Pentatonix may be amazing, musically, but the a cappella group simply does not have the audience that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen do. Or at least, they didn’t last night.

NBC’s “Pentatonix: A Not So Silent Night” special averaged a 0.7 rating and 3.4 million total viewers. On Nov. 28, NBC’s “A Legendary Christmas With John and Chrissy” had a 0.8 rating and 4.4 million viewers. Both specials aired at 10 p.m. The latter followed NBC’s Christmas Tree Lighting, while last night’s special aired after “The Voice.”
