Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Thurs., Nov. 3) -- Big Bang paces a slow night

Thursday’s prime-time viewing levels were on the down low after Game 7 of the World Series gave Fox a big high.

CBS’ 7 p.m. episode of The Big Bang Theory as usual led all TV attractions, but with a smallish 356,284 D-FW viewers and 112,249 in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old age range. The network’s new The Great Indoors then dipped to 152,693 total viewers, falling behind the second half of ABC’s competing Grey’s Anatomy (174,506). But Great Indoors nipped Grey’s among 18-to-49-year-olds even though it fell to 60,935 viewers in this key demographic.

NBC’s Chicago Med won the 8 p.m. hour in total viewers (181,778) and 18-to-49-year-olds (just 44,899 of ‘em). Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast then mopped up with time slot wins in both ratings measurements -- 167,235 total viewers and 57,728 in the 18-to-49 realm.

CBS’ new medical drama, Pure Genius, ran third at 9 p.m. in total viewers (116,338) and fell to last place among the Big Four broadcast networks in the 18-to-49 demographic (28,864).

Here are Thursday’s local news derby results for the sixth weekday of the November ratings “sweeps.”

NBC5 was tops in total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 dominated the 6 a.m. competitions in both measurements and NBC5 ran the table with comfy twin wins at 5 and 6 p.m.
