NBC’s two-hour hunk of America’s Got Talent dominated Tuesday’s prime-time numbers while helping the network’s following Maya & Marty comedy-variety hour to also perform decently.

AGT drew 325,790 D-FW viewers and also had the most advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds (88,920). M&M dropped off sharply but still had enough ratings juice to run second at 9 p.m. in total viewers (134,566) behind CBS’ competing Person of Interest (155,813) while winning its time slot among the Big Four broadcast networks in the key 18-to-49 demographic (34,933 viewers).

ABC’s pair of Uncle Buck episodes tied for second from 8 to 9 p.m. in total viewers and had the runner-up slot to itself among 18-to-49-year-olds. From 9 to 10 p.m., ABC’s two editions of its rebooted To Tell the Truth fell to fourth place in both ratings measurements.

On Fox Sports Southwest, the first-place Texas Rangers fell behind early and had their seven-game winning streak snapped by the visiting Cincinnati Reds, who won 8-2. Rangers-Reds averaged 155,813 total viewers and 57,163 in the 18-to-49 age range. Overall, that made the game Tuesday’s No. 2 prime-time attraction behind AGT.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 ranked No. 1 at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and also ran the table at 5 p.m. NBC5 then scored with twin wins at 6 p.m.
