On another torpid holiday night, only one rerun made it past a 1.0 rating.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis follows the chart.

Fasts Demo 2015 Dec TUE.29

CBS:  A 1.2 rerun of NCIS gave the KENNEDY CENTER HONORS as much of a lead-in as the night could nuster, but the HONORS managed just 0.9, down 0.3 from 2014.

FOX:  The network started setting its stage for next week’s new line-up, with reruns of NEW GIRL, GRANDFATHERED and THE GRINDER in their new slots, and the 8PM NEW GIRL fared best at 0.6.

ABC:  Reruns were led by FRESH OFF THE BOAT at 0.8.

NBC:  Reruns of HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT and CHICAGO MED were both at 0.8, 0.1 better than CHICAGO FIRE. 

CW:  Reruns at 0.4/0.2.

The only original programming on any broadcast network tonight is an episode of I GET THAT A LOT on CBS.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
