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

    It does not surprise me that the talk shows are not in the top 25. Lately, they have been pitiful. Today, I watched Live with Kelly and she must have said um about 100 times and of course her favorite is OH MY GOSH. I wish someone would give her speech lessons. Maybe in september there will be another talk show to watch at 9 am. I hope so

  • jane

    Live with Kelly is getting worse. She wants to talk smut and seems to not having anything of interest to talk about. I don’t know how much longer she can go on by herself. She needs a cohost with intelligence or they might as well cancel the show

  • JR

    I hadn’t noticed if Law and Order: SVU was ranked top 25 in recent weeks. With all the reruns that air on USA Network, that’s pretty good.

  • Steve

    I’m surprised King of the Hill showed in the Top 25. Doesn’t that show air in graveyard slots in many markets these days?

  • LC

    I’m surprised to see four out of the five dramas repeated by My Network TV on here. That’s 80% of the network’s lineup! This is why MyNet should have more all-new programming…

  • stats

    Kelly OH MY GOSH Ripa is awful.

  • Liam

    I know The Simpsons are not put in the top 25 because they dont sell national advertising, but what kind of ratings do The Simpsons get in syndication???

  • stats

    Just as LONG as LIVE WITH KELLY isn’t in the top 25 is alright with me. Kelly Ripa is the WORST talk show host on TV. Well her and Elizabeth Hasselbeck. Now there’s a co-host for Kelly. 2 dumb blondes doing a show together asking dumb questions to guests. lol

  • Marie

    I don’t really watch the View but what I’ve seen of it, I would rather have Elizabeth than Behar.

  • Joan

    Well, at least with the olympics on for two weeks, I wont have to watch Kelly OH MY GOSH Ripa at 9am

  • RitaMNJ

    Wow Big band and WOF beat JJ. As for the annoying Ripa, Live with Kelly is just terrible to watch. I mean how many times can she say, “I was here yesterday and I don’t remember” Big mistake letting the King of morning TV go Gellyman. Washed up soap star on a narcissistic trip isn’t my idea of a good morning-stares at herself in the left monitor. She acts so deranged-I feel sorry for her kids, the way she embarrasses them (he who must not be named,WT^? For years you couldn’t tear me away from screen when Regis was on-now I go jogging ( I start work at 11am)……Live with Kelly DID NOT WIN EMMY-REGIS and Kelly won it (mostly for REGIS)I wish Kelly good luck on her future reality show ( a la jersey shore maybe-something tacky like that)but this show is already at the morgue (no matter how many pretty ribbons you decorate it with), it’s a gonner.

    OH MY GOSH. lol
