KUTV is back on top of the news ratings in Salt Lake City.
According to numbers from Nielsen, KUTV averaged approximately 66,400 households for its Monday-Friday 10 p.m. newscasts during the February sweeps. Second-place KSL averaged about 52,900 households, edging out third-place KSTU 50,300 for its 9 p.m. newscast. KTVX trailed with 23,300.
The household numbers also show KUTV's local newscasts were the most-watched from 4:30-8 a.m., at midday and at 5 p.m. That last time period is significant because KUTV retook sole possession of first-place at 5 p.m. (after tying with KSL in the November 2014 sweeps).
