Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Nov. 1) -- Game 6 of World Series is a big swing for Fox

The Chicago Cubs scored early and routed the Cleveland Indians Tuesday night in a Game 6 of the World Series that also scored big for Fox.

Running until 10:40 p.m. and forcing a climactic Game 7, the 9-3 Cubs win averaged 428,995 D-FW viewers and 157,148 in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic. A closer game likely would have pushed that average up to a half-million viewers. Wednesday’s finale has a shot at three-quarters of a million or more.

CBS’ 7 p.m. repeat of NCIS scored highest opposite the Series with 283,573 total viewers while NBC’s freshman hit, This Is Us, hung in there with 254,489 viewers in the 8 p.m. hour.

In the 18-to-49 realm, This Is Us was the most-watched show versus the Series with a nice-sized 109,041 viewers.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results for the fourth weekday of the November “sweeps” ratings period.

In a downsized 10 p.m. race, CBS11 drew the most total viewers while NBC5 and TEGNA8 tied for the top spot with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

The 6 a.m. golds again were split between Fox4 in total viewers and NBC5 in the 25-to-54 age range.

At 6 p.m., TEGNA8 won in total viewers and shared first place among 25-to-54-year-olds with NBC5. The Peacock ran the table at 5 p.m.
