Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Dec. 6) -- split decisions between CBS reruns, Fox new ones

CBS' regularly scheduled Tuesday night crime spree topped all prime-time competitors, with repeats of NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles and Unforgettable all winning their time slots in total viewers.

NCIS as usual had the most D-FW viewers, in this case 318,383.

Fox scored where the bread is buttered, though, winning from 7 to 9 p.m. among advertiser-favored 18-to-49-year-olds with new episodes of Glee, New Girl and Raising Hope. New Girl again led all programming in this key demographic, with 118,485 viewers in the 18-to-49 age range.

The second hour of NBC's The Biggest Loser won from 9 to 10 p.m. with 18-to-49-year-olds. But the Peacock's Michael Buble Christmas special ran fourth in the 7 p.m. hour among 18-to-49-year-olds and beat only ABC's lame duck Man Up! in total viewers.

In local news derby results, the 10 p.m. firsts were split between WFAA8 in total viewers and Fox4 with 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

For the third straight weekday, Fox4 also won at 6 a.m. and 5 and 6 p.m. among 25-to-54-year-olds. The station added a 5 p.m. gold in total viewers while CBS11 entered the winner's circle with the most viewers at 6 p.m.
