Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Wed., Sept. 11) -- AGT and Fox4's 9 p.m. news take the prime-time golds

Wednesday’s results edition of NBC’s America’s Got Talent replicated Tuesday’s down-the-stretch performance show by topping all prime-time programming in total viewers.

AGT weighed in with 253,055 D-FW viewers, with Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast again the night’s runner-up with 168,703. But the news won by a comfy margin with advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, drawing 66,422 to AGT’s second place 51,326.

Here are Wednesday’s four-way local news derby results.

Fox4 swept the 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. competitions in both total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming). Reflecting the turbulent nature of this summer’s early morning ratings, CBS11 popped up to a solid second place among 25-to-54-year-olds while Tuesday’s winner, WFAA8, fell to third.

NBC5 ran first at 6 p.m. in total viewers and Fox4 took the 25-to-54-year-old gold.

At 5 p.m., Fox4, NBC5 and WFAA8 tied for the lead in total viewers, but Fox4 again had the 25-to-54 spoils to itself.
