Syndicated Ratings: Judge Judy Smackdown of Oprah Continues
She doesn’t have a book club. I’m not sure anybody cares who she voted for in the presidential election. She’s never been a judge on American Idol (though how cool would that be?) but when it comes to daytime television, Judge Judy is the only judge who matters.
Ellen averaged a a 1.6 household rating and 2.28 million. Judge Judy averaged a 4.3 household rating and 6.15 million.
Oprah at least bounced up a tiny bit to a 3.0 household rating versus the previous week’s 2.8 that was the lowest in the show’s history.
With overall syndication Judge Judy trailed only the usual top three of Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, and Two and a Half Men (and in household rating she was actually ahead of “Men”).

Friday Night Smackdown was out of the top 25, averaging 3.023 million viewers for the week and a 1.8 household rating on Friday, July 16.
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.
