Note: the table below is now ranked by household, which is the industry standard when it comes to focusing on syndicated ratings. All ratings Live+SD (same day DVR viewing).
What's that you say, these rankings look almost identical to last week's?
It's true, despite the week below being the week including Thanksgiving, the shows in the top 10 were identical to last week (although Judge Judy flip-flopped with the Thursday night NFL Game) and there wasn't much movement within the top 25.
Why Aren't Theon This List?!
While Therepeats are available nationally its ratings are not counted in the weekly syndicated ratings because The does not sell any national advertising in syndication.

Why Aren't Theon This List?!
Yes, twice with this disclaimer this week.
While The Simpsons repeats are available nationally its ratings are not counted in the weekly syndicated ratings because The Simpsons does not sell any national advertising in syndication.
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.
For syndicated shows which air on multiple days, the viewership shown is the average of all telecasts.
BUENA VISTA items are syndicated packages of old Disney movies.
DAD = Disney ABC Domestic Television, SPT= Sony Pictures Television, 2/T=Twentieth Television, ESP = ESPN, CTD = CBS Television Distribution.
AT = Additional Time/Telecasts, more than the typical number of episodes or time periods/week.
