Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., June 17) -- NBC commands prime-time

Absent the NBA or Stanley Cup Finals, NBC won from start to stop in Tuesday’s prime-time Nielsens.

The Peacock’s two-hour America’s Got Talent turned in its strongest D-FW number of the summer with 284,052 viewers. That made it Tuesday’s most-watched program in day or night.

NBC’s Night Shift then had 127,823 viewers in the 9 p.m. hour, just enough to slip past Fox4’s competing local newscast (120,722 viewers). AGT and Night Shift also won their time slots among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds. In each case the victory margins were far more comfortable.

CW33’s anchor-less 9 p.m. newscast, NewsFix, ranked at the bottom of the ratings teeter totter with “hashmarks” (no measurable audience) in both ratings measurements.

The Texas Rangers, working the late shift in Oakland, averaged 78,114 viewers in a 10-6 loss. Yu Darvish, who’s generally worth a ratings bump, had one of his worst starts of the season.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 also swept the 6 a.m. competitions and added 5 and 6 p.m. wins with 25-to-54-year-olds.

The total viewer golds at 5 and 6 p.m. respectively went to NBC5 and CBS11.
