Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Oct. 29) -- NBC vs. ABC, with rivals in reruns

NBC and ABC sent their usual Monday night big guns head to head while CBS opted for sitcom repeats and a Hurricane Sandy special and Fox threw in a two-hour reprise of The X Factor following a short order World Series.

NBC's The Voice edged ABC's Dancing with the Stars in D-FW by a score of 337,326 viewers to 316,673. ABC then rebounded with a 9 p.m. win in another close battle. Castle had 254,715 viewers to Revolution's 240,947.

NBC ran the prime-time table, though, among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds. On that front, The Voice as usual made a wallflower of DWTS, winning in this key demographic by 169,038 viewers to 63,788.

Over on ESPN, the 49ers' mashing of Arizona averaged 240,947 viewers on Monday Night Football.

In local news derby results, WFAA8 won at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 likewise swept the 6 a.m. competitions. WFAA8 had three of the other four golds, with two wins at 6 p.m. and a 5 p.m. first among 25-to-54-year-olds. NBC5 nipped Fox4 at 5 p.m. in total viewers.
