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

  • RLH

    Ratings for Katie?

  • Mary Amos

    I would also like to knowwhere Katie rates.

  • Nick

    Hmm. I thought Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy would get at least 7s now that there in new episodes.

  • RLH

    The 1.1 million total viewership spread between WoF and Jeopardy is quite lower than it was in the past 2-3 years. I seem to remember a spread of 2+ million viewers separating them in prior seasons.

  • Ginger Eliz

    Katie got a 1.8 household rating. She had a 2.0 last week.

  • JR

    Why does Jeopardy have “AT” next to it? It and Wheel of Fortune do not benefit from multiple daily telecasts like other shows, correct?

  • Reed Addison

    Katie bombed! Didn’t even make the top 25 and they had Barbra Streisand.

    Good for Ellen at #25

    Whitney won’t get into syndication until 2015, the networks will have to wait a long time for another multi-cam to surface for syndication. Mike & Molly should be ready in 2014 I believe though so that’s the good news.

  • THE OLD MAN

    So glad Judge Judy #3, she knows how to handle the 18-49 demo in her “playpen”

  • Laura

    Does anyone know where to find the ratings for Anderson Cooper?

  • Ginger Eliz

    Look a few topics up where they talk about Katie’s ratings. Anderson’s ratings are mentioned in that article. 1.0 household, 1,295,000 viewers.

  • LC

    Maybe My Network TV will get lucky with ‘Numb3rs’ when it airs against the presidential debate on four networks tonight! (Actually, the latter is still on TV right now as of this posting…)

  • Joan

    Michael and Kelly OH MY GOSH NO TALENT Ripa are slowly going downhill.Michael has brought some class to the show and he has a lot of friends in the business that he can bring on the show to interview. Whatever happened to the host chats? Now they just read articles from the paper and we have already read a lot of them and Kelly is just plain sickening. She tries to talk and ahe stuttters and stammers and repeats herself. Gelman, please give her a vacation.Today they had a section about a cake thief. I think maybe five year olds might like. It was pathetic.

  • Derick

    so “good for Ellen” at #25, but Katie “bombed” a couple notches below that? stop the hating…

  • stats

    “It’s LIVE WITH “OH MY GOSH” AND MICHAEL. This show is so bad it hurts to even watch it for a 10 minute stretch. I think RIPA has been wearing padded bras when I do check the show out. She has no boobs at all. I can’t wait until this show SINKS into oblivion where it belongs. HAVE ANOTHER DRINK KELLY. I know you like to drink lots. It shows on your face. lol

  • Joan

    I agree with everything you said stats. And this morning they were talking about some women eating hair and chalk and I just about puked. It was disgusting nad I was eating breakfast. How low can they go. And Kellys singing was absolutely HORRIBLE

  • jane

    Joan, you should do what i did and take LIVE off of your dvr. I realized it was not going to get any better. I miss the laughs that there used to be when Regis told a story. I had been a faithful viewer for years and when Regis was on he carried the host chat

  • stats

    What bothers me LOTS these days is that KELLY makes $10 million a year for being a HORRIBLE talk show host, and meanwhile the NHL is LOCKED OUT and the players don’t make anywhere near what Kelly makes. And these guys are PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES that actually EARN their millions. Not like Kelly OH MY GOSH Ripa. It’s disgusting.

  • TrishJ

    Live with Kelly and Michael is pathetic-because of Kelly. Don’t watch anymore. Good for Ellen.

  • david

    I wonder how The First Family and Mr. Box Office did in first run sindication.

  • DK

    @stats: According to media reports, No-Talent Ripa actually makes $20 million a year.
