Fast national ratings for Monday, Dec. 26, 2011

The day after Christmas brought NBC a bigger audience for the game show "Who's Still Standing?," although its adults 18-49 numbers are still fairly modest. CBS, however, led the broadcast networks on the night with a slate of repeats.

TV Ratings: 'NBC Sunday Night Football' Claims Tuesday Victory

NBC Sunday Night Football didn’t only manage Tuesday victory in both age categories but also racked up the highest ratings on a Tuesday so far this season.

The Minnesota Vikings/Philadelphia Eagles match-up, which has been rescheduled to Tuesday due to a blizzard, averaged 21.54 million viewers and a 7.3 rating/20 share among adults 18-49. But keep in mind: Ratings for sports broadcasts are always approximate.

Second-placed CBS opened the evening with a repeat of NCIS (10.59 million viewers; A18-49: 2.0/6). Next was Kennedy Center Honors at a respectable 9.38 million viewers but a disappointing 1.5/4 in the demo.

Fox placed third in total viewers and adults 18-49 with back-to-back repeats of Glee (4.04 million viewers; A18-49: 1.3/4) while ABC got fourth place airing repeats of Rudolph’s Shiny New Year (3.99 million viewers; A18-49: 1.2/3), No Ordinary Family (3.37 million viewers; A18-49: 0.9/2) and Detroit 1-8-7 (3.46 million viewers; A18-49: 0.8/2).

5 Child-Friendly Things That Were Terrifying as a Kid

  • MoreHorror
by Shannon Hilson

1. Father Time from Rudolph's Shiny New Year

For those of you who do not know, I was... er... kind of weird as a kid. I was worrying about all kinds of bizarre stuff that kids don't worry about. The passage of time was one of those. Not only is this character kind of creepy-looking all by himself, but he's... Father Fucking Time, yo! He's responsible for it all and he must be stopped.

2. The Bunyip from Dot and the Kangaroo

What was this thing... I don't even... All I know is I apparently saw this movie as a child, saw this bunyip thing, and never forgot about it. I won't watch this movie even as an adult, so he must have had a really powerful effect. All I remember is being terrified that the bunyip was going to come kick my ass in the middle of the night and never,
