Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Sept. 11) -- ABC/NBC split the "reality-competition" spoils

NBC’s America’s Got Talent as usual set Tuesday’s prime-time pace in total viewers, but ABC’s competing Bachelor In Paradise seduced the most advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds.

AGT’s 270,640 was down from recent weeks, but still good enough. The second- and third-place finishers were CBS’ NCIS repeat (199,419 viewers) and Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast (185,175).

Among 18-to-49ers, Bachelor In Paradise drew 53,050 to hold off runner-up AGT (46,809). Fox4’s 9 p.m. news again took the bronze with 34,317 viewers in this key demographic.

Here are Tuesday’s four-way local news derby results.

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

Fox4 once again swept the 6 a.m. competitions, and hasn’t lost a single day in either measurement since Good Friday, March 30th, when TEGNA8 won by a sliver among 25-to-54-year-olds. Yes, that’s unprecedented.

The 6 p.m. wins went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and Fox4 among 25-to-54-year-olds. At 5 p.m. NBC5 and TEGNA8 tied for the top spot in total viewers while Fox4 and NBC5 shared the 25-to-54-year-old lead.
