Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Thurs., Jan. 19) -- comedy's king for CBS

Again paced by The Big Bang Theory, CBS all but ruled the 7 to 9 p.m. roost Thursday.

BB piled up 458,079 D-FW viewers before the inevitable sharp fall-offs for the network’s The Great Indoors, Mom (196,320 viewers apiece) and Life In Pieces (189,049). Still, all of them had enough ratings juice to win their time slots in total viewers. And among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, only Great Indoors stumbled, losing by a small margin to NBC’s competing second half of The Good Place.

At 9 p.m., Fox4’s local newscast comfortably won in both total viewers (181,778) and 18-to-49-year-olds (80,178).

Here are Thursday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and TEGNA8 had the most total viewers at both 5 and 6 p.m. The 25-to-54 firsts went to NBC5 at 5 p.m and Fox4 at 6 p.m., both by narrow margins over runner-up TEGNA8.
