Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., July 10) -- America's Got Talent only getting stronger

Summer’s dominant ratings force flexed even bigger Tuesday night, crushing the competition from 7 to 9 p.m.

NBC’s America’s Got Talent drew 334,739 D-FW viewers and also cruised to victory among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds with 99,859. The closest competitors in those hours were CBS’ 7 p.m. rerun of NCIS in total viewers (135,320) and Fox’s new 7 p.m. hour of Beat Shazam in the 18-to-49 realm (37,447).

At 9 p.m., the Peacock’s World of Dance had enough juice to win the hour in total viewers (163,808). But Fox4’s local newscast easily took the top spot at 9 p.m. among 18-to-49ers (49,930).

The CW’s 8 p.m. premiere of The Outpost, starring a Wonder Woman-esque heroine, drew just 21,366 total viewers and had “hashmarks” (no measurable audience) in the 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

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

Fox4 once again swept the 6 a.m. competitions. At 6 p.m., TEGNA8 won in total viewers and Fox4 with 25-to-54-year-olds.

NBC5 and TEGNA8 split the 5 p.m. golds in total viewers while Fox4 and TEGNA8 tied for first at that hour in the 25-to-54 measurement.

Local TV news note: Former Fox4 and later CBS11 reporter Stephanie Lucero has joined NBC5, where she’s currently working in the station’s consumer response center.
