President Obama’s final State of the Union address, the Republican response and post-game jabber took up much of prime-time Tuesday night.

Obama’s featured speech began shortly after 8 p.m. and ended at 9:09 p.m. Because Nielsen Media Research measures in 15-minute increments, here are the 8 to 9:15 p.m. D-FW total viewer numbers for the broadcast and cable networks that carried the State of the Union.

CBS -- 120,401
Fox/NBC -- 113,318 each
ABC -- 99,154
Fox News Channel -- 92,071
CNN -- 63,742
MSNBC -- 56,659
PBS -- 21,247

Over on Fox Sports Southwest, the Dallas Mavericks’ tough overtime home loss to the LeBron Cavaliers averaged 106,236 total viewers.

These are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 won at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 kept rolling at 6 a.m. with another sweep while the Peacock ran the table at 5 p.m. and had the most total viewers at 6 p.m. Fox4 edged NBC5 to win at 6 p.m. among 25-to-54-year-olds.
