Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Dec. 13) -- NCIS again lord and master

A new episode of CBS' NCIS aired Tuesday night. Any further questions?

It was the night's biggest D-FW draw, with 514,832 viewers before its spinoff, NCIS: Los Angeles, held steady at 8 p.m. with a time slot winning 487,735 viewers.

CBS' 9 p.m. attraction, the freshman series Unforgettable, dropped to 243,868 viewers but still comfortably won the hour.

NCIS also cruised at 7 p.m. with advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds before Fox's first-year sensation, New Girl, won from 8 to 8:30 p.m. in that key demographic. The second half of NCIS: L.A. beat Fox's Raising Hope, though, before Fox4's 9 p.m. local newscast won among 18-to-49-year-olds.

NBC's 7 p.m. special, William & Kate: Inside the Royal Marriage, was a commoner in the ratings with a third place finish at that hour in total viewers and a fourth place loser with 18-to-49-year-olds. Fox's Glee Christmas episode logged second place finishes at 7 p.m. in both ratings measurements.

Now let's dash away to the local news derby results, where only WFAA8 was left without a gift under the tree.

CBS11 took the 10 p.m. race in total viewers while Fox4 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 also took the 25-to-54 golds at 6 a.m. and 5 and 6 p.m., with another No. 1 finish at the early hour in total viewers.

NBC5 won at 6 p.m. in total viewers and CBS11 did likewise at 5 p.m.

WFAA8 finished fourth at 5 p.m. in both measurements and replicated that finish at 6 p.m. in total viewers. The ABC affiliate managed a third place showing among 25-to-54-year-olds at 6 p.m., pushing CBS11 into last place.
