NBC signed off on This Is Us until Jan. 2nd Tuesday, with the so-called “fall finale” delivering big enough numbers to rank as D-FW’s most-watched prime-time program.

Again topping the crowd for NBC’s previous hour of The Voice, the acclaimed drama drew 256,396 D-FW viewers and 134,186 in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic. That’s more than 50 percent of the total audience, which is very good.

At 7 p.m., The Voice outdrew CBS’ perennial Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer outing in total viewers by a score of 227,907 to 199,419. But Rudolph still packed a punch with 18-to-49-year-olds, winning the 7 p.m. hour with 53,050 versus Fox’s Lethal Weapon (49,930) and The Voice (46,809).

At 9 p.m., NBC’s Chicago Med was tops with 163,808 total viewers and 40,568 within the 18-to-49 motherlode. CBS’ competing and now antiquated Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show had scantily clad numbers, too, with 99,709 total viewers and just 28,085 in the 18-to-49 realm. That put it third ahead of only ABC’s repeat of Kevin (Probably) Saves the World.

Here are the local news derby results.

TEGNA8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 prevailed with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again swept the 6 a.m. competitions while the 6 p.m. firsts went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and NBC5 with 25-to-54-year-olds.

The Peacock and Fox4 shared the 5 p.m. spoils in total viewers but Fox4 won outright in the 25-to-54 demographic.
