Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Jan. 29) -- Fox still on wellness plan with The Resident

Fox’s new medical drama, The Resident, kept the 8 p.m. slot in good health Monday with another win over ABC’s The Bachelor and other lesser knowns.

The Resident also led all prime-time programming in total D-FW viewers (199,419) and in the key, advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic (59,291).

The first half of The Bachelor otherwise won the 7 p.m. hour in both ratings measurements. At 9 p.m., CBS’ Scorpion drew the most total viewers while Fox4’s local newscast ran first with 18-to-49ers.

NBC’s faltering Better Late Than Never, with William Shatner, Henry Winkler, George Foreman and Terry Bradshaw clowning around overseas, ran last at 8 p.m. among the Big Four broadcast networks in both total viewers and among 18-to-49-year-olds. It worked better the first time around as a totally mindless summer diversion.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 won with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 once again dominated the 6 a.m. races but was left out of the money at 6 p.m. NBC5, TEGNA8 and CBS11 tied for the most total viewers at that hour, with the Peacock alone in first among 25-to-54-year-olds.

The 5 p.m. total viewers golds were shared by Fox4 and NBC5. This time it was Fox4’s turn to win outright with 25-to-54-year-olds.
