KXAN’s newscasts were No. 1 at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.

From 5 in the morning till 10 at night, KXAN is home to Austin’s most-watched newscasts, according to the latest Nielsen ratings.

Those wins rank the station as one of the top NBC affiliates in the country, KXAN said. Other top-performing NBC stations include affiliates in Denver and Sacramento.

KXAN continued to widen its lead in May, winning some time slots with as much as 69 percent more households than its nearest competitor.

The only head-to-head news competition where KXAN didn’t finish first last month was at 4:30 a.m., where KVUE came out on top.

In primetime, NBC was the network to beat. ABC and CBS tied for second place, followed by The CW and MyNetworkTV.

May Nielsen ratings

Each ratings point equals 7,456 Central Texas households. The first number is ratings points, the second is share (the percentage of in-use TV sets tuned to a particular channel) and the third is total households.
