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

    I can’t believe Judge Judy is still doing so well. I don’t think I have watched it in a while but she is really hanging on rather great.

  • Alex

    Judge Judy is the Queen of Daytime and has started to assume that role even before Oprah ended her daytime show.

  • JR

    ^The multiple-countings of episodes also has not hurt JJ’s bid to rule daytime (though like some other “daytime” shows, she airs outside of daytime hours- i.e. 6 p.m.-8 p.m.).

  • JR

    ^It airs during those hours in some markets- speaking of which, I wonder where Judge Judy does air in actual “daytime” hours…

    Just as long as LIVE WITH KELLY is near the bottom of the top 25. I HATE Kelly Ripa, the skinny no talented washed up SOAP ACTRESS.

  • Marie

    I like Kelly but no longer watch the show as the show isn’t the same without Regis.

  • stats

    I see where the show Live with Kelly is going in search of a new co-host. Her new co-host must take off his pants during the show. Did you see Jerry Oconell today taking off his pants? Now let’s see, MICHAEL STRAHAN did the same thing a couple of weeks ago and got a JERRY SPRINGER LIKE OVATION from the mostly women audience, as did the guy today. This show has become so bad, and without REGIS there it’s lost alot of CLASS.

  • Joan

    You are so right, stats. Live with Kelly ia just gettinh pitiful. All Kelly does is talk dirty. Today she said she bought Gelman a mankini. Whats with that? Regis created that show and she is ruining it.She has a very limited vocabulary. She is not a talk show host. I wish someone would give her a few lessons in public speaking. Her favorite words are OH MY GOSH and UM UM UM UM and she repeats them over and over and over. Kelly, Why dont you go back to the soaps or maybe Jersey Shore and give us a break

  • stats

    Joan you and I think very much alike. I have always noticed and been annoyed with Kelly’s OH MY GOSH especially. lol She says it over and over again that I don’t even think she realizes how many times in a sentence she says it. It’s pathetic. Like you said JOAN Kelly should go back to the soaps or that Jersey Shore show. She can’t act so she’d feel right at home. And you’re ALSO RIGHT Joan about Kelly talking dirty alot and trashy things. She’d be right at home with SNOOKI on that show. lol
