Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Thurs., Nov. 29) -- address again is CBS

Led as always by The Big Bang Theory, CBS topped Thursday's prime-time Nielsens from start to finish in total D-FW viewers.

Big Bang led off with 426,820 viewers, more than doubling the audience for Fox's runner-up The X Factor (192,758 viewers for its first half-hour).

Two and a Half Men, Person of Interest and Elementary also put CBS comfortably in the winner's circle.

Big Bang and Two and a Half Men also won among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds before the 8 to 10 p.m. slot went to ABC's Grey's Anatomy and Scandal in the competition among the Big Four broadcast networks.

Over on cable's NFL Network, the Falcons' win over the Saints averaged 178,989 viewers, with 102,061 of them in the 18-to-49-year-old vortex. The 8 to 10 p.m. portion of the game ranked No. 1 among all networks in the key 18-to-49 demographic.

In Thursday's local news derby results, CBS11 ran first at 10 p.m. in total viewers while WFAA8 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds (the main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 stayed strong at 6 a.m. with twin wins and NBC5 swept the 5 p.m. competitions. The 6 p.m. spoils went to CBS11 in total viewers and WFAA8 among 25-to-54-year-olds.
