Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Feb. 26) -- CBS crime hours top prime-time tote board

CBS ruled the overall prime-time ratings Tuesday with new episodes of its crime-time trifecta.

NCIS led off with a night’s best of 323,348 D-FW viewers, followed by FBI (295,231) and NCIS: New Orleans (231,967).

As usual, it was a different story among advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds. The winners in that key demographic were NBC’s The Voice (48,307 viewers), the first hour of the Peacock’s World of Dance (42,269) and Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast (45,288).

Here are the local news derby results for the second-to-last weekday of the February “sweeps” ratings period.

WFAA8 won at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and added 5 and 6 p.m. firsts among 25-to-54-year-olds.

WFAA8 drew the most total viewers at 6 p.m. while NBC5 did likewise at 5 p.m.
