‘A Christmas Story Live’ Delivers Horrible Ratings to Fox

Bah humbug: Fox’s “A Christmas Story Live!” just got blindsided by NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” in early TV ratings. Oh, and every other broadcast TV show beat it as well.

The latest live television musical managed a 2.8 overnight rating/5 share in the 56 metered-markets monitored by Nielsen. Compare that with NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” which posted a massive 12.3/21 last night. To be fair, that latter live telecast had the Dallas Cowboys.

Plus, football is still football and no one expected “A Christmas Story” to compete — it certainly could have done much better than it did, however. ABC’s “Sound of Music” (no, not the live one from NBC that started this whole trend) telecast posted a 3.0/5 on Sunday. Even all of the CBS shows beat this “Christmas Story.”
