People still haven’t tired of The People’s Choice Awards.

The annual two-hour CBS telecast reaped the most D-FW viewers Wednesday night, with 241,444 tuning in from 8 to 10 p.m.

That helped to blunt NBC’s 9 p.m. premiere of Chicago P.D.. Spun off from Chicago Fire, it drew 170,431 viewers to run third behind the second hour of People’s Choice and Fox4’s local newscast.

Chicago P.D. also took the bronze at 9 p.m. among advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds.

In Wednesday’s local news derby results, CBS11 nipped NBC5 for the most total viewers at 9 p.m. while Fox4 ran first among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 added a 6 a.m. win in total viewers but was beaten by NBC5 in the 25-to-54 measurement.

NBC5 also had the most total viewers at both 5 and 6 p.m. Fox4 took the golds at those hours among 25-to-54-year-olds.
