Ratings: Barbara Walters' Picks Prove To Be 29% Less Fascinating

Barbara Walters’ presentation of the year’s Most Fascinating People this Thursday drew 6.2 million total viewers and a 1.0 demo rating, down 19 and 29 percent from the 2014 edition (which aired on a Sunday after a fresh Once Upon a Time).

Elsewhere in the ratings….

CBS | Pending adjustment due to NFL preemptions (in Tampa and St. Louis), The Big Bang Theory (17.4 mil/4.1) and Life in Pieces (11.2 mil/2.5) are currently eyeing best-since-premiere numbers, while Mom (9.6 mil/2.0), 2 Broke Girls (7.3 mil/1.7) and Elementary (6.4 mil/1.2) are looking at season highs.

NBC | Leading out of Christmas special reruns, President Obama’s hang with Running Wild With Bear Grylls did 3.5 mil and a 0.9, up 25 percent in audience but down a tenth in the demo from the series’ most recent outing (which led out of Ninja Warrior).

THE CW| This year’s Jingle Ball special (1.2 mil/0.4) dropped 33 percent.
