Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., June 20) -- Rangers beat all in total viewers

Fox Sports Southwest loves Texas Rangers home games. Especially when they’re the first-place Rangers.

Monday night’s seventh straight win -- and fourth consecutive one-run win -- outdrew all programming throughout the day and night with 226,637 D-FW viewers.

The 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles also tied for second overall among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds with NBC’s Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge (79,393 viewers apiece). But it did beat Spartan head-to-head in the 9 p.m. hour. NBC’s two-hour American Ninja Warrior led all programming with 95,271 viewers in the 18-to-49 age range.

CBS’ second episode of BrainDead came up comatose at 9 p.m. with 63,742 total viewers and nearly “hashmarks” (no measurable audience) among 18-to-49-year-olds. In that key demographic, it drew 1,270 viewers in a market of 3.18 million of ‘em. Wow.

The new Fox series Houdini & Doyle fared even worse at 8 p.m. in total viewers (35,412). But 9,527 of them were 18-to-49-year-olds. Still lousy, but a Colossus compared to BrainDead.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 drew the most total viewers at 10 p.m., while Fox4 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and NBC5 did likewise at both 5 and 6 p.m.
