Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Nov. 28) -- Supergirl flies high, Packers-Eagles fly higher

ESPN’s Monday Night Football matchup between the victorious (and virtuous) Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles easily led all programming while the return of Supergirl gave The CW a nice boost.

Packers-Eagles averaged 392,639 D-FW viewers and 186,012 in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old age range.

Airing in the 7 p.m. hour and marking the launch of CW’s four-night “Heroes Vs Villains Crossover Event,” Supergirl drew 130,880 viewers and 54,521 in the 18-to-49 realm. Those are rather heroic numbers for CW. And among 18-to-49-year-olds, Supergirl beat time slot competition from Fox’s Gotham and reruns of CBS’ The Big Bang Theory and Kevin Can Wait. She also tied the first hour of ABC’s CMA Country Christmas.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results, with competition beginning for keeps again after the Thanksgiving holiday period and the end of the November “sweeps” ratings period.

CBS11 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while NBC5 won among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 scored twin wins at 6 a.m. and NBC5 likewise swept the 5 and 6 p.m. competitions.
