Syndicated Top 25: Judge Judy Tops Oprah Yet Again, Plus Legend Of The Seeker

As ever, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy took the top spots for weekly syndication, and Two and a Half Men seems firmly entrenched in third place. 

Judge Judy once again topped Oprah. That's now not particularly unusual. Ellen fans note that she was just out of the top 25 with an average viewership of 2.845 million.

Legend of the Seeker Fans:  Seeker ran a repeat the week of April 4, and the updated table for Season two’s ratings is still below the normal syndicated top 25 table.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown! FansSmackdown! headed to Syfy, was a bit further out of the top 25 than Ellen, averaging just 2.791 million viewers.

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 April 2,  not April 9).

Note: all numbers above and below are "average audience" figures rather than "gross average audience."
