Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Thurs., July 14) -- very slow going

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
It’s a very slow night in the conventional TV-watching world when a CBS repeat of The Big Bang Theory is Thursday’s most-watched prime-time attraction in all of D-FW.

Big Bang drew 191,225 viewers while CBS’ 8 p.m. episode of Big Brother had the most advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds (44,460).

The night’s loss leader among the Big Four broadcast networks, NBC’s 9 p.m. hour of Aquarius, tanked with 28,330 total viewers and 12,703 in the 18-to-49 age range.

D-FW, the No. 5 TV market in the country, houses 7.082 million potential “appointed hour” TV-watchers, with 3.176 million of them in the 18-to-49 age range.

Here are Thursday’s local news derby numbers.

CBS11 won two battles for the first time in recent memory, ranking No. 1 in total viewers at both 5 and 6 p.m.

But NBC5 was the big winner, with sweeps at 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. in total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming). The Peacock also won at 5 and 6 p.m. in the 25-to-54 demographic.
