CBS’ latest season finale of The Big Bang Theory topped all Thursday programming as usual before the Texas Rangers came alive and won prime-time’s closing hour.

BB drew 334,471 D-FW viewers and also paced all TV attractions in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old age range with 102,627. A 7:30 p.m., a BB repeat won its time slot in total viewers (225,404) but was beaten by the second half-hour of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy among 18-to-49ers (67,349).

CBS’ Mom took the 8 to 8:30 p.m. slot in total viewers (218,133) before the network’s Life In Pieces fell to second place behind the closing half of NBC’s Chicago Med (189,049). But Life In Pieces won its slot with 18-to-49-year-olds while Mom was runner-up to the first half-hour of ABC’s Scandal.

The Texas Rangers’ walk off home win against San Diego, capped by Mike Napoli’s three-run homer, rose up to take the 9 p.m. hour in total viewers (174,506) while also nipping CBS’ The Amazing Race for the top spot with 18-to-49-year-olds (38,485).

Here are Thursday’s local news derby results for the 11th weekday of the May ratings “sweeps.”

TEGNA8 drew the most total viewers at 10 p.m. but Fox4 was narrowly No. 1 among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 racked up another pair of 6 a.m. wins and TEGNA8 likewise swept the 6 p.m. competitions.

The 5 p.m. golds went to NBC5 in total viewers and Fox4 in the 25-to-54 realm.
