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

    Does American Now even pull a 1.0 HH???

  • Joan

    \\\\\\i hope that we get some new talk shows at 9am because right now Live With Kelly sucks and even with the new co host, Kelly will just be sucking up to him. Maybe if they kept Michael Strahan and got rid of Kelly, it would make the show more interestting. How about it, Gelman

  • lkwdlion

    Please be kind to Kelly. Afterall shes her 3 childrens primary bread winner. I rarely, rarely, rarely tune-in this attempt at morning entertainment, but when I have I hear about them & Ive seen hubby act. You know this industry loves to self promote & self congratulate so I would nominate Kelly for “HARDEST WORKING WOMEN IN TELEVISION”..She cant act (day or night time)…to all but a small demo (never see her in top 25) not interesting. The advantage for Kelly is if not Kelly who or what? Look at the syndication roster..it says it all. Producers dont have a clue..but you have a remote..keep it close by!

    Michael Strahan will not save the show. Kelly is plain awful. And I agree that she cannot act at all and her husband can’t either. Kelly had better be saving all the MILLIONS she’s getting for nothing right now because I can see Live with Kelly and Michael tanking soon.

  • RLH

    Does ANYONE know if America Now ratings have been released? I want to be secure in the knowledge the show is failing miserably = )

  • TrishJ

    Yeah, Live with Kelly is terrible. Mostly because of her. I really hope she gets something else where she fits-celebrity housewives of NJ or celebrity Bad Girls? The point is, she’s too over dramatic, unfunny, tacky, sexual and frankly disgusting ( bathroom stories, treating her sons wound with a tampon etc…) for a morning show. Too bad Michael’s onboard a sinking ship.

  • stats

    Kelly must be HEARTBROKEN over the news that her FAVOURITE SHOW JERSEY SHOW has been CANCELLED after this last season. Now after Kelly’s show is cancelled she can’t join the cast of Jersey Shore. lol

  • Marie

    Kelly is a nice person & it is difficult to make it & I don’t think this co-host will help her. This was Regis show & what a mistake they made when they wanted to cut his salary as I read in TV Guide that Kelly was actually making more than Regis. I use to love their chit chat, now I never watch it. I don’t watch any other talk shows as I really don’t care for them.

    Kelly Ripa is an over paid overrated talk show host/actress. She has no boobs and what she has looks bad because of over working out. And people say what nice legs and butt she has. Give me a break. I live in Vancouver, Canada and I can walk down the street and see tons of babes that have great legs and butt AND a nice rack to boot. Much nice than OLIVE OIL RIPA.

  • Joan

    stats, I live in Ontario, Canada. My husband has a friend who lives in McKenzie BC They talk on the phone once in a while.Anyway, back to SKINNY MINNIR. Around here, people do not think she has a cute butt or legs. They say she has no utt and her legs are like toothpicks. They worry about her health. I would like to see her eat a cheeseburger. You know, I send letters in to Kellys inbox and they never read them. I wonder why. lol

  • stats

    Hey Joan, I’m from Ontario, Canada and go there lots since my family is there and I have a rock band I play in there. I’m a drummer/real estate business. I agree with what you said about Kelly and her butt and legs, but I have read many blogs where people think she does have those things. And you know why they never read your letters to Kelly’s inbox. lol
