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).
As they seemingly do every week, 'Wheel of Fortune,' 'Jeopardy' and '' topped the syndication ratings for the week ending January 9, 2011. That's hardly a surprise. More surprising perhaps is that the weekend run of 'Numb3rs' had a better household rating than the Monday-Friday run of 'The .'
To be fair, quite a few shows fared better than 'The' and 'The ' actually averaged a few more viewers than 'Numb3rs.' For any of you wondering how that can be, it's simply this: 'Numb3rs' averaged 2% more households than 'The ,' but 'The ' averaged slightly more viewers per household (1.33) than 'Numb3rs' (1.26).
Why Aren't Theon The List Below?!
