Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Aug. 25) -- Talent rolls before Rangers mop up

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
NBC’s America’s Got Talent, getting down to the nub of crowning another winner, ran away with Tuesday’s 7 to 9 p.m. ratings before the Texas Rangers were a hit in the 9 p.m. hour.

AGT drew 244,090 D-FW viewers and 85,153 in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

The postseason-contending Rangers’ tough home loss to Toronto, in which they lost a ninth inning lead, averaged 160,402 total viewers for the full game, with 63,076 in the 18-to-49 age range.

From 9 to 10 p.m., though, those numbers ballooned to time slot-winning numbers of 202,246 total viewers and 85,153 within the 18-to-49 motherlode.

ABC’s 8 to 10 p.m. dollop of Extreme Weight Loss again was Tuesday’s biggest overall loss leader. It had just 55,792 total viewers and shrunk to 18,923 in the 18-to-49 demographic.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 swept the 10 p.m. competitions with wins in total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 regained control at 6 a.m. with twin wins while TEGNA8 fell from Monday’s first place finishes to a third-place tie with CBS11 in total viewers and a fourth-place flop with 25-to-54-year-olds.

CBS11 had the most total viewers at 6 p.m., but TEGNA8 won in the 25-to-54 measurement. NBC5 ran the table at 5 p.m.
