Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Oct. 30) -- four-way split

CBS ran the prime-time table Tuesday in total D-FW viewers, but its three major broadcast network rivals all entered the winner’s circle among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds.

NCIS as usual ranked as the overall top draw with 337,406 total viewers before CBS’ FBI (260,084) and NCIS: New Orleans (217,908) both won their time slots.

Among 18-to-49ers, ABC’s 7 to 8 p.m. comedy combo of The Conners (45,288) and The Kids Are Alright (48,307) won that hour before NBC’s This Is Us ran first at 8 p.m. (57,365) and Fox4’s local newscast took the 9 to 10 p.m. slot with 54,346 viewers.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results for the fourth weekday of the November ratings “sweeps.”

CBS11 won at 10 p.m. in total viewers while TEGNA8 drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

It was otherwise a series of sweeps, with Fox4 scoring twin wins at 6 a.m., NBC5 running the table at 5 p.m. and CBS11 uncommonly ruling at 6 p.m. in both ratings measurements.
