Thursday ratings: Repeats give CBS the night

Repeats on ABC and Fox, and a “Gilly”-hosted SNL Christmas special on NBC, gave CBS an easy win last night. Bones held up surprisingly well in repeats, keeping around 70 percent of its typical audience, while ABC’s medical dramas fared far worse the second time around.
