Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Jan. 21) -- Award-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine still being deep-sixed

Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine cop comedy still can’t get arrested in these parts.

The surprise Golden Globe winner continued to reap nothing ratings-wise. For the second post-Globe Tuesday, a new 7:30 p.m. episode again ranked last among the Big Four broadcast networks in both total D-FW viewers and advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds. The respective totals were 71,103 and 22,797.

Nine-Nine had the added advantage of going against reruns on CBS and ABC. But CBS’ NCIS repeat still easily won the 7 p.m. hour with 269,849 total viewers before the network’s NCIS: Los Angeles do-over ran first at 8 p.m. with 248,546 viewers.

NBC’s new Chicago Fire episode prevailed at 9 p.m. with 184,634 viewers while ABC’s third episode of Killer Women again ran last (120,722 viewers). The network has said it will cut Killer Women’s planned run short, but intends to keep it on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. until the show’s doomsday. The series is set in San Antonio, filmed in New Mexico and stars Tricia Helfer as a take-no-guff Texas Ranger amid a group of male colleagues.

In the key 18-to-49 demographic, NBC’s 7 to 9 p.m. edition of The Biggest Loser won those two hours before Fox4’s local 9 p.m. newscast drew Tuesday’s overall biggest haul of 18-to-49-year-olds (84,674). It almost tripled the crowd for Killer Women and CBS’ Person of Interest reprise, each of which had 29,310 viewers in the 18-to-49 age range.

In Tuesday’s four-way local news derby results, WFAA8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while NBC5 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and added a 5 p.m. win in the 25-to-54 demographic.

NBC5 took two early evening golds -- at 5 p.m. in total viewers and 6 p.m. with 25-to-54-year-olds. WFAA8 had the most total viewers at 6 p.m.
