Leading out of that, Hawaii Five-0 did 9.4 mil and a 1.2, flat versus last week. Blue Bloods drew the night’s largest audience (10.2 mil) while ticking down a tenth in the demo (to a 1.1).

Over on The CW, The Carrie Diaries (874K/0.3) inched up a tenth, while Nikita (741K/0.2) was flat.

NBC’s annual (and slightly postponed) telecast of It’s a Wonderful Life drew 5.4 mil and a 1.1.

    The Carrie diaryies didn’t play on the west coast

      Correction – it didn’t play on KTLA. Other West Coast stations were fine. KTLA, which serves SoCal north of San Diego, chose to show the Hollywood Christmas Parade – which usually is on a Sunday.

    I am sorry to hear that Nikita was flat. Noah Bean’s performance was amazing last night.

    The Carrie Diaries hasn’t been canceled yet, there is still some hope…when you send low rated shows to Friday they are doomed! Move TCD to a different night, there is hope for it – it has been really good this season :)

    H50 and Blue Bloods were really good! They were lower than usual as most people did not realize it was on OR PVR’d as they were out.

    The Lucy Special was a bait and switch. First half was basically a lost “clip show” for christmas and the second half was very popular episode from the series. Spent most of the hour with my face in my iPad.

      I watched as I used to ♥ the show reruns back in the 70’s rabbit ears day. But watching them, all I cold think To myself was, “If a show appeared like this today, it’d be canceled 5 minutes in.”

    HaHa. I watched a little of Hawaii yesterday because Grimm was off. The shows sucks !! It was so so stupid. CBS should cancel this ASAP.
