1.9/ 3 in the household overnights at 10 p.m., which trailed CBS’ soon-to-conclude “Pure Genius” (#2: 3.6/ 6) by a hefty 47 percent.

    Earlier in the evening on ABC were encore telecasts of animated holiday specials “Toy Story That Time Forgot” (#4: 2.5/ 4) and “Shrek the Halls” (#4: 2.3/ 4) from 8-9 p.m., followed by “The Great American Baking Show” at a 2.7/ 4 at 9 p.m. CBS populated the 8-10 p.m. block with a repeat of “The Big Bang Theory” at a second-place 6.1/10 in the 8 p.m. half-hour, followed by original telecasts of “The Great Indoors” (#2: 4.7/ 7), “Mom” (#2: 5.1/ 8) and “Life in Pieces” (#2: 4.2/ 7) from 8:30-10 p.m. Unfortunately, CBS has never been able to capitalize on the lead-out spot out of “The Big Bang Theory.”

    The CW capped off the evening with the pairing of “D.C. Legends of Tomorrow” (#5: 1.5/ 3) and “Supernatural” (#5: 1.1/ 2) from 8-10 p.m. at typical overnight levels. “Supernatural” moves to Thursdays at 8 p.m. into upcoming drama “Riverdale” effective on Thursday, Jan. 26. And “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” will move to Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET (out of “The Flash”) beginning on Jan. 24.

    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.
