Disney kept it in the family Monday night, with two of its properties making prime-time’s biggest splashes.

ABC’s 7 to 9 p.m. edition of Dancing with the Stars had the most D-FW viewers with 327,200. And ESPN’s Monday Night Football matchup in Mexico City between the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans was the top draw among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds with an average of 150,734.

That’s pretty much all she wrote, save for the local news derby results for the 18th weekday of the November “sweeps,” which end on Wednesday.

TEGNA8 both got a welcome boost and a letdown. The station uncommonly won at both 6 and 10 p.m. in total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions, with TEGNA8 falling to fifth place among 25-to-54-year-olds behind Fox4, NBC5, CBS11 and (urp) CW33’s Eye Opener. The CW33 show also beat TEGNA8 and CBS11 in this key demographic during the 5 to 6 a.m. hour, with TEGNA8 again fifth. That’s rather cataclysmic.

At 5 p.m., the firsts were split between Fox4 in total viewers and NBC5 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
