TV Ratings: 'Charlie Brown' and 'Survivor' Share Thanksgiving Eve

'Red Band Society' also falls in its penultimate scheduled episode
'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving'

Many series that bothered airing original episodes on Wednesday night saw the inevitable dips that come with the long Thanksgiving weekend — though CBS notched wins across the board with its new episodes.

Survivor, averaging a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49, led the pack — though down three-tenths of a point from last week. Criminal Minds (2.2 adults) and Stalker (1.6 adults) were steady. Top demo honors for the night didn't belong to Survivor alone. ABC's annual airing of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving pulled a 2.1 rating with adults 18-49 as well. That's up 31 percent from last year's Thanksgiving day telecast.

NBC specials The Making of Peter Pan Live! pulled just a 0.6 rating with adults 18-49, and A Saturday Night Live Thanksgiving (1.1) adults shed half of a point from last year's airing.

Hell's Kitchen (1.1 adults) lost four-tenths of a point from last week, while Red Band Society (officially producing just 13 episodes for its soft freshman season) dropped two-tenths of a point in its second to last scheduled airing.
