Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Oct. 14) -- NBC again takes full charge

The Peacock continued to strut Monday after rolling up the usual big numbers for Sunday Night Football both locally and nationally.

NBC’s lineup of The Voice drew a commanding 482,884 D-FW viewers from 7 to 9 p.m. before the network’s The Blacklist mopped up with 312,457.

Both NBC attractions also routed the Big Four 4 broadcast network competition among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds. Fox’s 8 p.m. episode of the already renewed Sleepy Hollow drew the third most 18-to-49-year-olds Monday night, save for Monday Night Football on ESPN. The Chargers-Colts matchup ended up beating everything from 9 to 10 p.m. in both audience measurements but couldn’t outdraw The Voice.

CBS remained in a rare ratings depression on Monday nights, with its 8:30 to 10 p.m. pairing of newcomers Mom and Hostages running fifth in total viewers and 18-to-49-year-olds behind NBC, ABC, Fox/Fox4 and ESPN.

On TXA21, the Dallas Mavericks’ pre-season matchup against the Orlando Mavericks drew 42,608 total viewers.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 and WFAA8 tied for the 10 p.m. lead in total viewers, with WFAA8 alone on top among 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 ran the table at 6 a.m. while WFAA8 did likewise at 5 p.m. In the 6 p.m. face-offs, WFAA8 and CBS11 tied for the most viewers but WFAA8 again ran first in the 25-to-54 demographic.
