Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Thurs., Jan. 12) -- sleepy night

Nothing jumped off the prime-time ratings charts Thursday. While North Texas braces for the invasion of the Green Bay Packers, a 7 p.m. repeat of CBS’ The Big Bang Theory led all programming with just 203,591 D-FW viewers.

That’s likely less than one-tenth the predicted TV crowd for Sunday’s big game on Fox, which almost assuredly will draw more than 2 million viewers locally.

Among advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds, NBC’s 7:30 p.m. episode of its first-year series The Good Place ranked No. 1 Thursday with 64,142 viewers.

Here are the local news derby results.

TEGNA8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while NBC5 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and the Peacock had twin wins at 5 p.m.

The 6 p.m. golds went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and Fox4 in the 25-to-54 demographic, where it beat NBC5 by a paper-thin margin.
