Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Dec. 18) -- The Voice, Monday Night Football are prime-time's pacesetters

Two networks again split the prime-time spoils Monday.

NBC’s The Voice ranked as the top total viewers draw in D-FW, drawing 306,250 from 7 to 9 p.m. The Peacock’s premiere of Ellen’s Game of Games then had enough juice to win the 9 p.m. hour, at least in the Big Four broadcast network universe. It pulled in 199,419 viewers.

ESPN’s Monday Night Football matchup, with the Atlanta Falcons edging the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, reigned throughout the night with advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds, averaging 109,221. Falcons-Bucs also was tops in total viewers from 9 p.m. until closing time, and had a full-game average of 270,640.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while NBC5 reigned with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 as usual swept the 6 a.m. competitions and NBC5 prospered in the early evening with twin wins at both 5 and 6 p.m.
