Fox and Fox4 ruled the prime-time terrain Wednesday with a triple header of Lethal Weapon, Star and the 9 p.m. local newscast.

Weapon led all programming in total D-FW viewers (269,031) while Star was tops with advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds (99,420). Fox4’s 9 p.m. news capped the night with twin wins while both Weapon and Star likewise won across the board.

The night’s biggest loser among the Big Four broadcast networks, ABC’s 9 p.m. hour of Match Game, sunk to 65,440 total viewers and 16,036 in the 18-to-49 realm after the network’s preceding black-ish drew twice the number of viewers in both ratings measurements.

Here are Wednesday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 had a big day, sweeping the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. competitions in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming). But Fox4 maintained its 6 a.m. stronghold with twin wins while the 7 to 9 a.m. portion of its Good Day also outdrew all three competing network morning shows in total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds.
