Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Nov. 26) -- scoring with Texans vs. Titans

Monday Night Football again outscored all competing prime-time programming, even though it wasn’t much of a game.

The Houston Texans stretched their winning streak to eight by pummeling the visiting Tennessee Titans. A total of 281,172 D-FW viewers partook, including 78,499 viewers in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old age range.

In the Big Four broadcast network universe, NBC’s latest two-hour dose of The Voice led with 231,967 total viewers, followed closely by Fox’s competing 9-1-1 (217,908). Fox4’s local newscast then won the 9 p.m. hour with 182,762 viewers, edging CBS’ competing repeat of Bull (175,733).

Among 18-to-49ers, Fox4’s news and The Voice shared the Big Four lead with 45,288 viewers each.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results on the first day of post-November “sweeps” combat.

CBS11 and Fox4 did the splits at 10 p.m., with CBS11 drawing the most total viewers and Fox4 winning with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 resumed its longtime winning ways at 6 a.m. with another sweep and also had the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 5 and 6 p.m. NBC5 drew the most total viewers for both early evening newscasts.

These results exactly mirrored the final finishes for the November ratings “sweeps,” which ended on Thanksgiving eve. TEGNA8 went winless while its three competitors all enjoyed at least one victory.
