Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., June 13) -- NBC stays in charge

Prime-time Tuesdays belong to NBC this summer, as the Peacock has proven again.

The 7 to 9 p.m. edition of America’s Got Talent ruled in total D-FW viewers (334,471) and advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds (86,592) before World of Dance likewise swept the 9 p.m. hour with 196,320 viewers overall and 64,142 in the 18-to-49 realm.

The Texas Rangers’ fifth straight win, on the road versus the Houston Astros, averaged 130,880 total viewers on Fox Sports Southwest, with the first two hours of the game trailing CBS’ rerun combo of NCIS and Bull. ABC’s new episode of Downward Dog managed a scrappy second-place finish from 7 to 7:30 p.m. in the 18-to-49 motherlode, trailing only AGT.

And now for Tuesday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 beat TEGNA8 by a paper-thin margin at 10 p.m. in total viewers but lost to the ABC station among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming) despite a massive lead-in advantage from the last 15 minutes of World of Dance.

The Peacock had a much better time of it in the early evening, sweeping both the 5 and 6 p.m. competitions. Fox4 notched twin wins at 6 a.m.
