Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Jan. 30) -- nice night for The Bachelor

Smelling like a rose again in the D-FW ratings, ABC’s The Bachelor led all prime-time programming Monday in both total viewers and advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds.

The total viewers haul was 167,235, with 70,556 in the 18-to-49 realm. Those are by no means blockbuster numbers, but wins are wins.

Fox4s local newscast then won the 9 p.m. hour in total viewers (152,693) while ABC’s competing Quantico led with 18-to-49-year-olds (48,107).

NBC’s latest two-hour dose of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Celebrity Apprentice again was a loss leader among the Big Four broadcast networks. It outdrew only Fox’s 7 p.m. episode of Gotham in total viewers while trailing everything except CBS’ 7:30 p.m. repeat of Kevin Can Wait in the 18-to-49 demographic.

Here are Monday’s local news derby numbers.

TEGNA8 won in total viewers at 10 p.m. and CBS11 had the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the top spot in total viewers at 6 a.m., but the Peacock had first place to itself with 25-to-54-year-olds.

NBC5 swept the 6 p.m. competitions and added a 5 p.m. win in the 25-to-54 measurement. Fox4 drew the most total viewers at 5 p.m.
