Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Thurs., April 10) -- another big night for CBS

The Big Bang Theory again exploded for CBS Thursday, leading the network to another strong prime-time performance.

Big Bang led off the night with 404,774 D-FW viewers before CBS’ The Millers carved out a 7:30 p.m. win with 276,951.

At 8 p.m., another CBS sitcom, Two and a Half Men (255,647 viewers), remained strong enough to nip Fox’s American Idol. The second half of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy then knocked off CBS’ The Crazy Ones before CBS returned to the winner’s circle with its 9 p.m. episode of Elementary (276,951 viewers).

CBS also won among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds with Elementary and Big Bang. The victors otherwise were the second half of ABC’s Shark Tank and Grey’s Anatomy.

Over on TNT, the Dallas Mavericks’ deflating loss to their lords and masters, the San Antonio Spurs, averaged 99,418 total viewers.

Here are Thursday’s local news derby results:

CBS11 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m., but Fox4 narrowly prevailed over WFAA8 with 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 and NBC5 tied for first in total viewers at 6 a.m.; Fox4 had the 25-to-54-year-old gold to itself.

CBS11 was No. 1 in total viewers at 6 p.m. while WFAA8 had the most 25-to-54-year-olds.

At 5 p.m., the first four-way tie in memory gave Fox4, NBC5, WFAA8 and CBS11 a share of the top spot in total viewers. WFAA8 broke the logjam with a clear-cut win among 25-to-54-year-olds.
