Another two-hour chunk of NBC’s America’s Got Talent again set the overall prime-time pace Wednesday while CBS scored highest among advertiser-craved 18-to-49-year-olds with a competing episode of Big Brother.

AGT averaged 177,060 total D-FW viewers and BB had 63,514 to lead in the 18-to-49 age range. Both hauls are notably skimpy in a No. 5 TV market with 7.082 million total viewers and 3.176 million in the 18-to-49 realm.

ABC’s wall-to-wall prime-time sitcom repeats ran last in total viewers among the Big Four broadcast networks. The 8 to 9 p.m. episodes of Modern Family and black-ish slipped into third place among 18-to-49-year-olds ahead of Fox’s competing Wayward Pines.

On Fox Sports Southwest, the Texas Rangers’ road loss to the Boston Red Sox averaged 120,401 total viewers and 44,460 in the 18-to-49-demographic.

Here are Wednesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 led at 10 p.m. in total viewers and NBC5 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 ran the table at 6 a.m. and also swept the 5 p.m. competitions. NBC5 scored twin wins at 6 p.m.
