Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Dec. 8) -- NBC/CBS share the wealth

NBC’s The Voice led all prime-time programming Tuesday while CBS tickled the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old audience with its annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The Voice drew 361,202 total D-FW viewers to win the 7 p.m. hour against CBS’ NCIS before NCIS: New Orleans bested NBC’s Chicago Med by a score of 262,049 to 233,719. Both CBS dramas were in reruns.

NBC then bounced back to take the 9 p.m. slot with Chicago Fire (205,390 viewers).

In the key 18-to-49-year-old demographic, NBC won the first two hours of prime-time before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show cashed in the night’s biggest haul with 85,744 viewers.

Fox’s Scream Queens again was Tuesday’s low achiever in both audience measurements. In what likely was the series’ two-hour last gasp, Scream Queens lured 49,517 total viewers and a sub-puny 15,879 in the 18-to-49 realm.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

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

Fox4 rolled as usual at 6 a.m. with another sweep. The 6 p.m. golds went to CBS11 in total viewers and NBC5 in the 25-to-54 demographic.

At 5 p.m., NBC5 won in total viewers and shared first place with TEGNA8 among 25-to-54-year-olds.
