Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Nov. 19) -- Rams-Chiefs rule

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
As expected, pinball football took charge of the Monday night ratings from start to finish.

The Los Angeles Rams’ 54-51 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football ran all the way to 11 p.m. thanks to a combination of non-stop offense (plus occasional defense) and flag-happy refs who constantly stopped the clock. Excluding the recent Dallas Cowboys game, MNF emerged with a D-FW season high of 435,817 total viewers and 163,037 within the advertiser-prized 18-to-49 age range.

The next closest competing attraction, Fox’s 8 p.m. episode of 9-1-1, had 217,908 total viewers and 69,442 within the 18-to-49 realm.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results, with just two weekdays remaining in the November ratings “sweeps” period.

CBS11 won in total viewers at 10 p.m. and remained in very strong position to pull off an upset in this measurement. Fox4 drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again swept the 6 a.m. competitions and NBC5 did likewise at 5 p.m. The 6 p.m. golds went to CBS11 in total viewers and Fox4 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
