The Houston Rockets’ rout of the defending champ Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of their Western Conference finals gave TNT an explosive showing in D-FW Wednesday night among advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds.

The game averaged 96,739 viewers in this key demographic, well more than half its total audience of 156,686.

Prime-time’s No. 2-ranked attraction among 18-to-49ers, ABC’s 8 p.m. episode of Modern Family, had 78,015 viewers while CBS’ Survivor led all programming in total viewers with 178,053 during the 7 to 8 p.m. hour.

Here are Wednesday’s local news derby results for the 15th weekday of the 20-day May ratings “sweeps.”

TEGNA8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m., but NBC5 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 remained unbeaten in the sweeps at 6 a.m. with another pair of twin wins. The Peacock swept the 6 p.m. competitions and added a 5 p.m. win in total viewers. CBS11 drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 5 p.m.
