THE RUNDOWN: Thursday, December 15

ABC
8:00 A Charlie Brown Christmas (SPECIAL)
9:00 The Year with Katie Couric (SPECIAL)
ABC is once again airing specials on Thursday including the extended A Charlie Brown Christmas and a Katie Couric special that looks back at 2011. Both should see decent numbers.
Prediction: Christmas - 8.1 million, 2.6/Couric - 8.5 million, 2.3

CBS
8:00 The Big Bang Theory #89 "The Infestation Hypothesis" (REPEAT)
8:30 Rules of Engagement #79 "The Chair"
9:00 Person of Interest #10 "Number Crunch"
10:00 The Mentalist #80 "Fugue in Red"
CBS is all new except for the 8pm half hour with The Big Bang Theory being a repeat. This could have a ripple effect down the lineup and we could see dips across the board and perhaps even season lows.
Prediction: Rules - 8.6 million, 2.7/Person - 11.9 million, 2.6/Mentalist - 12.5 million, 2.8

NBC
8:00 Community #36 "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" (REPEAT)
8:30 Parks and Recreation #53 "The Treaty" (REPEAT)
9:00 The Office #159 "Pams' Replacement" (REPEAT)
9:30 Whitney #4 "A Decent Proposal" (REPEAT)
10:00 Prime Suspect #10 "A Gorgeous Mosaic"
The only thing new on NBC is a burnoff of Prime Suspect. It wouldn't be surprising to see it hit a series low.
Prediction: Suspect - 3.7 million, 1.0

FOX
8:00 The X-Factor
9:00 Bones #125 "The Finder" (REPEAT)
The X-Factor is new for FOX with its final results show before finale week. It could up some from last week with that in mind and less competition.
Prediction: X Factor - 10.5 million, 3.1
