[via press release from NBC]

Wednesday Primetime Results:

NBC won Wednesday night among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49, the network's fourth consecutive nightly win (Dec. 1-4), paced last night by the top-rated "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" in seven years and a "Saturday Night Live Christmas" special that hit a 10-week slot high for NBC.

· From 8-9 p.m. ET, "Christmas In Rockefeller Center" (2.3/7 in 18-49, 9.9 million viewers overall) grew versus last year by 10% in adults 18-49 (to a 2.3 rating from a 2.1), to achieve the annual special's top rating since 2006 (2.6). Versus two years ago, "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" is up 21% (2.3 vs. 1.9). It's the fourth year in a row the special has maintained or increased its year-ago 18-49 rating.
