Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Wed., Dec. 16) -- Survivor season finale snuffs out carousel of reruns

Airing opposite repeats on ABC, NBC and Fox, Wednesday’s two hour, 15 minute Survivor season finale put CBS at the head of the prime-time pack.

It hardly drew droves of D-FW viewers, though. Survivor averaged 212,472 from 7 to 9:15 p.m. before the rest of Fox4’s local newscast had 191,225 viewers to outdraw a truncated Survivor reunion tack-on (155,813).

Survivor also won among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds before the final 45 minutes of Fox4’s news nipped the reunion show.

Here are Wednesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 also continued its long 6 a.m. winning streak with another pair of firsts.

TEGNA8 swept the 6 p.m. competitions and added a 5 p.m. win with 25-to-54-year-olds. Fox4 won in total viewers at 5 p.m.
