Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Jan. 22) -- This Is Us paces prime-time parade

There’s still some life left, although NBC’s This Is Us is no longer Tuesday night’s dominant life form.

A new 8 p.m. episode still did well enough to lead all prime-time programming in both total viewers (224,938) and with advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds (69,442).

CBS’ 9 p.m. hour of NCIS: Los Angeles ranked a close second in total viewers (217,908) while NBC’s Ellen’s Game of Games took the silver among 18-to-49ers with 63,403.

Also of note: CBS’ 6:30 p.m. edition of Wheel of Fortune led all programming for the entire day with 309,289 total viewers. Oldsters Pat and Vanna also bludgeoned the competing three entertainment rag mags in the 18-to-49 demographic. TEGNA8 coughed up Wheel in 2005 because it supposedly skewed too old. CBS11 has been profiting ever since.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 won at 10 p.m. in total viewers while TEGNA8 drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 once again ran the table at 6 a.m. and also had the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 5 and 6 p.m.

NBC5 ranked No. 1 in total viewers at 5 p.m. and TEGNA8 won in that measurement at 6 p.m.
