Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Feb. 22) -- X-Files finale hardly a phenomenon

Fox’s six-episode “event” arc of The X-Files came to an end Monday night with nothing resolved and yet another cliffhanger in play. Snore.

Airing from 7 to 8 p.m., the sagging adventures of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully drew 198,307 D-FW viewers to run third in that hour behind ABC’s first half of The Bachelor (240,802) and CBS’ Supergirl (212,472).

X-Files moved up to second among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, drawing 66,690 while The Bachelor had 104,798.

CBS’ Scorpion and NCIS: Los Angeles won from 8 to 10 p.m. in total viewers with respective hauls of 269,131 and 233,719.

In the 18-to-49-year-old demographic, The Bachelor remained on top from 8 to 9 p.m. (85,744) before NBC’s latest season finale of The Biggest Loser ran first in the 9 p.m. hour with 66,690. NCIS: Los Angeles fell from first in total viewers to fourth with 18-to-49-year-olds.

Here are the local news derby results for the 13th weekday of the February “sweeps” ratings period.

CBS11 topped the 10 p.m. Nielsen in total viewers while NBC5 had the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again notched twin wins at 6 a.m. and TEGNA8 ran the table at 6 p.m. The 5 p.m. golds went to NBC5 in total viewers and TEGNA8 among 25-to-54-year-olds.
