‘Rudolph’ Rings the Ratings Bell for CBS

Dec 3, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The holiday classic "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" was a winner in the Wednesday ratings race, picking up a 3.8 preliminary Nielsen rating among adults 18-49 for CBS, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Thus far this year, that’s tops for holiday programs. CBS followed "Rudolph" with a new concert/announcement special, "Grammy Nominations Live," good for a 2.3. Fox’s "Glee" at 9 p.m. hit a high note in the demo with a 3.6, the best this season for the musical drama. It was considerably better than its lead-in, "So You Think You Can Dance," which earned a 2.3.

ABC was offering mostly reruns, but a new "The Middle" rated a 2.0, and the soon-to-be canceled "Eastwick" scrounged up a 1.3. "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" brought NBC a 1.8.
