Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Feb. 4) -- CBS, Fox4 news and Biggest Loser are biggest winners

Paced as always by NCIS, CBS’ crime-time lineup won from start to finish Tuesday among all D-FW viewers.

But the live two-hour finale of NBC’s The Biggest Loser also made some noise, topping the advertiser-prized 18-to-49 demographic.

NCIS drew 504,192 total viewers to rank as the night’s overall top attraction. Its followup acts, NCIS: Los Angeles (433,179 viewers) and Person of Interest (262,748) easily held serve.

The 7 p.m. 18-to-49 crown also went to NCIS (91,188 viewers) before Biggest Loser weighed in (87,931 viewers) to outpoint CBS from 8 to 10 p.m.

In Tuesday’s local news derby results, Fox4 scored an uncommon doubleheader win at 10 p.m. by drawing the most viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 as usual ran the table at 6 a.m. The station also swept the 5 p.m. competitions and added a 6 p.m. win with 25-to-54-year-olds. CBS11 blocked an exceedingly rare double grand slam by drawing the most total viewers at 6 p.m. Fox4 ran third in that measurement behind WFAA8.
