Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Nov. 2) -- The Voice still hitting high notes

NBC continues to flex with the The Voice, which again controlled Monday’s 7 to 9 p.m. slot on the premier night for big-ticket TV fare.

The Voice averaged 417,862 D-FW viewers and 139,731 in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic. That was more than good enough to beat even ESPN’s Monday Night Football game between the Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts.

ABC’s two hours of Dancing with the Stars ran second in those two hours with 304,543 total viewers while CBS also had solid numbers with the second episode of Supergirl (219,554) and an 8 p.m. hour of Scorpion (233,719). But MNF took the No. 2 spot among 18-to-49-year-olds, with DWTS third and the CBS combo trailing.

MNF, which went into overtime and didn’t end until 11:20 p.m., was the top draw from 9 to 10 p.m. and beyond in both ratings measurements. Among the Big Four broadcast networks, NBC’s Blindspot and CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles tied for second in total viewers while Blindspot had the silver medal to itself in the 18-to-49 realm.

Fox’s 8 p.m. episode of Minority Report again was the basement dweller with both total viewers and 18-to-49-year-olds.

Here are the local news derby results for the third weekday of the November “ratings” sweeps.

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

Fox4 notched another pair of wins at 6 a.m. and also swept the 5 p.m. competitions.

The 6 p.m. spoils were split between TEGNA8 in total viewers and Fox4 in the 25-to-54 demographic.
