Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Sept. 7) -- Talent pulls another big number while swooning Rangers are a tune-out

Nearing another denouement, NBC's America's Got Talent dominated Wednesday's prime-time ratings with 305,384 D-FW viewers in the 8 to 10 p.m. slot.

Summer's most popular attraction also called the tune among advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds.

Meanwhile on Fox Sports Southwest, the Texas Rangers' fifth straight road loss drew a comparatively paltry 115,367 viewers. The North Texas 9 still has a 7-game lead on second place Oakland. But a pitching meltdown and concurrent hitting slump seem to have cooled viewers on the team's post-season prospects -- should they get there. At any rate, it's become painful to watch of late. And many lately are choosing to look away after the Rangers were the hottest viewing choice in town -- save for the Cowboys -- in recent weeks.

In local news derby results, NBC5 racked up 10 p.m. wins in total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming on most stations.

Fox4 countered with a pair of 6 a.m. wins while the early evening competitions were split. At 6 p.m., NBC5 won in total viewers but CBS11 had the edge with 25-to-54-year-olds. The 5 p.m. golds went to WFAA8 in total viewers and NBC5 in the 25-to-54 measurement.
