As ever, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy took the top spots for weekly syndication (although Wheel seemed to have an extra big week), and Two and a Half Men is still firmly in third place.
Judge Judy in fourth place, once again topped Oprah. That's now getting to be typical. Ellen fans note that she was just out of the top 25 with an average viewership of 2.777 million.
Legend of the Seeker Fans: Seeker ran a new episode "Desecrated" the week of April 11, and the updated table for Season two’s ratings is still below the normal syndicated top 25 table.
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 9, not April 16).
Note: all numbers above and below are "average audience" figures rather than "gross average audience."
