Continuing its summertime hot streak, Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast easily topped Sunday’s prime-time field while a pair of ABC’s game shows also fared well in total D-FW viewers.

The news drew 210,879 viewers, trampolining off puny audiences from the Fox network’s 7 to 9 p.m. attractions. CBS prospered at 6 p.m. with a time slot-leading 147,615 viewers before the network’s Big Brother tailed off sharply to 49,205 viewers.

The 7 to 9 p.m. hours were won by ABC’s Celebrity Family Feud (154,645 viewers) and $100,000 Pyramid (147,615).

In the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic, Fox4’s news again scored biggest with 66,422 viewers. The 6 to 9 p.m. hours respectively were won by ABC’s America’s Funniest Videos, NBC’s U.S. track and field championships and $100,000 Pyramid.

On Friday night, Fox4’s 9 p.m. news again led all programming in total viewers with 98,410 while Fox’s 7 p.m. repeat of First Responders Live led among 18-to-49ers (27,173).

Here are Friday’s four-way local news derby results.

WFAA8 won at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept both the 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. competitions. The 6 p.m. golds went to WFAA8 in total viewers and Fox4 among 25-to-54-year-olds.
