NBC was all new on Thursday night but despite repeats on CBS and specials on ABC, their lineup still performed terribly. At 8pm, Community was up a tenth in viewers and the demo while Parks and Recreation was even in viewers but down two tenths in the demo. It will be interesting to see if Parks can do any better with 30 Rock in a lead-in. At 9pm, The Office was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Whitney was down a tenth in viewers for a series low and even in the demo. This show is going to completely bottom out when it moves to Wednesdays. At 10pm, the cancelled Prime Suspect was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, the only to show any real growth but it's too little too late.

Over on FOX, The X-Factor was up six tenths in viewers and even in the demo from its last new airing two weeks ago. It should have done better with less competition and the finale nearing. At 9pm, Bones was up a tenth in both viewers and the demo. Elsewhere, ABC showed some life with the classic holiday special Santa Claus is Comin' to Town and CMA Country Christmas, which performed much better than last year. ABC has gotten some good mileage out of holiday specials this year so far. CBS was entirely in repeats and got weaker as the night went on.
