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

    Do Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune air new episodes from June-August? I know there’s some sort of cycle they follow with original episodes, but not sure what it is.

  • Ccemerson

    WoW ! I’m impressed w/Kelly’s #s. she’s right there w/Drs Oz & Phil. Thought she would have had a rough road ahead of her after Regis’s exit. Congrats to her.

  • Nick

    @ JR
    Wheel of Fortune ends in the first week of June, and Jeopardy ends a week or so earlier. The both usually come back in September.

  • jane

    I wouldnt consider that great ratings for live with Kelly. the other shows were all repeats

  • Joan

    When Regis was on the show, the ratings were higher. Kelly had better hang on to the emmy because without Regis, she wouldnt have won. I doubt if youll see her get another one unless they find a great co host like Regis

  • Lamdog

    Glad to see Big Bang doing well in syndication.

    Last year ratings for regis and kelly 2.3HH 3.136 mil viewers
    This year ratings for kelly 2.4 HH 3.131 mil viewers

    HUH?

    the rating might have been better for some weeks since regis has been gone, but i find it hard to believe that it is better then it was most of the time, because the show is not better. Kelly has no interesting stories,the first 20 minutes used to be the most entertaining. I hope when she gets a pernament cohost that they have something to bring to the show

  • Marie

    Although I like Kelly, I have stopped watching the show because it is boring. I use to love the chit chat between Regis & Kelly & hope once they decide on a co-host, it will get more interesting again. Frankly, I don’t know why it is taking so long. I miss my Regis.
