Why Aren't The Simpsons on This List?!

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

    Can’t believe there’s still an audience for Paternity-Test Central- er, Maury.

  • LLL

    Once Judge Joe Brown starts trashing the women and stop putting them on a pedestal I see his ratings increased. That was the only way he was going to man up.

  • Nick

    No one mentioned that Jeopardy finally beat 2.5 Men. :-D

  • Joan

    Once again, Live With Kelly did not make it in the top 25. Evan Maury beat her

  • Irene

    I just find Kelly R the most annoying person in the world. I can’t take five minutes with her especially in the morning.

  • Marie

    I like Kelly but she needs a permanent co-host. I do miss the chit chat between her & Regis & got tired of different co-host. What is taking so long anyway?

  • roger

    Put a fork in Kelly. She is done.

  • Fran

    Live with Kelly show is a disaster. She is not qualified to be a host.
    What they should do is get a new host and a new co host.
