Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Sept.18) -- easy does it for AGT

NBC’s America’s Got Talent had its latest season-ending performance show Tuesday night, and nothing else could touch it.

Airing in its usual 7 to 9 p.m. slot, AGT pulled in prime-time’s biggest hauls in both total D-FW viewers (320,495) and in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic (74,894). That’s an old “skew” in terms of younger viewers, but still an easy winner.

Fox4’s local 9 p.m. newscast then took over, winning the hour with 192,297 total viewers and 43,688 in the 18-to-49 age range.

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

Fox4 had a big day and night with sweeps of the 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. competitions in both total viewers (barely ahead of CBS11) and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 also drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds at both 5 and 6 p.m. while NBC5 won among total viewers at those hours. The 6 p.m. race in total viewers was a tight one, with all four stations bunched together.
