NBC’s America’s Got Talent continued to run strong down the backstretch of the summer TV season, controlling the 8 to 10 p.m. hours in dominating fashion Tuesday.

AGT averaged 262,748 D-FW viewers and also won its time slot among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds (94,443).

The 7 p.m. hour went to CBS’ NCIS repeat in total viewers (213,039) and the Peacock’s Food Fighters in the 18-to-49 demographic (52,107).

Here are the local news derby results.

NBC5 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while WFAA8 ended a three weekday winless drought with a No. 1 finish among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

WFAA8 added a double header win at 6 p.m. and Fox4 as usual ran the table at 6 a.m.

NBC5 ranked first in total viewers at 5 p.m. and tied WFAA8 for the most 25-to-54-year-olds.
