Monday night has a series premiere and a season premiere. On ABC, the new holiday reality show The Great Christmas Light Fight premieres. ABC is probably hoping this can do enough to have a yearly holiday run but I'm skeptical that it will happen. A more positive result is likely to be seen from NBC's The Sing-Off. The acapella competition was a success during December runs in 2009 and 2010. Then in 2011, it aired as a weekly fall series where it tanked and hasn't been seen since. The return as a holiday run is likely to be a success for NBC, especially behind The Voice. Elsewhere, CBS is only new with Mike & Molly and Hostages so I think both those shows will be down. FOX is the only network with an all-new regular lineup and I think both dramas will be close to their most recent episodes.
