Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., June 24) -- NCIS rerun is top prime-time draw

Sometimes the D-FW ratings are uneventful at best. Even though summertime programming is hardly wall-to-wall reruns anymore.

Still, CBS’ 7 p.m. repeat of NCISAmerica’s Got Talent took the 8 p.m. hour with 177,533 viewers. Fox4’s local newscast then reigned at 9 p.m. with 205,938 viewers while CW33’s competing anchor-less NewsFix registered “hashmarks” (no measurable audience).

Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, Talent was a dominant No. 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. and Fox4’s news won with ease at 9 p.m.

Over on Fox Sports Southwest, the Texas Rangers’ sixth straight loss, at home to the Tigers, averaged 120,722 total viewers.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 ran first at 10 p.m. in total viewers, but NBC5 won among 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 took the 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. competitions in both ratings measurements. CBS11 had the most total viewers at 6 p.m.; WFAA8 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds at that hour.
