Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Aug. 15) -- NBC crunches all but one

NBC’s America’s Got Talent again ruled two-thirds of the prime-time landscape Tuesday before the Peacock’s Hollywood Game Night almost finished the deal.

AGT averaged a league-leading 334,471 D-FW viewers in the 7 to 9 p.m. slot while also ranking as the night’s top draw with advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds (86,592).

Game Night then topped the 9 p.m. field with 174,506 total viewers but was edged by Fox4’s competing local newscast in the 18-to-49 realm (51,314 viewers to 44,899).

Sent to Fox Sports 1 rather than their usual Fox Sports Southwest home, the lately resurgent Texas Rangers’ home win over Detroit averaged 116,338 total viewers. Texas remains in the wild card race while Joey Gallo continues to deliver big bops in pursuit of the American League home run crown. He now has 34 in a hot August for him while slumping Aaron Judge (did he screw up his swing in the All-Star game’s home run derby?) is now just two ahead of Gallo.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 drew the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 and NBC5 shared the lead among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

It was another split decision at 6 a.m., with Fox4 tops in total viewers but the Peacock winning in the 25-to-54 demographic.

NBC5 recorded Tuesday’s only sweep with twin wins at 6 p.m. Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the most total viewers at 5 p.m. while Fox4 narrowly had first place to itself in the 25-to-54 mix.
