Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Thursday, March 29) -- bada Big Bang boom

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
Thursday’s prime-time proceedings were led by CBS’ The Big Bang Theory in both major ratings food groups.

The network’s always dependable leadoff hitter drew 356,105 total D-FW viewers, with 96,739 in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old age range.

CBS’ Young Sheldon, Mom and Life In Pieces also won their time slots in total viewers before Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast took the top spot in that hour with 178,053.

ABC had more success with 18-to-49ers, winning in this key demographic with the second half of Grey’s Anatomy, the full hour of the new Grey’s’s spinoff, Station 19 and Scandal. The new NBC sitcom Champions, airing at 8:30 p.m., had “hashmarks” (no measurable audience) among 18-to-49-year-olds. That’s disastrous.

On Fox Sports Southwest, the Texas Rangers’ season opener, a 4-1 defeat at the hands of the visiting world champion Houston Astros, averaged 56,977 total viewers. The game ran from 2:40 to 5:39 p.m. on a picture perfect day.

Here are Thursday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 won in total viewers at 10 p.m. while TEGNA8 had the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 remained invincible at 6 a.m. with another pair of wins and also pounded the network morning shows with the 7 to 9 a.m. portion of Good Day.

Fox4 also swept the 6 p.m. competitions and added a 5 p.m. first with 25-to-54-year-olds. NBC5 drew the most total viewers at 5 p.m.
