A pair of unscripted Fox series and Fox4’s local 9 p.m. news swept Wednesday’s prime-time ratings among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds and won all but the 8 p.m. hour in total D-FW viewers.

The 7 to 9 p.m. winners with 18-to-49-year-olds were Masterchef and Bullseye before the news took over. Masterchef had the biggest haul with 91,460 viewers in this key demographic.

Masterchef also drew the night’s most total viewers (223,168), with Fox4’s local news a close second (209,220). CBS topped the 8 p.m. hour with a Criminal Minds rerun (139,480).

Here are Wednesday’s four-way local news derby results.

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

NBC5 dominated at 5 p.m., with an unusually big grab of 271,986 total viewers that buried its three opponents.

The 6 p.m. golds went to the Peacock in total viewers and Fox4 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
