It was a night of winter finales on CBS, while most networks opted for specials or reruns. Here’s a look at the Monday TV ratings for Dec. 16.

Christmas is almost here, which means TV shows are starting to go on their breaks. While some of the fall finales happened at the start of the month, some shows still have episodes this week. How did those new episodes do in the Monday TV ratings for Dec. 16?

It shouldn’t be that surprising to hear that the majority of shows with new episodes staw ticks up. CBS had a full night of winter finales, starting with The Neighborhood and ending with Bull. Every single show was up in both the demo and the audience.
