NBC reigns as D-FW's new "sweeps" king in November newscast results; Cowboys set season ratings highs

NBC5’s local newscasts won six of the eight major November “sweeps” ratings battles, establishing the Peacock as the new station to beat. All of the numbers (which you won’t find anywhere else) are on our Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.

Also, the Dallas Cowboys’ big Thanksgiving Day win over the Washington Redskins set new season highs in the D-FW Nielsens. You can find the details here.

Plus, if you missed it, here’s our earlier post on ace TEGNA8 sports reporter Ted Madden’s decision to leave the station.

NBC5 is all in on weather with "Super S" radar, etc.

There’s no bigger ratings magnet in D-FW, or any TV market, than a big outbreak of severe weather. Fort Worth-based NBC5 intends to be master of this domain for years to come, lately with a new “Super S” radar system. Our story is on the Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.

Also, the weekend local Nielsen ratings “snapshot” details the Dallas Cowboys’ latest big win and audience.

TNT's Good Behavior stars a quite contrary "Lady Mary"

Not far removed from six seasons as Lady Mary Crawley on PBS’ Downton Abbey, Michelle Dockery makes a screeching U-turn in TNT’s Good Behavior, which premieres on Tuesday, Nov. 15th. Our review is here.

Plus, we have a catchup round of D-FW ratings “snapshots” in addition to Monday’s solo flight.

Leaving on a jet plane (but do know when we'll be back again)

A long-planned trip abroad -- nice planning, eh? -- will waylay further postings on unclebarky.com until Monday, Nov. 14th. By then we’ll know full well who won -- unless there’s a repeat of 2000 (nooooooo!). Happy election day, and we’ll see you at the other end.

The Crown: another feather in Netflix cap

The Royals, and not those from Kansas City, get a big, bold drama series in Netflix’s The Crown, which begins streaming all 10 Season One episodes on Friday, Nov. 4th. The reign of Elizabeth II is its focal point, and 63 years later she’s still not done. Our review is here.

Also, Cubs win!!! Cubs win!!! And Wednesday’s D-FW Nielsen ratings responded in a big way while also also putting a big dent in the numbers for ABC’s usually potent Country Music Association awards ceremony. Get all the numbers on our Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.
