Fox’s combo of Masterchef and 24: Live Another Day controlled the first two hours of prime-time Monday before CBS’ 48 Hours fought to a split decision with Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast.

Masterchef controlled the 7 p.m. hour with 177,533 D-FW viewers before 24 won at 8 p.m. with 205,938. Both shows also took their time slots among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds.

48 Hours had the most total viewers (205,938) at 9 p.m., but Fox4’s news led at that hour with 18-to-49-year-olds.

The 9 p.m. summer season return of ABC’s Mistresses ran fourth in total viewers with just 78,114 while staying in that position among viewers in the 18-to-49 range.

In Monday’s four-way local news derby results, WFAA8 topped the 10 p.m. field in total viewers while Fox4 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds (the main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and NBC5 had the most total viewers at both 5 and 6 p.m. In the 25-to-54 demographic, Fox4 and the Peacock tied for the top spot at 5 p.m. and WFAA8 won at 6 p.m.
