Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., July 5) -- Talent, Rangers rise to top

NBC’s America’s Got Talent set the overall prime-time pace Tuesday, but the Texas Rangers won where the bigger ratings revenues are scored.

AGT, again airing from 7 to 9 p.m., led the night in total D-FW viewers with 226,637. The Rangers’ win at Boston on Fox Sports Southwest finished second with an average of 191,225 viewers.

Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, the first-place Rangers prevailed over AGT by a score of 82,568 viewers to 79,393. That makes the FSS sales department very happy. And with the season only halfway completed, the money-making potential looms even larger as long as the Rangers stay on track for a potentially memorable post-season.

Tuesday’s least-watched prime-time attraction, Fox’s 8 p.m. hour of Coupled, had 28,330 total viewers and 12,703 in the 18-to-49 age range. (ABC’s repeats of The Middle and black-ish shared the 18-to-49 bottom rung with Coupled in competition among the Big Four broadcast networks.)

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 rolled at 10 p.m. with wins in both total viewers and among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and NBC5 did likewise at 6 p.m. The 5 p.m. golds went to Fox4 in total viewers and NBC5 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
