Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast ranked highest in total viewers during Monday’s prime-time face-offs while NBC’s American Ninja Warrior lured the most advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds in the D-FW Nielsens.

Add ABC’s The Bachelorette, which won from 7 to 9 p.m. in total viewers with 167,376 before Fox4’s news took the 9 p.m. hour with 174,350.

Ninja Warrior ruled from 7 to 9 p.m. among 18-to-49-year-olds, drawing 78,875. Fox4’s news and NBC’s The Island with Bear Grylls tied in that measurement at 9 p.m. with 50,461 apiece.

Local ratings for Fox Sports 1’s U.S. World Cup women’s soccer match between the U.S. and Colombia were not immediately available. Although carried on a still relatively obscure network, it’s possible that soccer may have won in prime-time among total viewers.

Fox’s two-hour So You Think You Can Dance ranked as prime-time’s lowest 7 to 9 p.m. scorer in total viewers among the Big Four broadcast networks. It limped in with just 104,461 but beat CBS’ Scorpion repeat during the 8 p.m. hour in the 18-to-49 demographic.

Here are Monday’s four-way local news derby results.

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

The other main battlegrounds were also sweeps. Fox4 ran the table at 6 a.m., NBC5 had twin wins at 5 p.m. and Gannett8 took both golds at 6 p.m.
