Ratings Reviews: 2016 Christmas Specials


It is once again time for the annual ratings review on all the holiday specials the five broadcast networks ran between Thanksgiving and Christmas. There were nearly sixty programs this year, with most of the great classics, with a couple of new comers, are at or near the top of the chart. Most specials did have multiple airings, but rarely did the encore do as well as the initial broadcast.
