Broadcasting & Cable
Tribune Broadcasting said WPIX(TV) New York’s Yule Log, which returned Christmas Day after a 12-year absence, was local TV's top-rated program from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. The station reported Nielsen Media Research numbers of 3.1/10 for the two-hour video of a log burning brightly in a fireplace, accompanied by Christmas carols.
The log was a regular feature from 1966 through 1989.
