TV Ratings: Blake Shelton's 'Christmas' Debuts Strong After 'The Voice'

With nearly all programs down from the previous Monday, the country singer's holiday special nearly matches "Revolution's" most recent score in the time slot, and ABC fizzles without "Dancing With the Stars."

Blake Shelton is nearly as big of a draw as Revolution. The country singer and The Voice star's holiday special Blake Shelton's Not So Family Christmas performed almost as well as the NBC drama when it aired in its time slot Monday night. Following a two-hour semifinals broadcast of The Voice (down 7 percent to a 3.9 rating with adults 18-49), the 10 p.m. show pulled a 2.8 rating with 18-49-ers. That's only off one tenth of a point from Revolution's winter finale. NBC averaged a 3.5 adults rating and 11 million viewers.

CBS placed second in the demo (2.7 adults rating) and total viewers (8.9 million viewers), with all series down from the previous week. How I Met Your Mother (3.0 adults) was down 9 percent, while 2 Broke Girls (3.5 adults) and Mike & Molly (3.1 adults) took larger hits, dropping 15 and 14 percent, respectively. Hawaii Five-0 was only off a tenth of a point, pulling a 2.2 rating with adults 18-49.

Bones turned 150 episodes old on Fox, dropping 21 percent from the previous week to a 1.9 rating in the demo. The Mob Doctor, not long for Monday nights, also took a big hit; it was down to a 0.8 rating with adults 18-49, a 27 percent drop. Fox averaged a 1.4 adults rating and 5.3 million viewers.
With Dancing With the Stars off the schedule until midseason, two broadcasts of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition did not fill its ratings void. A special outing at 8 p.m. pulled just a 0.9 adults rating, while the 9 p.m. episode dropped 15 percent to a 1.1 in the demo. Castle hit a series low at 10 p.m., also falling 15 percent to a 1.7 adults rating. ABC netted a 1.2 adults rating and 5.7 million viewers.
90210 hit 100 episodes on The CW, even with last week's 0.5 adults rating. Gossip Girl also was steady, earning a 0.4 rating in the demo. The CW averaged a 0.4 adults rating and 917,000 viewers.

Univision had a 1.6 rating with adults 18-49 for Monday night.


What did y'all watch? Bones was a mess as usual. Blake's Christmas Special was surprisingly hilarious.

How do you feel about HIMYM? I can't believe the way they are dragging out Robin and Barney.
evett 4th-Dec-2012 10:15 pm (UTC)
They really are dragging it out.

So much secondhand embarrassment watching Robin throw herself on Barney only to have him reject her half naked in his doorway.
treebraids 4th-Dec-2012 10:22 pm (UTC)
Too much unnecessary back and forth...he wants her, she doesn't want him, then she wants him and he doesn't want her.

They can't seriously think that is some good writing.

I thought some of the skits were good, especially Kelly.

also watched 2 broke girls. The actress who plays Caroline's posture is awful in heels, she's squating half the time.

Kelly was flawless!

I go out on Mondays, so nothing.
treebraids 4th-Dec-2012 10:02 pm (UTC)
really? Mondays are the worst nights for drinking.

pub trivia night at the Shaskeen.
mhfromnh 4th-Dec-2012 10:05 pm (UTC)
plus I'm not much of a drinker anyway.
treebraids 4th-Dec-2012 10:06 pm (UTC)
Cool. I've always wanted to go to one of those. I'm usually the one that gets the call from friends asking for answers to random stuff.
lokiyan 5th-Dec-2012 02:20 am (UTC)
I miss monday trivia nights :(. My team fell apart because of stupid drama between one of the girls and someone's bf.

I have it recorded but I'm not surprised it did so well, IMO I think Blake is one of the judges that's more popular with the audience so I bet people were excited for this.

a friend and i watched sunday's ep of the walking dead -- it was crazy!!!
squirrels_oh_no 4th-Dec-2012 10:02 pm (UTC)
I watched Castle and I thought we'd get sex after that hour of whining.

idiftl 4th-Dec-2012 10:04 pm (UTC)
watched my recorded episode of the walking dead lol

thinking of watching hoarders now, heard the latest episode was nastaaaay
idiftl 4th-Dec-2012 10:05 pm (UTC)
oh shit it was a rerun /disappointed :(
redaodai 4th-Dec-2012 10:05 pm (UTC)
I just watched 90210 from last night. The lack of Wes Brown's cuteness made me sad. The guy who plays Jasper really did not age well. And Teddy looked rough as well.

Bones needs to be taken out to a yard and shot. The only interesting thing going on is Cam and what's his face. This episode was so try hard, taking the skull home - really? letting the kids come to the Smithsonian to drop off a skateboard and mix tape - really? couldn't they have taken it to the FBI?

Blake's Christmas Special was pretty solid. I don't think I hated a single thing. When he yelled at those kids - LMBO.
jaimelannister 4th-Dec-2012 10:10 pm (UTC)
I decided to stop watching Bones this Season. Sounds like it was a good decision tbh.
treebraids 4th-Dec-2012 10:15 pm (UTC)
The only thing you have missed is Cam's love life. Bones has regressed and her "isms" have become more cringeworthy than ever.
ride_the_jitney 4th-Dec-2012 10:16 pm (UTC)
Seriously some of the stuff on bones made no sense. Also, the camera use made me a little dizzy at times. I'm glad they don't always do the show like that
treebraids 4th-Dec-2012 10:23 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it made me dizzy as well. I had to keep looking away.
lokiyan 5th-Dec-2012 02:21 am (UTC)
I stopped watching after Brennan got pregnant.
redaodai 4th-Dec-2012 10:07 pm (UTC)
Finally the Catfish episode from last night is online. I need to watch that soon (in case there's a post).

haha, oh Gossip Girl, you so derserve the awful ratings you have

I found it entertaining and his mom is pretty and she looks VERY young, was she a teenage mom?
prophecypro 4th-Dec-2012 10:37 pm (UTC)

Blake's special was super cute. I love that all the musical guests were people who were very close to him and the skits were surprisingly great. I'd love to see him pull a host/musical guest episode of SNL.
treebraids 5th-Dec-2012 10:57 am (UTC)
Nah, the SNL producers will have him doing country bumpkin and The voice skits.
