Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Sept. 18) -- The Voice stays in tune for NBC

Facing ABC and CBS reruns in the final week before the fall season officially starts, NBC's one-hour edition of The Voice easily pulled in Tuesday's biggest D-FW audience.

Its 7 p.m. hour rang up 399,672 viewers before a new 8 p.m. episode of Matthew Perry's Go On also won its time slot with a nice-sized 250,642 viewers.

The Peacock then slid into third place finishes in the Big 4 broadcast universe with first-run editions of the new New Normal (135,482 viewers) and Parenthood (128,708).

But NBC ran the ball all night with advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, sweeping prime-time from start to finish.

Barbara Walters' two-hour ABC countdown of America's favorite TV series in a variety of categories drew 162,578 total viewers but lagged with 18-to-49-year-olds.

The late-starting Texas Rangers game, a 11-3 road loss to the Angels, averaged 176,127 viewers on Fox Sports Southwest.

In Tuesday's local news derby results, WFAA8 ran first at 10 p.m. in total viewers while Fox4 took the top spot among 15-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 and WFAA8 shared the total viewers gold at 6 a.m. It also was a two-way tie with 25-to-54-year-olds, this time between NBC5 and WFAA8.

Fox4 was No. 1 at 5 and 6 p.m. in the 25-to-54 demographic. WFAA8 won at 6 p.m. in total viewers; Fox4 and NBC tied for first at 5 p.m. in that measurement.
