The demographic breakdown for local TV news during February sweeps was released today by the Nielsen folks - and there's no surprise.

Channel 3 and Channel 19 fared well, as in past ratings periods.

Channel 19, Sacramento's Spanish-language channel, handily won the 18-to-34 and 18-to-49 age groups with its 6 p.m. newscast, "Noticias." In the 25-to-54 demographic, KCRA beat 19, with News10 and CBS13 pulling up the rear.

At 11 p.m., Channel 3's "KCRA Reports" won each demographic breakdown (tying with Channel 19 in the 18-to-34 category.)

Here are the numbers for 6 and 11 p.m. (Note: Other time slots were unavailable late Wednesday afternoon. So stay tuned for updates):
