Second verse, same as the first. In the hot summertime, Tuesdays and Wednesdays respectively belong to NBC’s America’s Got Talent and CBS’ Big Brother.

Airing in the 7 p.m. hour, Wednesday’s edition of Big Brother led all prime-time programming in both total D-FW viewers (156,686) and among advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds (68,653).

And Tuesday’s prime-time parade again was headed by AGT, which drew 313,372 total viewers and 71,734 within the 18-to-49 realm.

Wednesday’s premiere of The CW’s Burden of Truth, a sturdy serial drama imported from Canada, had 28,488 total viewers from 7 to 8 p.m., with a sub-miniscule 1,560 in the 18-to-49 age range.

Here are the Tuesday and Wednesday local news derby results.

Tuesday -- Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the most total viewers at 10 p.m., but Fox4 easily won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again ran the table at 6 a.m. and TEGNA8 did the same at 6 p.m. NBC5 had twin wins at 5 p.m.

Wednesday -- Fox4 swept the 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. competitions while adding 5 and 6 p.m. wins in the 25-to-54-year-old demographic. NBC5 drew the most total viewers at 5 and 6 p.m.
