Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., June 25) -- The Bachelorette packs some punch

Picking up a little steam as the summer gets steamier, ABC’s two-hour Monday edition of The Bachelorette smelled like a rose in both major ratings barometers.

It paced all prime-time programming in D-FW with 163,808 total viewers and 68,653 in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

CBS’ competing 8 p.m. Season Two premiere of Salvation managed a second place finish at that hour in total viewers (92,587) but plunged to last place among the Big Four broadcast networks with just 9,362 viewers in the key 18-to-49 age range.

Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast won the 9 p.m. hour in total viewers (156,686), but ABC’s The Proposal lured the most 18-to-49ers (43,688).

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 took the 10 p.m. golds in both total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 cruised to another 6 a.m. sweep and added 5 and 6 p.m. wins with 25-to-54-year-olds. TEGNA8 drew the most total viewers at both 5 and 6 p.m.
