The long, hot summer continues to wind down while ABC’s America’s Got Talent and CBS’ Big Brother heat up down the home stretch of their final verdicts.

AGT paced all of Wednesday’s prime-time programming in total D-FW viewers by pulling in 220,785 in the 7 p.m. hour. And the competing BB as usual led with advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds (78,015).

Fox4’s local 9 p.m. newscast otherwise again fared well against network entertainment programming. winning from 9 to 10 p.m. in both total viewers (156,686) and among 18-to-49ers (40,568).

And now for Wednesday’s four-way local news derby results.

Fox4 won among total viewers, but got nipped by TEGNA8 in the fight for 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

The 6 a.m. sweep once again went to Fox4 while the 6 p.m. firsts were split between NBC5 in total viewers and TEGNA8 in the 25-to-54 realm.

At 5 p.m., Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the most total viewers, with Fox4 alone on top with 25-to-54-year-olds.
