On Thursday night, the Cowboys played which automatically boosted NBC's Thursday Night Football. It was up a bit in viewers from last week's Thanksgiving game and down a tenth in the demo. The CW had the finale of its four-show crossover and DC's Legends of Tomorrow was up 1.5 million viewers and six tenths in the demo. The viewer total was a series high and the demo tied a series high with the pilot in January. This crossover week was a huge success for the CW but they'd be wise to use them sparingly so it is still a big event when it happens. At 9pm, Supernatural was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. The 9pm shows did not benefit from the big crossover at all. On ABC, the first airing of A Charlie Brown Christmas didn't do all that well by its standards and not as well as the Peanuts Halloween & Thanksgiving specials this year. I think the Thursday night airing against things like the Cowboys game and The Big Bang Theory played a factor. At 9pm, the season premiere of The Great American Baking Show was on par with its performance last year. It's serviceable for holiday filler.

On CBS, The Big Bang Theory was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo with its last airing two weeks ago. The other three comedies were up from last week's Thanksgiving airings (and series lows) but they weren't too impressive overall. The Great Indoors is just losing too much of its lead-in and should be moved to Monday at 9:30 as soon as Superior Donuts is ready to take the post-Big Bang slot. At 10pm, Pure Genius was even with last week's Thanksgiving airing. Finally on FOX, Rosewood was even with its last new airing while Pitch was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Of course both were down big from last week's repeats following the huge NFL game. For Rosewood, there was a 0.7 two weeks ago then a 2.2 for last week's repeat, followed by another 0.7. Why did FOX not air new episodes after what was surely going to be a huge NFL game, even if it was a holiday? This is one reason why they're struggling so badly.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: DC's Legends of Tomorrow (CW)
