WFAA8 uses old parlor trick to "win" at 10 p.m. while Fox4 gets the most uplift from D-FW's May sweeps newscast races

The May "sweeps" ratings period, which ended Wednesday, returned WFAA8 to the 10 p.m. winners circles. But one could easily call a technical foul and say that CBS11 actually won in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds. There's no debating Fox4's wins or impressive improvements, though. The station upped its year-to-year audiences in all four of the major local news competitions. The complete results, including an up-close look at WFAA8's chicanery, are on our Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.
