Only NBC got left out in the cold in Thursday’s prime-time ratings while rival broadcasters ABC, CBS and Fox each took trips to the winner’s circle.

CBS’ 7 to 8:30 p.m. lineup of The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and Mom ranked No. 1 in total D-FW viewers before the closing half-hour of Fox’s The Four: Battle for Stardom won in that measurement from 8:30 to 9 p.m. Fox4’s local newscast then took the 9 p.m. hour.

Big Bang as usual was the night’s top draw in total viewers with 384,626.

In the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old age range, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy won the 7 p.m. hour before The Four and Fox4’s news rolled in this key demographic from 8 to 10 p.m. Grey’s pulled in the night’s biggest haul of 18-to-49ers -- 112,342.

The 8:30 p.m. sneak preview of NBC’s A.P. Bio ran fourth in its time slot in total viewers with 99,709. It moved up to a third-place tie with CBS’ Life In Pieces among 18-to-49-year-olds, with each sitcom drawing 37,447 viewers.

And now for Thursday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 won in total viewers at 10 p.m., and Fox4 had the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 remained virtually unbeatable at 6 a.m. with another pair of dominating wins while also sweeping the 5 p.m. competitions.

The 6 p.m. firsts went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and Fox4 in the 25-to-54 realm.
