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

  • JR35

    Ellen’s show at 3.7 million viewers? Movin’ on up.

  • Mike

    Good to see Dr. Oz back in the top 25.

  • LC

    How many times has ‘SVU’ been in the Top 10?

  • Joan

    Michael should win the hall of fame and Kelly : NO TALENT: Ripa should be in the hall of lame

  • Mike

    They are saving that position for all of your lame same old comments each week Joan.

  • Joan

    Mike, She is not a good talk show host- she stutters and stammers and repeats herself and she cant dance and she definitely cant sing. So, all I have to say to you is[ Does the truth hurt?

  • Mike

    How is ur opinion the truth? It’s not it’s an opinion, and many people out there have a different opinion.

    I have no problem with Kelly but you sure do. I bet it hurts you that she has a big paying daytime talk show job that has garnered her many fans. I’m sure that she cries herself to sleep every night that you don’t like her. I’m sure that her husband, her kids, her many fans, and her big bucks console her though.

  • Joan

    Yes Mile, It is MY opinion, So just GROW UP.
    What exactly is her talent?
    See you next week Mike

  • Jul

    Gotta agree withe Joan…She is just annoying and not funny at all…Not sure if it is an act or not but she acts like a complete bimbo…

  • Big Apple

    Ripa is a very naive, ignorant, insecure, narcissistic person with very poor broadcasting skills especially for someone in the business so long. It’s like she stopped maturing when she left home in her late teens.

  • Naomi

    You’re so right on, Joan.

  • aok98

    I’m glad to see FF enjoying such good ratings.

  • Ed

    Makes me sad to not see Seinfeld in the top 25.

  • Mark3

    Family feud is so much fun! I always watch. Good ratings too after 37is years:)
