Fox and Telemundo scored big Wednesday afternoon with the extended World Cup semi-final match between Croatia and England.

Croatia’s comeback 2-1 win in “extra time” loomed largest on Fox, averaging 199,419 D-FW viewers while Spanish language Telemundo chipped in with 92,587 for a combined total of 292,006.

Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, Fox had 81,136 viewers and Telemundo, 40,568. Hand calculator technology says that’s a grand total of 121,704. Croatia will now play France Sunday for the title.

In prime-time, CBS’ Big Brother reigned as usual, with 163,808 total viewers and 74,894 within the 18-to-49 realm. But those were smallish audiences compared to soccer.

Here are Wednesday’s local news derby results.

Fox4 won at 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. in both total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

The 6 p.m. firsts went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and Fox4 among 25-to-54-year-olds.

At 5 p.m., NBC5 drew the most total viewers and CBS11 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds.
