Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon. April 1) -- The Voice still resonates

NBC remained solidly atop Monday’s 7 to 9 p.m. ratings charts with another two-pronged edition of The Voice. Then it was all downhill.

Again spanking ABC’s competing Dancing with the Stars, the Peacock sung to the tune of 399,284 D-FW viewers, with 200,069 of them in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49 age range. The respective totals for DWTS were 316,673 and 79,735.

NBC’s Revolution then plunged to 172,105 total viewers, running third at 9 p.m. behind ABC’s Castle (323,557) and Fox4’s local newscast (213,410). Revolution moved into second place with 18-to-49-year-olds, edging Fox4 while still losing big to Castle. CBS, with wall-to-wall reruns, ran fourth all night among the Big Four broadcast networks.

On TNT, the weekly 8 p.m. episode of Dallas had 151,452 total viewers with 66,977 in the 18-to-49 demographic.

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. NBC5 wound up last in both measurements despite the night’s boffo early returns from The Voice.

Fox4 ran the table at 6 a.m. while the 6 p.m. firsts went to CBS11 in total viewers and Fox4 among 25-to-54-year-olds.

Fox4, NBC5 and WFAA8 tied for tops at 5 p.m. in total viewers, with CBS11 just a hair behind. The 25-to-54 gold went to Fox4.
