Tuesday Final Nationals: NBC Music Specials Tops Night’s Original Programming in Total Viewers

CBS and ABC shared Tuesday victory on a lower-watched night as the nation looks forward to the holiday week ahead. Despite airing entirely in reruns, CBS was tops in total viewers. ABC was the leader in all key demos.

Although both specials were older-skewing, “Michael Buble Sings and Swings” and the 2-hour “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90” were prime time’s two most-watched original telecasts in total viewers.
