Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Nov. 30) -- The Voice and Monday Night Football draw biggest crowds while double shot of Superstore does decent business

NBC as usual commanded the 7 to 9 p.m. slot Monday with The Voice before ESPN’s less than stellar Monday Night Football matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns took the last hour of prime-time and beyond.

The Voice drew 389,532 D-FW viewers while also pulling in the most advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds (130,204). Monday Night Football ran an overall second for the night with respective totals of 262,049 and 127,028 viewers.

The Peacock’s sneak preview of its new Superstore comedy series tailed off substantially from The Voice but still had a solid sampling. The 9 to 9:30 p.m. episode had 205,390 viewers to run third behind football and CBS’ first half-hour of NCIS: Los Angeles (219,554 viewers). From 9:30 to 10 p.m., Superstore slipped to 162,895 total viewers, running behind football, NCIS: L.A.’s second half (198,307) and the closing half-hour of Fox4’s local newscast (169,978).

Among 18-to-49-year-olds, though, Superstore beat everything except football, holding steady with 98,447 viewers in each half-hour.

CBS’ 7 p.m. episode of Supergirl also performed well in total viewers with 240,802. Its 18-to-49-year-old audience was 69,865, which pretty much makes it “older-skewing.”

ABC’s triple shot of Christmas specials was paced by an 8 p.m. reprise of A Charlie Brown Christmas, which had 191,225 total viewers and 63,514 in the key 18-to-49 demographic.

Monday’s lowest scoring prime-time attraction among the Big Four broadcast networks was Fox’s 8 p.m. hour of Minority Report. It drew just 56,659 total viewers and 25,406 within the 18-to-49 motherlode.

Here are the local news derby results for the first post-holiday, post-“sweeps” weekday in which all four stations are playing for keeps again.

TEGNA8 and CBS11 tied for first at 10 p.m. in total viewers, but TEGNA8 was alone on top with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again frolicked at 6 a.m., more than doubling the totals of its closest rivals in both ratings measurements.

NBC5 had a very nice time at 5 and 6 p.m. with a pair of doubleheader wins.
