ESPN’s Monday Night Football ran up the score with its matchup between the victorious Cincinnati Bengals and a faltering Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos.

MNF ruled prime-time from start to stop, averaging 460,284 D-FW viewers and 195,536 in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

The next biggest attraction, CBS’ 7 p.m. repeat of The Big Bang Theory, had 216,194 total viewers while NBC’s annual Saturday Night Live Christmas reprise was runner-up among 18-to-49-year-olds with 72,537.

The Peacock’s followup new episode of State of Affairs drooped with 90,662 total viewers and 28,384 in the 18-to-49 measurement. That left State of Affairs with a pair of fourth place finishes.

From 7 to 9 p.m., ABC’s last chapter of The Great Christmas Light Fight was an overall dim bulb with 111,584 total viewers and 40,999 in the 18-to-49 realm.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

Gannett8 topped the total viewers charts at 10 p.m. while NBC5 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

At 6 a.m., NBC5 had the most total viewers and Fox4 ranked first with 25-to-54-year-olds.
