8:00 How the Grinch Stole Christmas (SPECIAL)
8:30 Shrek the Halls (SPECIAL)
9:00 Dancing with the Stars (15th Edition Finale)
ABC has Christmas specials at 8pm which are reliable holiday performers. They lead into the two hour finale of the All Star edition of Dancing with the Stars. It should easily pull a season high especially since it's not competing with The Voice at all on this night.
Prediction: Dancing - 15.7 million, 2.6
8:00 NCIS #218 "Gone"
9:00 NCIS: Los Angeles #80 "Collateral"
10:00 Vegas #8 "Exposure"
CBS is all new. I think the 8-10pm hours will be steady but Vegas could drop against tougher and also old-skewing competition on ABC.
Prediction: NCIS - 17.0 million, 3.1/Los Angeles - 14.9 million, 2.7/Vegas - 9.3 million, 1.6
8:00 The Voice
9:00 Go On #10 "Back, Back, Back... It's Gone"
9:30 The New Normal #10 "The XY Factor"
10:00 Parenthood #62 "You Can't Always Get What You Want"
NBC is all new but I think it could be down across the board for them because The Voice had been dropping and the rest of the night is facing the Dancing finale which could still be strong even though it's no longer dominant.
Prediction: Voice - 9.1 million, 3.3/Go On - 5.8 million, 2.0/Normal - 4.2 million, 1.4/Parenthood - 4.4 million, 1.6
8:00 Raising Hope #52 "The Walk for the Runs"
8:30 Ben and Kate #9 "Guitar Face"
9:00 New Girl #33 "Eggs"
9:30 The Mindy Project #7 "Teen Patient"
FOX is all new with its low rated comedy lineup. I think we'll see similar (and very bad) numbers like last week.
Prediction: Hope - 3.7 million, 1.6/Ben and Kate - 2.6 million, 1.2/New Girl - 4.4 million, 2.2/Mindy - 2.8 million, 1.3
