Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Oct. 2) -- CBS again is top cop

CBS remains a crime show powerhouse, never more so than on Tuesday nights.

The network’s prime-time lineup of NCIS, FBI and NCIS: New Orleans controlled the 7 to 10 p.m. hours in total D-FW viewers and even got a 9 p.m. win with advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds.

NCIS as usual led the way with 358,494 total viewers before FBI (288,201) and NCIS: NO (253,055) won their hours. The latter series also led at 9 p.m. among 18-to-49ers with 39,250, besting the second episode of NBC’s competing New Amsterdam (36,230).

The Peacock’s one-hour edition of The Voice drew the most 18-to-49-year-olds in the 7 p.m. hour with 51,326 before NBC’s This Is Us had Tuesday night’s biggest haul in this key demographic (69,442).

ABC punted at 9 p.m. with a repeat of the new drama series A Million Little Things, which easily ranked as prime-time’s 18-to-49-year-old bottom-feeder with 6,038 viewers. It also drew the smallest number of total viewers (49,205), helping to torpedo TEGNA8’s following 10 p.m. local newscast in the process.

Speaking of that, here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 won in total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 ran first among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 once again swept the 6 a.m. competitions while NBC5 remained strong in the early evening hours by running the table at both 5 and 6 p.m.
