NBC’s 7 p.m. premiere of Little Big Shots: Forever Young, in which ancient mariners stand on their heads and stuff, led a sluggish prime-time Wednesday in total D-FW viewers.

LBS:FY lured 145,422 viewers to edge Fox Sports Southwest’s Texas Rangers-Toronto Blue Jays game (123,609). Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, Fox’s Masterchef led with just 35,278 viewers.

The ratings returns were much stronger Tuesday night, with NBC again on top in both key measurements with its “reality competition” combo of America’s Got Talent and World of Dance.

AGT amassed 261,760 total viewers and 102,627 in the 18-to-49 age range before World of Dance mopped up with respective totals of 167,235 and 76,970 viewers.

Monday’s prime-time parade was topped by ABC’s two-hour edition of The Bachelorette, which had 167,235 total viewers and 67,349 within the 18-to-49 motherlode.

Here are the Monday-Wednesday local news derby results.

Monday -- TEGNA8 won at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming) while Fox4 did likewise at 6 a.m.

NBC5 and TEGNA8 tied for first at 6 p.m. in total viewers, but the Peacock was alone on top with 25-to-54-year-olds. At 5 p.m., the golds went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and Fox4 among 25-to-54-year-olds.

Tuesday -- TEGNA8 again swept the 10 p.m. competitions, as did Fox4 at 6 a.m.

NBC5 led in total viewers at 5 and 6 p.m. while Fox4 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds at both hours.

Wednesday -- TEGNA8 stayed hot at 10 p.m. with another sweep while also tying Fox4 for the total viewers lead at 6 a.m. Fox4, NBC5 and TEGNA8 tied for the 6 a.m. gold among 25-to-54-year-olds.
