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

    You know America is filled with a bunch of unemployed losers if Maury is the #1 talk show.

  • lll

    Sad that 14 out of 25 slots is filled with repeat shows. Also I agree with Brad that Maury is the #1 talk show. What’s sad is that he’s #1…at #20. Maybe the talk show era needs to stop.

  • USAmerica1st

    Judge Judy, Wheel, and Jeopardy just keep rolling along, year after year.

  • Justin

    Does anyone here know what the total viewers are for access Hollywood or EXTRA? Please help if you can. :) Thanks :)

  • justin

    I just love how Maury is the #1 talk show, and it is not even available where I live.

    “Maybe the talk show era needs to stop.”

    It needed to stop with Donahue in the early 80’s.

  • Joan

    yea Maury. Maybe he should win the emmy for talk show host. Anything is better than Lie with Kelly

  • roger

    No rating for Live with Kelly because it is in the tank and should give us all a break and be cancelled.

  • Marie

    Is Maury still stuck on who is the babies fathers? Those people are such losers. Anyway, I’m amazed that he is the #1 talk show.

  • Marie

    Meant are, not is.
