Reruns decked the halls on Christmas night.

ABC:  THE MIDDLE and MODERN FAMILY led the way with1.3s, giving ABC the win.

NBC:  Nothing in the network’s mix of rerun holiday specials and a repeat of Monday’s HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT scored above 0.7.

CBS:  Ditto for a pair of procedurals and a rerun of the I LOVE LUCY CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, with HAWAII 5-0 getting the 0.7.

FOX:  Even worse, with nothing above the 0.5 for another run of the ICE AGE Christmas cartoon. 

CW:  Another silent night, highlighted by 0.3 for a pair of DreamWorks animation specials.

A new 20/20 is all that’s fresh on network TV tonight.
