Thursday TV Ratings 12/2/21: Annie Live! Solid for NBC, Alec Baldwin Interview Performs Modestly, Young Sheldon and Ghosts Dip, Great Christmas Light Fight Ends on a Low (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Though the incident made worldwide headlines at the time, ABC's unscripted Alec Baldwin interview (0.45) only came in at a modest 4th place in the 8pm timeslot. Whether as a result of the tepid lead-in or not, 'The Great Christmas Light Fight' (0.26, -0.11) dropped by more than a full tenth for its finale. NBC had far more to write home about as the musical 'Annie Live!' (0.92) more than doubled the Baldwin interview and was the top non-sports broadcast of the evening. On the football front, Fox's 'Cowboys v. Saints' NFL game (4.77) was more than a full point above the one from two weeks prior (3.72). Though CBS's 'Ghosts' (0.55) matched its last outing, comedies 'Young Sheldon' (0.64, -0.09), 'United States of Al' (0.46, -0.03), and 'B Positive' (0.41, -0.04) all forfeited a few hundredths. 'Bull' (0.34, +0.03) actually managed to rise by three-hundredths in the 10pm hour. The CW's 'Walker' (0.12, +0.02) picked up two-hundredths while 'Legacies' (0.08, -0.01) gave back a hundredth. 

Finals Update: 'NFL: Cowboys v. Saints' (+1.8), 'Alec Baldwin Unscripted' (+0.1), 'United States of Al' (+0.1) and 'Ghosts' (+0.1) adjusted up.
