Nearing the end of its latest run, NBC’s summertime ratings hammer, America’s Got Talent, dominated Tuesday’s prime-time proceedings.

AGT drew 288,201 D-FW viewers, with 72,461 of them in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old age range. Fox4’s local newscast then had the most total viewers in the 9 p.m. hour (140,586) while the closing one-third of ABC’s three-hour Bachelor In Paradise won among 18-to-49ers (54,346).

On PBS, the third two-hour chapter of Ken Burns’ Country Music drooped from the Sunday and Monday showings. It averaged 63,264 total viewers in the 7 to 9 p.m. slot.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

WFAA8 and CBS11 shared the 10 p.m. lead in total viewers while Fox4 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

WFAA8 uncommonly swept the 6 a.m. competitions, beating the usual frontrunner, Fox4.

WFAA8 also scored twin wins at 6 p.m., and NBC5 ran the table at 5 p.m.
