Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., July 16) -- Fox4, WFAA8 split local news spoils

Absent a potent Texas Rangers game, the summertime prime-time ratings sputtered Monday, with Fox's Hell's Kitchen and ABC's The Bachelorette ranking as top draws with modest totals of 189,675 D-FW viewers each.

Both bowed to CBS11's still rolling Wheel of Fortune, which led all programming with 257,416 viewers in the 6:30 p.m. access slot.

Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, Hell's Kitchen set Monday's pace with 99,271.

The local news derby results were dominated by two stations.

WFAA8 won at 10 p.m. in total viewers while Fox4 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 ran the table at both 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. while WFAA8 did the same at 6 p.m.
