Ratings for the Monday night broadcast of "The Year Without a Santa Claus" were disappointing, to put it mildly.
"Deal or No Deal" took in a solid 10.0 rating and a 15 share during the 7 o'clock slot, but the game show's (bizarrely successful) draw didn't help the Jolly One.
More than half the audience ditched NBC when "Without a Santa" took over from 8 to 10 p.m. It earned a piddly 4.7 rating and 7 share.
Ho ho no.
The TV movie was shot in Natchitoches and Shreveport.
Anybody want to share their two cents about why "Without a Santa" missed?
