Both shows aired on ABC, so execs there probably aren't too down about Gaga's defeat. Yet somehow, programs on the other major networks bested both ABC specials: 'Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas' on Fox drew 7.1 million viewers, which means on November 24th, more people saw an annoying animated rodent pull an acorn across a glacier than the 'Born This Way' singer. Even worse, a repeat of 'Big Bang Theory' on CBS -- a repeat! -- scored over 11 million viewers, doubling Gaga's audience. Both CBS and Fox were fortunate to have NFL games as their lead-in, but it's still incredible that a 'BBT' repeat was more popular than Lady Gaga this Thanksgiving, especially when TBS airs old 'Big Bang Theory' episodes almost every day.
If you didn't see 'A Very Gaga Thanksgiving' -- and judging by the ratings, you didn't -- here's "Marry the Night" from the special:
