Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast carried the day and the night Monday, ranking as D-FW’s most-watched TV attraction in two major ratings food groups.

It drew the most total viewers (163,808) while also ranking tops with advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds (46,809 viewers).

In the preceding 7 to 9 p.m. slot, NBC’s American Ninja Warrior won in total viewers with 128,198, and ABC’s competing Bachelor in Paradise had the upper hand with 18-to-49ers (43,688).

CBS’ 8 p.m. episode of Salvation bottomed out with 71,221 total viewers and 9,362 in the 18-to-49 realm to rank last in that hour among the Big Four broadcast networks.

Here are Monday’s four-way local news derby results.

Fox4 won at both 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. in total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming). The 6 to 9 a.m. portion of its Good Day outdrew the combined audience for local and network programming on rivals NBC5, TEGNA8 and CBS11. In the 6 a.m. hour, CBS11’s local offering continued its late summer mini-resurgence with a runner-up finish among 25-to-54-year-olds.

CBS11 also ran the table at 6 p.m. and drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 5 p.m. NBC5 won in total viewers at 5 p.m.
