KXAN continues to be Austin’s No. 1 choice for TV news, according to the latest Nielsen ratings.

In November, the city’s NBC affiliate had the top-ranked English-language newscasts at 4:30 a.m., 6 a.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.

ABC affiliate KVUE placed first at 5 a.m. and in the midday news competition.

Other highlights:

  • ABC’s “Good Morning America” is the network morning show to beat, while “NBC Nightly News” rules the roost at 5:30 p.m. weeknights.
  • CBS Austin’s new 6:30 p.m. newscast is off to a strong start, already delivering more viewers than “Modern Family,” the program it replaced.
  • NBC is the top-ranked network in prime time, followed by Fox, ABC, CBS, The CW and then MyNetworkTV.
  • It was a strong month for sports on Fox 7. Ratings for the Dallas Cowboys grew 26 percent year over year, while Game 7 of the World Series drew more than 180,000 Central Texas households.
