Charlie Brown vs. Rudolph: Here’s Who Won This Year’s Battle of the Classic Christmas Specials — Ratings Watch

Charlie Brown vs. Rudolph: Here’s Who Won This Year’s Battle of the Classic Christmas Specials — Ratings Watch
Good grief! Christmas specials are in full swing, and the networks dusted off some of their biggest classics last week: ABC’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and CBS’ “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” In their inaugural 2017 runs, “Rudolph” (2.1 among adults 18-49) edged out “Charlie Brown” (1.8), giving a ratings edge to the reindeer with a very shiny nose.

“Rudolph,” which premiered in 1964, and “Charlie Brown,” which first bowed in 1965, are considered the key staples in a sea of primetime holiday specials, some of which have come and gone over the years. But both specials were overshadowed this year by a newcomer: “DreamWorks Trolls Holiday,” which averaged a 2.4 rating when it aired on Nov. 24, during the Thanksgiving weekend.

But there are plenty of caveats to all of this, since none of the specials actually faced off in the same time slot. “A Charlie Brown Christmas” performed respectably considering it aired in a tough Thursday 8 p.

‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Score, ‘The Voice’ & ‘Good Doctor’ Unchanged

At this stage in the current ratings-challenged NFL season, tossing around the term "game-changer" may seem no more than a Hail Mary pass. However, with Sunday Night Football rising this week again and now Monday Night Football up double digits from last week's season low, things are certainly looking brighter for the league in Week 13. As The Great Christmas Light Fight (1.1/4) shined just as bright as it did last year on ABC and The Voice (1.9/7) topped the Big 4 for NBC…

Hallmark’s Cheesy Christmas Movies Are Already Dominating Cable This Holiday Season — Ratings Watch

Hallmark’s Cheesy Christmas Movies Are Already Dominating Cable This Holiday Season — Ratings Watch
Christmas + romance + cute puppies = A recipe for ratings success at Hallmark. The network known for its sappy made-for-tv movies hit it big over the Thanksgiving weekend with five nights of ratings gifts — making for its biggest week in network history. Among total viewers in cable, only “The Walking Dead” (and its companion “Talking Dead”) and NFL football did better than Hallmark’s Friday, Saturday, and Sunday movies.

The film “Switched for Christmas,” starring Candace Cameron Bure as identical twin sisters who swap lives for the holiday, became the most-watched telecast in Hallmark Channel history on Sunday night. The film averaged 5.8 million viewers after three days of DVR and video on demand usage. Mark Deklin, Eion Bailey, and Happy the Dog — see, it ticked all the Hallmark boxes — also starred.

Close behind, Saturday’s “Hallmark Hall of Fame” presentation, “The Christmas Train,” averaged 5.6 million viewers — beating the four broadcast networks on the night.

Kylo Ren, Rey and Porgs Take Over Empire's Last Jedi Covers

Kylo Ren, Rey and Porgs Take Over Empire's Last Jedi Covers
As the countdown continues towards Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with just over 16 days to go, Empire Magazine has debuted their brand new subscribers covers today, which tease both the light and dark side of Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). The dynamic between the light and dark sides of both these characters has been the subject of much debate, but if these four covers weren't enough, there is also the subscriber's exclusive cover that features the beloved Porgs, who some fans just can't seem to get enough of.

The Last Jedi trailer that debuted in October, during halftime of Monday Night Football, ended with Rey saying she needs help to find her place in the galaxy, with the final shot featuring Kylo Ren's extended hand. This sets up a much different dynamic than has previously been rumored, where Rey abandons her training with Luke Skywalker to save

Khloe Kardashian Reveals Her Sweet Game Day Ritual for Tristan Thompson

Khloe Kardashian Reveals Her Sweet Game Day Ritual for Tristan Thompson
Khloe Kardashian is all about the power of prayer.

On Tuesday, the 33-year-old reality star revealed on her app the sweet gesture she does for boyfriend Tristan Thompson before every Cleveland Cavaliers game. Khloe says she prays that the 26-year-old NBA star doesn't get injured.

"I don't really believe in rituals, but there is one thing that I do before every Cleveland Cavaliers game," she explains. "Right after the national anthem, I say a prayer asking God for Tristan's protection on the court. It probably looks like I'm talking to myself, Lol, but I don't care -- I don't want my baby getting hurt!"

Never one to be shy about giving out relationship advice, Khloe -- who's pregnant with her first child, a baby boy, with Thompson -- also gave out tips on her app on how to tell if your partner is "the one."

‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Hit Season Low As Ravens Peck Texans

It took the Baltimore Ravens awhile to get in the game against the Houston Texans last night on Monday Night Football, but in the end they grinded out a 23-16 victory, keeping the Super Bowl Xlvii champs on track for their first playoff appearance in three years. However, now 12 weeks into the controversial season, it was only a dark victory for Espn and the NFL that one might detect in Edgar Allan Poe's “The Raven” poem. With a 6.0 in metered market results, last night's…

‘The Orville’ Is This Fall’s Biggest New Show, At Least According to One Measurement — Ratings Watch

‘The Orville’ Is This Fall’s Biggest New Show, At Least According to One Measurement — Ratings Watch
The critics didn’t care much for “The Orville,” but apparently viewers do. Seven weeks into the new season, Seth MacFarlane’s space odyssey is one of the most time-shifted series in all of television, as its audience more than doubles after seven days of DVR and video-on-demand usage.

So far this season, “The Orville” leads all freshman series when it comes to viewership lift percentage. In Live+7 ratings, “The Orville’s” season-long average jumps 110 percent among adults 18-49 — from a 1.0 rating to a 2.1 rating. The only broadcast shows that do better are both returning series: “How To Get Away With Murder” (+133 percent) and “Designated Survivor” (+122 percent).

The Orville” adds another 1.1 rating points to its overall average when time-shifted viewing is included. Among new series, that puts it behind the fall’s two breakout hits: “The Good Doctor” (+2.1 ratings points) and “Young Sheldon” (+1.3 ratings points), as well as tied with another new Fox series,

‘The Voice’ Ratings Fall To Monday Low, ‘Supergirl’ Steady + NFL Inflations

A very close Monday Night Football match-up between the winning Atlanta Falcons and the Seattle Seahawks up on Espn took the night overall, but among the Big 4 it was a victory for ABC – for now. Tops in fast affiliates among both adults 18-49 and overall viewers with a 1.6/6 rating and 10.35 million watching, the Disney-owned net saw the first night of the Dancing With the Stars (1.5/5) season finale and The Good Doctor (1.9/7) even with the early numbers of November 13…

‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Up As Falcons Beat Seahawks In Close Game

Certainly there seemed to be a big difference between Monday Night Football and Sunday Night Football this week, with a blowout game on the latter and a dramatic and tight matchup on the former. In the end, the Atlanta Falcons flew high over the Emerald City with a 34-31 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Mnf. A last-minute 52-yard field goal by Seattle's Blair Walsh went wrong to seal the 2013 Super Bowl champs’ second straight loss. The Falcons’ second consecutive victory…

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch
It turns out there’s enough to go around ratings-wise on Thursday night. NBC has taken hold of the Thursday Night Football package, which it shares with CBS (both of whom simulcast with NFL Network), and its fortunes on the night have grown substantially. Now with two nights of NFL, plus staples like “This Is Us” and “The Voice,” NBC easily won the week ending November 12 in adults 18-49, and scored its first total viewers victory of the season.

But on Thursday nights, ABC and CBS also have reason to crow in the 8 p.m. hour: “Grey’s Anatomy,” which just hit its 300th episode, remains a potent force. And “Young Sheldon” is developing into a new hit behind “The Big Bang Theory.” (Also in the hour, Fox’s “Gotham” and The CW’s “Supernatural” also perform relatively respectably, although not nearly at the same level).

New Last Jedi Footage Has Leia and Poe Ready to Blow Stuff Up

New Last Jedi Footage Has Leia and Poe Ready to Blow Stuff Up
With exactly one month left until Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters, LucasFilm has unveiled four new TV spots which feature a few new bits of footage. While it seems unlikely that we'll get another full Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, following the second trailer that debuted during Monday Night Football last month, Disney and LucasFilm may likely be releasing more TV spots like this, offering just tiny tidbits of new footage to whet fans' ravenous appetite for any and all things Star Wars. Hopefully these four spots will be the first of many to debut within the next month.

The first TV spot, entitled "Fight," features new footage of Rey (Daisy Ridley) engaged in her training, but at first, she's using her trusty staff that she used in The Force Awakens, before seeing the lightsaber in a satchel, which leads her to start training with that instead,

‘Man With A Plan’ Ratings Match Low In Return, ‘Voice’ & ‘Good Doctor’ Top Demo

As the only debut and real addition to the night, Matt Lablanc's Man With A Plan (1.0/4) was back Monday with its Season 2 premiere as The Voice (1.9/7) and The Good Doctor (1.9/7) were dead even for the demo top spot. On a night that saw Monday Night Football near a season low on Espn, both the NBC competition series and the new ABC drama were matching not just each other but the fast affiliates for their last episodes in the key adults 18-49. The same could not be said…

Ratings: ‘Man With a Plan’ Premiere Has No Blueprint Against ‘DWTS,’ ‘The Voice’
Matt LeBlanc’s “Man With a Plan” returned last night to CBS. Based on its Nielsen numbers, the sitcom may need a better plan. CBS settled for fourth place in the key 18-49 demographic last night, when ABC leapfrogged NBC to finish first outright. They Disney-owned broadcaster was preempted in the Miami and Charlotte markets for “Monday Night Football,” however, so the network’s primetime averages are subject to some extra adjustment, which could shake up the evening’s demo podium. “The Voice,” “The Good Doctor” and “Dancing With the Stars” were the big players between 8 p.m. and 11 p.

‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Near Season Low As Panthers Thrash Dolphins

Once again three of the Miami Dolphins took a knee during the playing of the national anthem and once again the Florida NFL team came up short in primetime. As Michael Thomas, Kenny Stills and Julius Thomas protested in Charlotte, N.C., last night's Monday Night Football felt a bit like a repeat of the November 5 Sunday Night Football game when the Dolphins lost to the Oakland Raiders 27-24. However, unlike that match-up on NBC, Monday's gridiron battle on Espn was a much…

Jordin Sparks Secretly Marries Dana Isaiah, Announces She's Pregnant With First Child!

Jordin Sparks Secretly Marries Dana Isaiah, Announces She's Pregnant With First Child!
And a baby makes three!

Jordin Sparks dropped some major bombshells on Tuesday, revealing that she secretly married her boyfriend, Dana Isaiah, in July and that the two are expecting their first child next spring. "She is deliriously happy," Sparks' rep told Et.

The 27-year-old American Idol alum first broke the news to People magazine, and couldn’t help but gush about her pregnancy. “We’re both really excited," she told the publication. "[Dana]’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!’ We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”

The private couple managed to keep their nuptials a secret even when they attended their first red carpet event together in August. Though they don’t mind making the occasional appearance on each other’s social media accounts, they have avoided publicly wearing wedding rings -- or the accessories went unnoticed.
