Pittsburgh is one market where just about every ratings book is a horse race.
The May book once again was a close one and while KDKA came out a winner, WPXI is closing in on the outside.
WTAE won the ratings in the morning with WPXI second and KDKA in last.
But, after the mornings, KDKA takes over the ratings lead. The station won from noon to 11 p.m. with the exception of the 10 p.m. news on The CW. WPXI's Channel 11 report on Fox 53 took that slot.
WPXI did not win any of the main newscasts, but the station is gaining ground.
In the ages 25-54 demographic, its figures were flat at 4:30 a.m. but up for the rest of the day.
