Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., May 8) -- DWTS nips The Voice

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
On most Mondays, NBC’s The Voice both out-shouts and outdraws the semi-celebrity hoofers on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

Not this time. DWTS fox-trotted past The Voice by a half-step in D-FW’s total viewers Nielsens, winning by a 247,217 to 239,946 score.

It otherwise was business as usual among advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds, with The Voice luring 76,970 to DWTS’s 35,278.

The closing 9 p.m. hour of prime-time was won by CBS’ Scorpion in total viewers (203,591) and NBC’s The Wall in the 18-to-49 motherlode (57,728).

The struggling Texas Rangers, who dropped another late night road game, this time at San Diego, continued to languish on Fox Sports Southwest with 79,982 total viewers and 16,036 in the 18-to-49 realm.

Here are the local news derby results for the eighth weekday of the May ratings “sweeps.”

CBS11 edged NBC5 for the top spot in total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 had twin wins at 6 a.m. and TEGNA8 ran the table at 6 p.m.

Fox4 and TEGNA8 tied for the most total viewers at 5 p.m., with Fox4 alone on top with 25-to-54-year-olds.
