CBS made merry with the gift that keeps on giving Wednesday night.

The latest season finale of CBS’ Survivor and its companion one-hour “reunion” hour easily paced all prime-time programming. Many more of both are sure to come.

The 7 to 9 p.m. edition of Survivor drew 199,419 D-FW viewers before the following get-together had 163,808. Advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds also bought in, with Survivor logging 93,618 before the kicker pulled in 49,930.

Led to the slaughter was ABC’s 9 p.m. return of Match Game, which nosedived with 56,977 total viewers and 12,482 in the 18-to-49 realm to rank fourth across the board in the Big Four broadcast network universe.

And now for Wednesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 overcame the Match Game shortfall to rank first in total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. races and NBC5 did likewise at 5 p.m. The 6 p.m. golds went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and the Peacock with 25-to-54-year-olds.
