Family-friendly shows doing well for NBC


Family-friendly programming is doing well this holiday season for NBC, which has a rare three-week winning streak in the television ratings.

The Dolly Parton movie “Coat of Many Colors” reached more than 13 million viewers. That landed the program in the Nielsen company’s weekly top 10 last week and exceeded the viewership for the live production of “The Wiz” earlier this month. Preliminary ratings show that NBC did well Monday night with the Adele concert special.

Michael Buble’s “Christmas in Hollywood” on NBC was the week’s top-ranked holiday program. “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” on CBS was seen by 6.6 million viewers, Nielsen said.
