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).
Another holiday week (week ending January 2) with lots or repeats but Maury hit season highs in households(2.3 rating) and total viewers (3.552 million). Because of the way Nielsen includesin the syndicated totals, Maury didn't quite make it into the top 25 (#26) in households, but he bested Ellen who (I believe was all repeats) dropped to #31 for the week.
Why Aren't Theon The List Below?!

Why Aren't Theon This List?!
Yes, twice with this disclaimer.
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.
