A new episode of Fox’s potent Lethal Weapon and a serviceable showing from its new Star series added up to a nice Wednesday night.

Airing in the 7 p.m. hour, Lethal Weapon ranked as prime-time’s most-watched attraction with 276,302 D-FW viewers. Star then fell to 210,862 viewers in the 8 p.m. hour but still beat everything in its time slot except for ABC’s Modern Family (232,675 viewers from 8 to 8:30 p.m.).

Fox4’s local newscast trampolined upward to 232,675 viewers in winning at 9 p.m. It was the same story among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, with only Modern Family breaking through to beat Fox/Fox4.

Here are Wednesday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 won by a comfy margin at 10 p.m. in total viewers and edged Fox4 and TEGNA8 for the top spot with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 ran the table at 6 a.m. and NBC5 did likewise at both 5 and 6 p.m.
