Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Wed., May 15) -- NBC's Chicago trilogy still can't be beat among all viewers

NBC again dominated the prime-time competition Wednesday, sweeping the Nielsens from start to stop in total D-FW viewers with Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD.

Fire ranked as the night’s top scorer with 274,143 viewers.

Advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds were less inclined to go along, with CBS’ first two hours of its latest Survivor season finale winning from 7 to 9 p.m. before Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast topped the field in that hour.

Here are the local news derby results for the 15th weekday of the May “sweeps” ratings period, which concludes next Wednesday.

NBC5 and WFAA8 shared the 10 p.m. lead in total viewers while the Peacock barely won outright among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 had twin wins at 6 a.m.

WFAA8 drew the most total viewers at 6 p.m. and tied Fox4 for first with 25-to-54-year-olds. At 5 p.m., Fox4 and WFAA8 tied for the top spot in total viewers, with Fox4 alone in first among 25-to-54-year-olds.
