Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Jan. 13) -- a CBS sweep

The address was CBS Tuesday night, with the network’s tried-and-true crime lineup carrying the freight in D-FW from starting point to finish line.

NCIS set the table with 460,284 viewers before NCIS: New Orleans (397,518) and Person of Interest (237,116) also won their time slots. The threesome likewise prevailed among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds.

At the other end of the ratings teeter totter, ABC’s new Marvel’s Agent Carter continued to crater in the 8 p.m. hour. Losing audience in each 15-minute segment, it barely beat only NBC’s 8 p.m. episode of Marry Me in total viewers and tied the Peacock’s About a Boy with 18-to-49-year-olds.

Agent Carter also was ABC’s least-watched program in both ratings measurements. Inheriting 75,691 viewers in the 18-to-49 demographic from ABC’s Shark Tank, it plunged to 25,230.

NBC’s two-episode return of Parks and Recreation also struggled in the 7 p.m. hour, running last among the Big Four broadcast networks in total viewers and 18-to-49-year-olds.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

Gannett8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. and Fox4 ran first among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again swept the 6 a.m. competitions while Karen Borta fared better on her second day as CBS11’s new early morning co-anchor. CBS11 tied Gannett8 for third in total viewers and ran third outright with 25-to-54-year-olds.

Gannett8 took the total viewers prize at 6 p.m., but Fox4 had the most 25-to-54-year-olds.

At 5 p.m., NBC5 and CBS11 tied for first in total viewers while the Peacock had the top spot to itself with 25-to-54-year-olds.
