The ongoing TV season’s biggest new hit, NBC’s This Is Us, returned Tuesday night after coverage of President Obama’s farewell speech on an array of networks.

It didn’t miss a beat after a holiday hiatus. The 9 p.m. airing easily ranked as prime-time’s most-watched program on a single network, drawing 327,200 D-FW viewers and 147,527 in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

Obama’s Chicago speech consumed most of the 8 to 9 p.m. hour. The biggest audience was on NBC, with 210,862 total viewers tuned in. Among the three cable news networks, CNN ranked No. 1 with 101,795 total viewers.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 drew the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while tying TEGNA8 for the top spot among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 scored twin wins at 6 a.m. and NBC5 did likewise at 5 p.m. The 6 p.m. firsts went to NBC5 in total viewers and Fox4 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
