CBS’ unstoppable NCIS led the network to another prime-time sweep in total D-FW viewers Tuesday.

It also pulled out a 7 p.m. win among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds before rival stations took the remaining top spots in this key demographic.

NCIS’ haul of 461,585 total viewers easily was the night’s biggest. And its 91,188 viewers within the 18-to-49 age range were enough to outdraw Fox’s runner-up comedy combo of Dads (84,674) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (74,904).

CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles (305,356) and Person of Interest (291,153) had the most total viewers from 8 to 10 p.m. But the 18-to-49 crowns were won by NBC’s The Voice and Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast.

Two homegrown WFAA8 productions had decided ups and downs Tuesday. The station’s Good Morning Texas tied the third hour of NBC’s Today for first place in total viewers at 9 a.m. and won outright with both 18-to-49-year-olds and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming. But WFAA8’s still fledgling 4 p.m. local newscast ran a distant fourth in all three measurements.

CBS11’s competing 4 p.m. local newscast in contrast finished first in these three main ratings food groups.

Here are Tuesday’s four-way local news derby results:

CBS11 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. but WFAA8 again won among 25-to-54-year-olds.

Fox4 notched another 6 a.m. sweep and also had the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 6 p.m.

CBS11 ran first at 6 p.m. in total viewers and added a 5 p.m. win in the 25-to-54 demographic. NBC5 had the most total viewers at 5 p.m.
