NETWORK FINALS:  As expected, adjustment for MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL simulcasts brought some lowered ratings.  On ABC, both THE GREAT XMAS LIGHT FIGHT (1.1) and the rerun of THE GREAT AMERICAN BAKING SHOW (0.6) fell 0.2, and while NBC’s THE VOICE held its morning 2.2, TIMELESS lost 0.1 for a new low 1.0.
