Fox’s 24: Live Another Day reigned as prime-time’s biggest overall draw Monday while the daytime Mexico-Croatia World Cup soccer game made Univision23 D-FW’s biggest cheese.

24 had 205,938 viewers in the 8 p.m. hour to beat ABC’s competing second half of The Bachelorette. Fox also won at 7 p.m. in total viewers with Masterchef (149,127) and Fox4’s local newscast prevailed at 9 p.m. (also with 149,127 viewers).

Masterchef nipped the first half of Bachelorette to win at 7 p.m. among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds. Bachelorette then controlled the 8 p.m. hour before NBC’s American Ninja was the top 18-to-49 draw at 9 p.m.

The Mexico-Croatia World Cup match, which started at 3 p.m., drew a very impressive 340,682 viewers to the Univision23 telecast while adding 42,608 for ESPN’s coverage. Soccer also roared among 18-to-49-year-olds, with Univision23 drawing 185,632 and ESPN, 26,054.

In Monday’s local news derby results, WFAA8 won at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. competitions. The 6 p.m. firsts went to WFAA8 in total viewers and Fox4 in the 25-to-54 demographic.
