FOX’s COLLEGE FOOTBALL game, featuring Stanford vs. Notre Dame (1.8) topped ABC’s with Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State (1.4) in preliminary ratings.  CBS preceded 48 HOURS (0.8) with a trio of holiday reruns:  FROSTY THE SNOWMAN at 1.4, FROSTY RETURNS at 1.2, and THE STORY OF SANTA CLAUS at 0.9.  On NBC, a 2-hour DATELINE and a SNL rerun were both at 0.8.

With November sweeps over, FOX is in rerun mode tonight.  Cable features the fall finale of THE WALKING DEAD.
