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

    ….live with….who cares just pull the plug.

  • stats

    Live with Kelly OH MY GOSH Ripa. Terrible talk show.

  • Big T

    What is Revolution 1?

  • Joan

    The only way Live with Kelly UM UM UM Ripa is going to survive is to fire her and get two new co hosts.She can go back to the soap operas or Jersey Shore or she could be ths star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It is pretty sad whan Maury is the number one talk show

  • roger

    Ripa is one annoying, irriating motor mouth. Way to ruin a show that was once OK Pull the plug and get the hook out. 6 months more???

  • stats

    “OH MY GOSH” but Joan doesn’t like Kelly annoying olive oil Ripa. lol

  • Joan

    You are so right stats. I do not like Kelly STICK FIGURE Ripa. If she turned sidewaysm she would disappear

  • stats

    Very funny Joan. lol

  • Stacy

    Wow just saw comments on twitter that this whole week on Live with Kelly was previously recorded. I kind of feel sorry for her. She’s a legend in her own mind, and will violently fall from her self made pedestal. Hope they do give her a reality show.

  • stats

    Every summer at this time they do this and have reruns of LIVE, even when REGIS was there. However, I agree with STACY with what she just said. Just give Kelly a reality show where she belongs.
