NBC’s America’s Got Talent again ranked as Tuesday’s top TV draw, narrowly winning in total viewers but dominating the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

From 8 to 10 p.m. Talent drew 185,873 D-FW viewers to edge competition from CBS’ crime rerun combo of NCIS: Los Angeles (172,105) and Person of Interest (165,221). CBS’ NCIS repeat won the 7 p.m. hour with 178,989 viewers.

Talent won its two-hour bloc by a much wider margin among 18-to-49-year-olds while the 7 to 8 p.m. hour was split between The CW’s Whose Line Is It Anyway? and the second half-hour of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance.

Over on Fox Sports Southwest, the Texas Rangers late-starting win at Oakland, which put them back in first place by themselves, averaged 172,105 total viewers. But the game still ran third from 9 to 10 p.m. before peaking at 220,294 viewers between 10:15 and 10:30 p.m.

In Tuesday’s local news derby results, WFAA8 won at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming. WFAA8 also swept the 5 p.m. competitions.

Fox4 notched another doubleheader win at 6 a.m. The 6 p.m. spoils were split between CBS11 in total viewers and Fox4 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
