NBC dined on the fruits of victory throughout prime-time Monday with its potent one-two punch of The Voice and Blindspot.

The Voice averaged 403,697 D-FW viewers from 7 to 9 p.m. before Blindspot emerged with 276,214 in the 9 p.m. hour. Both totals were more than good enough to win their time slots, with even ESPN’s Monday Night Football falling short despite the Houston Texans’ down-to-the-wire 10-6 upset of the previously unbeaten Cincinnati Bengals.

The Voice and Blindspot, already renewed for a second season, likewise beat all comers in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic. The Voice drew 127,028 viewers in that age range while Blindspot had 107,974.

Fox4’s local newscast also did well at 9 p.m. with respective totals of 219,554 and 95,271 viewers. And in the 7 p.m. hour, CBS’ new Supergirl rang up a nice-sized 240,802 total viewers but still fell short of the first hour of ABC’s competing Dancing with the Stars (283,296 viewers). Supie beat DWTS among 18-to-49-year-olds, though, as did CBS’ following episode of Scorpion.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results for the 13th weekday of the 20-day November “sweeps” ratings period.

NBC5 capitalized on its network’s strong prime-time ratings and swept the 10 p.m. competitions in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 remained unbeaten throughout the sweeps at 6 a.m. by scoring another pair of wins. The station also had the most 25-to-54-year-olds at both 5 and 6 p.m.

NBC5 ran first in total viewers at 5 p.m. and TEGNA8 took the 6 p.m. gold in that measurement.
