NBC’s Chicago Med ranked No. 1 in total D-FW viewers Wednesday night while Fox’s Empire and ABC’s Modern Family shared the first place spoils among advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds.

Specifically, Med led with 189,791 viewers overall, and Empire/Modern Family drew 51,326 apiece in the 18-to-49 realm.

Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast also fared well, winning its time slot in both ratings measurements. And although drawing more total viewers than any other prime-time attraction, Med needs an IV among 18-to-49ers, beating only ABC’s The Goldbergs during the 7 to to 8 p.m. hour.

Here are the local news derby results at the midway point of the 20-weekday November “ratings” sweeps.

Fox4 swept the 10 p.m. competitions in total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

The station again also scored twin wins at 6 a.m. while the 7 to 10 a.m. portion of its Good Day likewise continued to pound bumps on rival stations in both ratings measurements.

NBC5 ran the table at 5 p.m. and also ranked first in total viewers at 6 p.m. Fox4 drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 6 p.m.
