Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Wed., April 3) -- everybody's a winner, except for ABC once again

NBC’s first two hours of its Chicago trilogy, Med and Fire, won the 7 to 9 p.m. hours Wednesday before Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast nipped the competing Chicago PD.

Fire led all programming in total D-FW viewers with 253,055.

Among advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds, CBS’ Survivor won the 7 p.m. hour with 48,307 before Fox’s Star (54,345) and Fox4’s news (a night’s high 84,538) reigned from 8 to 10 p.m.

This again left ABC on empty in prime-time. In fact, for the third straight weekday, the network’s World News Tonight drew more viewers than any of ABC’s prime-time offerings.

A new episode of LeBron James’ Million Dollar Mile played deader than his Los Angeles Lakers. Airing in the 8 p.m. hour on CBS, it lured just 70,293 total viewers and a sub-puny 10,567 in the 18-to-49 realm.

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

Fox4 had a big day, sweeping the 6 a.m., 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. competitions in both total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

NBC5 kept Fox4 from a very rare double grand slam by topping the 6 p.m. field in total viewers while Fox4 won among 25-to-54-year-olds.
