Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., June 10) -- Peacock preens

NBC continues to enjoy a balmy ratings summer -- even though it’s not quite summer yet.

Its latest two-hour edition of The Voice romped from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday with 330,442 D-FW viewers, again squashing ABC’s runner-up The Bachelorette (144,568 viewers in the same time slot). The Voice also sung an aria among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds.

A sneak preview of the Peacock’s latest singing competition -- The Winner Is -- then won at 9 p.m. in total viewers with 144,568. And it ran a close second to ABC’s Mistresses in the key 18-to-49 demographic.

At the other end of the teeter-totter, Fox continued to wail the summertime blues. It ran fourth across the board among the Big Four broadcast networks, with its most-watched attraction, an 8:30 p.m. episode of Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management import from FX, drawing just 34,421 total viewers. Fox4’s local 9 p.m. newscast then more than doubled that audience -- to 75,726 viewers -- but still ran fourth in that measurement while tying CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 repeat for third with 18-to-49-year-olds.

In the cable universe, the Texas Rangers’ home win against Cleveland had a nice-sized 185,873 total viewers on Fox Sports Southwest. TNT’s Season 2 launch of Major Crimes, followed by the premiere of King & Maxwell, respectively pulled in 137,684 and 82,610 viewers.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results, with just two stations splitting all the golds:

WFAA8 ran first at 6 and 10 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 again ran the table at 6 a.m. and also swept the 5 p.m. competitions.
