NBC rode its regular prime-time lineup to a wall-to-wall ratings win in total viewers before hitting a few bumps among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds.

The Voice ranked as Wednesday night’s biggest overall draw with 334,752 D-FW viewers before the Peacock’s Law & Order: SVU (271,986) and Chicago P.D. (258,038) likewise won their time slots.

The Voice also prevailed with 18-to-49-year-olds, leading the 7 p.m. hour with 75,691 viewers in this key demographic. ABC’s Modern Family then took over with 107,229 viewers before the second half of SVU edged ABC’s black-ish by a score of 88,306 to 85,153 viewers.

Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast rose up to win that hour with 81,999 viewers in the 18-to-49 realm while Chicago P.D. ran a close second with 78,845.

Gratifyingly, viewers are getting weary of CBS’ new Stalker, which had a strong start but now is withering. Its latest episode ran fourth at 9 p.m. in both total viewers and with 18-to-49-year-olds.

Here are the local news derby results for the 10th weekday of the 20-weekday November “sweeps” ratings period.

Gannett8 stayed strong at 10 p.m. with wins in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 cruised to another pair of 6 a.m. wins and added a 5 p.m. sweep.

At 6 p.m., Fox4 and CBS11 tied for the most total viewers but Fox4 had the top spot to itself with 25-to-54-year-olds.
