When it comes to local television ratings, WIVB-TV (Channel 4) is as hot as the Buffalo Sabres. The CBS affiliate was the winner in household ratings and the key age 25-54 demographic in almost all-time periods during the November sweeps, which ended on Thanksgiving eve. The one notable exception is 5 a.m., when the WGRZ-TV (Channel 2) morning program “Daybreak” won over Channel ‘s “Wake Up!” in households while “Wake Up!” won in the 25-54 demographic. However, at 6 a.m., Channel 4 tied Channel 2 in households and was the winner in the key demographic. Channel 2 has long dominated in the morning, but there was a change in personnel at both stations this November. It was the first November sweeps in several years without John Beard as co-anchor of “Daybreak.” And it was the first November sweeps since Dave Greber replaced Jordan Williams as co-anchor of “Wake Up!” The November results are consistent with the dramatic … [Read more...] about WIVB Channel 4 climbs to the top in November sweeps
And the local TV winners on election night are … WIVB-TV (Channel 4), Fox News and CBS. The total rating of all the networks and affiliates that carried election coverage Tuesday night was 23.1, which is more than 5 points lower than the lowest-rated Buffalo Bills game this season. Channel 4 earned a narrow victory over WGRZ-TV (Channel 7) in the household ratings at 11 p.m. Tuesday, when all three local affiliates gave results of the key local and national races.

WKBW-TV (Channel 7) was deep in third place with a 2.45 rating. The ratings reflected the placement of their networks in the prime-time competition.

Technically, it's just a local news ratings race, but you can be forgiven for mistaking it for a high-stakes prize fight. In keeping with a recent trend, New Orleans' four major TV newsrooms traded body blows in the recently concluded July sweeps period, which once more played out more like a battle royal. If there were a belt to be awarded for July, it would go to WVUE-Fox 8, which continues to make inroads on weekday mornings, highlighted by a first-place finish in the competitive 6 a.m. time slot. WVUE's "Fox 8 Morning Edition" local newscast widened its lead in the 7 and 8 o'clock hours, when the city's other network affiliates -- WWL (CBS), WDSU (NBC) and WGNO (ABC) -- switch to network morning shows. WVUE's morning gains continue a trend started in early 2017, when WWL's once-dominant "Eyewitness Morning News" was replaced on Channel 4 by "CBS This Morning" at 7 and 8 a.m., at which point the local program migrates to its less-watched sister station, WUPL. WVUE also … [Read more...] about New Orleans’ TV news slugfest continues in July ratings period
