Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Wed., Nov. 13) -- CBS cleans up

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
Wednesday’s prime-time hours again belonged to CBS, with the network’s Survivor: Blood and Water, Criminal Minds and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation encountering just one minor bump in the road.

Survivor won at 7 p.m. in total D-FW viewers (241,442) before Criminal Minds (312,457) and CSI (276,951) likewise controlled the 8 to 10 p.m. terrain.

Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, only ABC’s 8 p.m. episode of Modern Family poked through with a narrow win over the first half-hour of Criminal Minds. Otherwise it was all CBS, although CSI barely outdrew Fox4 9 p.m. local newscast in this key demographic.

In Wednesday’s four-way local news derby numbers, CBS11 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while WFAA8 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 continued to dominate at 6 a.m. by again running the table; the station added 5 and 6 p.m. wins in the 25-to-54 measurement.

The total viewers golds at 5 and 6 p.m. respectively went to NBC5 and CBS11.
