Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., March 20) -- The Voice & Fox4's local news are top prime-time scorers

NBC’s The Voice led off with dominant ratings Tuesday night before Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast finished off the prime-time hours with another strong showing.

A total of 334,739 total D-FW viewers tuned to The Voice at 7 p.m. while CBS’ competing NCIS ran second in that hour with 185,175 viewers. The Voice also won among advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds with 68,653.

At 8 p.m., another NCIS repeat won with 213,663 total viewers. But ABC’s black-ish drew the most 18-to-49-year-olds from 8 to 8:30 p.m. (40,568) and Fox’s The Mick took the 8:30 to 9 p.m. slot (34,327).

Fox4’s local news then swept the 9 p.m. hour with 227,907 total viewers and 71,774 in the 18-to-49 age range. That made the newscast Tuesday’s top draw in this key demographic.

ABC’s second episode of For the People drew little interest from the people. It bombed with just 56,977 total viewers and 6,241 in the 18-to-49 realm.

And now for Tuesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 impressively overcame ABC’s lousy For the People lead-in to win at 10 p.m. in total viewers while NBC5 pulled in the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again ran the table at 6 a.m., also swept the 6 p.m. competitions and had the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 5 p.m. NBC5 drew the most total viewers at 5 p.m.
