Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., June 19) -- AGT puts some punch back in prime-time

After a little-watched Monday, D-FW’s prime-time ratings bounced back Tuesday via the sheer force of NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

The latest two-hour edition of summer’s biggest hit easily ranked as the night’s No. 1 draw with 306,250 viewers and 65,533 within the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic. The Peacock’s World of Dance then took the 9 p.m. hour with 180,901 total viewers and 59,219 in the 18-to-49 realm.

ABC’s 9 p.m. entry, the second episode of The Last Defense, continued to lag despite the true crime doc’s focus on whether to reopen the case of Darlie Routier, the Rowlett mother who in 1997 was sentenced to death row for the in-home murder of her two young sons. Last Defense ran fourth in total viewers at 9 p.m. with 85,465 and inched up to third in the 18-to-49 demographic with 18,724 viewers.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 took the top spot in total viewers at 10 p.m., but NBC5 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 chalked up two more wins at 6 a.m., won with 25-to-54-year-olds at 6 p.m. and tied TEGNA8 for first place in total viewers at that hour. The 5 p.m. golds went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and NBC5 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
