Syndicated Ratings: Judge Judy Tops Archrival Oprah For 15th Time in 17 Weeks; Plus Smackdown, Seeker

At this point it is hardly a surprise to find that Oprah lost to her daytime archrival Judge Judy, it's the 15th time in the last 17 weeks it has happened.

With overall syndication Judge Judy trailed only the usual top three of  Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, and Two and a Half Men.

The Ellen Degeneres Show was out of the top 25, averaging 2.23 million viewers and a 1.6 HH rating (tied for 39th) for the week.  Maury made the top 20 though, #20 with HH rating and #23 in viewers.

Bones fans should be happy to see it in the top 25 (note, the averages below do not include the numbers for the airings on TNT, but only national syndication).

Legend of the Seeker Fans: It's repeats from here on out for LotS until news of another season or it disappears from syndication at the end of its current run. The updated table for Season two’s ratings is still below the normal syndicated top 25 table.

Friday Night Smackdown was out of the top 25, averaging 3.046 million viewers for the week and a 1.9 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.
