blacklist ratings dec 2 13 TV ratings: 'The Blacklist' ends 2013 on up note, 'CMA Country Christmas' risesFast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 2, 2013

The last episode of 2013 for “The Blacklist” scored for NBC: Pending updates for an NFL pre-emption in New Orleans, the show delivered its best ratings since its premiere. The final numbers will likely come down a bit, but it should still end the fall on an up note.

“The Voice” also improved a little on its ratings from last week for NBC. ABC’s “CMA Country Christmas” special improved a little on its performance from last year, although “A Charlie Brown Christmas” dropped. CBS’ comedy block was up across the board in viewers, while “Almost Human” dipped a little for FOX.

NBC averaged 12.35 million viewers and a 7.6 rating/12 share in households for the night, pending NFL updates. It should still end up on top for the night, however, as the Peacock finished well ahead of second-place ABC (7.3 million, 4.6/7). CBS (6.9 million, 4.4/7) came in third, and FOX (4.45 million, 2.8/4) took fourth. The CW drew 1.1 million viewers and a 0.7/1.

NBC also dominated the 18-49 demographic with a 3.5 rating. CBS was the best of the rest with a 2.0. ABC finished third at 1.6, followed by FOX, 1.3, and The CW, 0.4.
