Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., May 15) -- NCIS & Roseanne again lead charge

Tuesday night again had no surprises. CBS’ NCIS drew the most D-FW viewers among all prime-time attractions and ABC’s Roseanne paced the ratings among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds.

NCIS amassed 384,593 total viewers in the 7 p.m. hour before CBS’ two-hour NCIS: New Orleans controlled the rest of the night with 306,250.

Among 18-to-49ers, Roseanne spoke loudest in the Big Four broadcast network universe with 96,739 of ‘em. From 7:30 to 10 p.m., the time slot winners in this key demographic were the second half-hour of NBC’s The Voice, Fox’s New Girl, the second half-hour of NCIS: New Orleans and NBC’s Chicago Med by a smidgen over the concluding hour of NCIS: NO.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results for the 14th weekday of the 20-day May “sweeps” ratings period.

CBS11 capitalized on the big NCIS: NO lead-in by winning comfortably at 10 p.m. in total viewers. Fox4 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming) while also running the table as usual at 6 a.m. With just six weekdays remaining in the sweeps, CBS11 remains in a solid position to pull off an upset total viewers win at 10 p.m.

Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the most total viewers at 6 p.m., with Fox4 winning outright among 25-to-54-year-olds. NBC5 enjoyed twin wins at 5 p.m., where it remains strong.
