Sweeping Up in Chicago

The November book was the same old story in Chicago. 

WLS continues to be the Windy City blowtorch.

The station's 10 p.m. news pulled a 9.3 rating Monday through Friday, which is up about a half point.  

WMAQ maintained its second-place standing in the November ratings book with a 6.6 rating, up 0.7 rating point year over year. 

Coming in third overall in the November sweeps book was Tribune Media Co.'s WGN which pulled a 4.7, up 0.5 rating point year over year. 

But CBS-owned WBBM continues to struggle. In November, the station's 10 p.m. news report was fourth overall in the market among the five major local stations with late newscasts, and third among the three stations that air their late news at 10 p.m. Channel 2's 10 p.m. newscast notched a 4.2 rating, down from a 4.6 a year ago.

Then there's Fox-owned WFLD-Channel 32. What else is there to say? The station's hour-long 9 p.m. news report has been the bottom-feeder in the market for years, and nothing seems to be about to change in that regard. The station's late news scored a lowly 1.7 rating in November, flat year over year.
