Thursday’s prime-time Nielsens reflected the night’s usual audience delivery systems.

CBS’ The Big Bang Theory again ranked as the No. 1 overall attraction with 334,739 D-FW viewers. CBS’ Young Sheldon and Mom also won their time slots in total viewers before the network’s Life In Pieces fell behind the second half of ABC’s new Station 19. The 9 p.m. hour then went to Fox4’s local newscast.

In the advertiser-prized 18-to-49 age range, ABC won from start to stop with Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19 and Scandal. Grey’s had Thursday’s biggest haul in this key demographic, with 84,256 viewers.

On Wednesday night, CBS took the 7 to 9 p.m. hours in total viewers with Survivor and Seal Team before Fox4’s news again claimed the 9 p.m. gold. Among 18-to-49ers, Survivor, Fox’s Star and Fox4’s news were the respective winners from 7 to 10 p.m.

Here are the Wednesday and Thursday local news derby results.

Wednesday -- NBC5 ran first at 10 p.m. in total viewers while Fox4 drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again ran away with the 6 a.m. competitions. Save for a slight stumble on Good Friday morning, the station has an unbeaten streak stretching for more than five months.

TEGNA8 and CBS11 tied for the top spot in total viewers at 6 p.m., with NBC5 taking the 25-to-54 spoils. The Peacock also had the most total viewers at 5 p.m. while Fox4 won among 25-to-54-year-olds.

Thursday -- TEGNA8 swept the 10 p.m. races and Fox4 did likewise at 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. The 6 p.m. wins went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and Fox4 in the 25-to-54 measurement.
