Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Fri.-Sun, June 1-3) -- still a Rangers world

The Rangers' numbers are still up, despite losing two out of three road games against the arch rival Angels over the weekend.

Two of the three games were the most-watched TV attractions in D-FW, with each cracking the 200,000 viewers barrier.

Friday's Rangers-Angels faceoff on TXA 21 had 237,094 viewers, with CBS11's Wheel of Fortune coming in second (162,578 viewers).

Saturday's game averaged 243,868 viewers on Fox Sports Southwest, beating TNT's Game 4 of the Spurs-Thunder Western Conference finals (182,901 viewers).

Sunday afternoon's finale -- the only game Texas won -- drew 264,190 viewers on FSS, falling short of the crowd for that night's overtime Game 4 of the Boston-Miami Eastern Conference finals on ESPN (298,070 viewers).

Sunday night's Game of Thrones Season 2 finale on HBO had 64,741 viewers.

In Friday's local news derby results, CBS11 won at 10 p.m. in total viewers while WFAA8 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. competitions in both measurements while NBC5 ran the table at 6 p.m.
