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

    Kelly “NO TALENT” Ripa is the worse talk show host ever and she looks like a stick figure with a large head

  • chris23

    WOW Joan are you sure your not the person with a stick figure needing removed? A lot of hostility toward Ripa.. lol

    On another note, All the shows I like in syndication are doing great..

    Wheel of Fortune as always on top, Judge Judy (I would say everybody must love the tough love, but its just “tough” with no love and a lot of common sense), and Ellen who is truly hilarious. I always youtube her talkshow videos I have always liked her. Not to mention she scored with Portia as her wife she is one hot momma! Yeah I know it didn’t sound as corny in my head as I was typing but oh well good thing I don’t care what people think!

    Big Bang Theory is a beast everywhere wow! I’m surprised Family Feud is in top ten. I like the show I just didn’t know it was still on the air… Law and Order is doing great in syndication SVU almost does the same amount of viewers in Syn, as they do brand new on NBC. Either way it is still doing decent in primetime and obviously great in Syndication as well!

    “Wheel of Fortune as always on top”
    This is actually the first week in long time that Wheel of Fortune is #1.

    You wonder why someone always has something negative to say about Kelly as it is getting old. You hate her fine but most people like her including me even though I don’t watch talk shows. I use to watch AMC & did watch the chatting on Regis & Kelly.

  • DK

    I wouldn’t say ‘most people’ like her. I see more negative than positive comments about her in a lot of places, not just here.

  • AF

    Wheel may not be the highest rated most weeks.30 seasons in firstrun syndication pulling a 7.8 & over 12 million viewers still not to shabby.
