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

    Go SVU Go!

    Looks like Dr. Phil is waning. Was it something new that he started doing or is it just people gradually getting tired of the man?

    Since it’s mainly a afternoon show and Live is a morning show, Dr. Phil should be getting higher ratings.

  • Big Apple

    Ripa and husband have put their NYC penthouse up for sale for $24.5 million. Too bad it doesn’t mean she’s leaving the “Live” show!

  • Joan

    Yea, the reason Live is doing so well is because of Michael. Now if they could just gey rid of “Kelly NO TALENT: Ripa and get Michael a new cohost. Yhe show would get even better ratings and would be more interesting

  • Marie

    Kelly couldn’t get those ratings if most people disliked her. I no longer watch talk shows but I do like Kelly as she is a very nice person. Frankly, the people I know have a good opinion of her.

  • Big Apple

    One reason the show gets generally acceptable ratings is because Ripa is a “train wreck” and many people enjoy looking at a “train wreck.” It’s why some of the more ridiculous reality shows do well.

    She is one of the most ignorant, naive, insecure yet narcissistic, fake (some of it is to try to come across as a “normal everyday working woman” to her more gullible viewers), etc. individuals on television.

    Quality television should not have someone like Ripa in that role. They can do much better than her but unfortunately there are a lot of poor quality television shows out there today that can get “good” ratings so why bother? She’s under contract right now anyway.

  • CarShark

    It’s amazing to see Family Feud getting these ratings. This time last year, it was getting low 3s. Now it’s getting low 5s. Never seen anything like this!

  • Chris

    Lol the show is doing well because of kelly not michael. He sucks
