Ratings: Victoria’s Secret, Rudolph Specials Win Big for CBS

The annual parade of sexy women in sexy Victoria's Secret lingerie won the final hour of Tuesday's prime time for CBS. Hard to believe! It also posted its largest demo rating ever in the nine years that it's aired. On a more wholesome note, Rudolph with his nose so bright and his venerable TV special (with Burl Ives' narration) led off a night that the network easily won in both viewership and 18-to-49-year-olds. But it was a rerun of NCIS — the current season's No. 1 show after 10 weeks — that snared the night's most viewers.

Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life do not qualify for this list.Honorable mention: Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town (1970).Major points for Fred Astaire, the Winter Warlock, Burgermeister MeisterBurger and "Put One Foot in Front of the Other," which almost made the list. Almost.5) Frosty the Snowman (1969)Happy birthday! Yes, it's fu... read more
