I Love Lucy Ratings

Ratings: I Love Lucy Easily Draws Biggest Audience on Quiet Wednesday

CBS’ double helping of colorized I Love Lucy episodes on Wednesday averaged 7.4 million total viewers and a 1.1 demo rating, easily drawing Christmas Eve eve’s largest audience.

In the demo, Lucy placed a close second behind NBC’s airing of the animated classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas (which did 4.9 mil and a 1.2). And it tastes just like candy!

Also of note from Wednesday, NBC’s encore of Adele Live in New York City added 3.6 mil and a 1.1 rating to its original, impressive haul, and in finals could adjust up to a 1.2, tying The Mean One for the nightly win.
