Charlie Sheen a Hit in Syndicated Ratings, Too + “Legend of the Seeker” Ratings
People can’t get enough of Charlie Sheen and Two and a Half Men. It trailed only battle tested syndicated ratings champions Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy for the week ending February 14.
For third consecutive week, Oprah bested Judge Judy (after a 10 week drought).
Legend of the Seeker Fans: The updated table for Season two’s ratings is below the normal syndicated top 25 table.
WWE Friday Night Smackdown! Fans: Smackdown! didn’t make the top 25 (it was #34 by viewers), but the telecast on February 5 averaged 3.159 million viewers and a 1.8 household rating.
Please note that the syndicated weekly results are delayed versus normal reporting. While we get the broadcast and cable ratings for the prior Monday-Sunday period every Tuesday, there is an extra week of lag time with the syndicated ratings and these numbers are not for last week, but for the week before last (in other words, the WWE Friday Night Smackdown! is for February 12, not February 19).
