I'm going to start producing the top 25 tables again, just to have them, but then farm you off to Broadcasting & Cable for the in-depth write-ups for the week. They cover a lot of shows that are outside of the top 25, and to give you some perspective, for the week ending September 6, ranked by household rating, Ellen Degeneres' talk show ranked 53rd for the week and Judge Joe Brown was ranked 28th. For the week, there were 123 shows ranked, though a lot of shows are on the list more than once, but with different categorization.
Despite Ellen being ranked 53rd, with the American Idol announcement it's definitely of interest so Broadcasting & Cable's write-up headlines Ellen.
Also note that the syndicated weekly results are delayed versus normal reporting. These numbers are not for last week, but for the week before last week.
