CBS again made crime pay in a big way during Tuesday’s prime-time ratings wars.

NCIS as usual amassed the most total D-FW viewers, drawing 379,582 in the 7 p.m. hour before the network’s FBI (309,289) and NCIS: New Orleans (246,026) also controlled their time slots.

Among advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds, NBC’s The Voice won the 7 p.m. hour with 42,269 and the Peacock’s This Is Us took the top spot from 8 to 9 p.m. (51,326), holding off the solidly performing FBI (48,307).

At 9 p.m., Fox4’s local newscast prevailed with 37,438 viewers in the 18-to-49 realm, edging ABC’s competing The Rookie (35,023).

Here are the local news derby results for the 14th weekday of the November “sweeps” ratings period, which runs through next Wednesday.

TEGNA8 and CBS11 tied for the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 won outright with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and NBC5 did likewise at 6 p.m. The Peacock was tops with total viewers at 5 p.m. and tied Fox4 for the lead among 25-to-54-year-olds.
