NETWORK FINALS:  Both MONDAY  NIGHT FOOTBALL cities showed the game on ABC stations, which is why the network’s numbers plunged after adjustment:  HAPPY NEW YEAR, CHARLIE BROWN down 0.4, RUDOLPH’S SHINY NEW YEAR down 0.6, and THE GREAT AMERICAN BAKING SHOW down 0.6.  Elsewhere, the KEVIN CAN WAIT rerun lost 0.1 but the SCORPION rerun rose 0.1 in final numbers.
