Summertime -- and the viewing is cheesy.

Although it dominated as usual Tuesday among total D-FW viewers, NBC’s America’s Got Talent got gonged by ABC’s competing Bachelor In Paradise among advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds.

BIP drew 74,894 of ‘em from 7 to 9 p.m. while AGT took the silver with 68,653. In total viewers, though, it was no contest. AGT had 313,372 compared to BIP’s 121,076. CBS’ NCIS and Bull repeats also beat BIP from 7 to 9 p.m. in total viewers.

In the 9 p.m. hour, Fox4’s local newscast won in both total viewers (178,053) and with 18-to-49ers (46,809).

Monday’s prime-time Nielsens were paced by Fox4’s 9 p.m. news in total viewers (199,419) while NBC’s two-hour American Ninja Warrior took the 18-to-49 crown with 56,171.

Here are the Monday and Tuesday local news derby results.

Monday -- Two stations scooped up all the spoils. Fox4 won at 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. in total viewers and among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming). NBC5 swept both the 5 and 6 p.m. competitions.

Tuesday -- Same story. Fox4 ran the table at 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. while the Peacock had doubleheader wins at both 5 and 6 p.m.
