Based on National ratings for the week of October 22, 2012, “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” ranked as the No. 2 syndicated talk show for the week in both Households (2.5) and Total Viewers (3.245 million) for the 6th week in a row, topping “Ellen” (2.4 rating and 3.237 million) on each week in both Nielsen measures.
- “LIVE” equaled its highest rating in 8 months among Women 25-54 – since the week of 2/27/12.
- On average for the 2012-13 season to date, “LIVE” is up over the comparable weeks last season by 20% in Women 18-49 and by 7% in Women 25-54, marking its biggest numbers through this point in any season in 5 years – since the 2007-08 season.
