But its lead-in, Garth Brooks’ and Trisha Yearwood’s live holiday concert, brought some Christmas joy
Good tidings, NBC, bad tidings Giants fans: The final “Sunday Night Football” game before Christmas, in which the Cleveland Browns pretty much dashed New York’s playoff hopes, easily topped primetime last night. CBS got off to a nice start with its own NFL overrun and “60 Minutes,” but settled down quite a bit by the time its holiday specials aired.
Still, Garth Brooks’ and Trisha Yearwood’s live holiday concert entertained a decent-sized audience. But the 22nd annual “Home for the Holidays” special at 10 p.m. settled for a rough 0.2 rating among adults 18-49.
