CBS went with wall-to-wall NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans repeats Tuesday night, opening the door for NBC’s The Voice and Fox4’s 9 p.m. local news to win their respective time slots.

The Voice drew 262,049 D-FW viewers from 7 to 9 p.m. while also ranking as prime-time’s biggest draw among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds (76,217). Fox4’s news then took over with 191,225 total viewers and 60,338 in the 18-to-49 age range.

NBC’s 9 p.m. premiere of Game of Silence had 162,895 total viewers to run third at that hour behind Fox4 and CBS’ NCIS: New Orleans rerun (169,978). But Silence spoke a bit louder to 18-to-49-year-olds, running second with 44,460.

The Texas Rangers’ late night road win at Seattle drew 120,401 total viewers on Fox Sports Southwest.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 ran first in total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

For the first time in several months, Fox4 ended up sharing the 6 a.m. lead in both ratings measurements with NBC5.

The Peacock swept the 5 p.m. races and tied for the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 6 p.m. with TEGNA8. But TEGNA8 had the 6 p.m. gold to itself in total viewers.
