Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Oct. 9) -- American Music Awards not a hit tune

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
ABC’s annual American Music Awards show, which used to air on a Sunday or Monday, failed to top the charts as a Tuesday entry.

The three-hour presentation ran third for most of the night in total D-FW viewers with an average of 126,527. Among the Big Four broadcast networks, that was good enough to outdraw only Fox’s Gifted (91,381) and Lethal Weapon (98,410) during the 7 to 9 p.m. portion of the AMAs.

CBS’ NCIS as usual won the 7 p.m. hour in total viewers with 351,465. The network’s FBI (260,084) and NCIS: New Orleans (238,996) also won their time slots.

Among advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds, NBC’s The Voice and This Is Us took the first two hours of prime-time before the closing hour of the AMAs won from 9 to 10 p.m. This Is Us, the night’s top draw in this key demographic, drew 87,557 viewers.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 swept the 10 p.m. competitions in total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again cruised in both ratings measurements at 6 a.m. and NBC5 ran the table at 5 p.m. In the 6 p.m. races, NBC5 and TEGNA8 tied for the top spot in total viewers while the Peacock had first place to itself with 25-to-54-year-olds.
