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

    Just out of interest, how many viewers does The Simpsons average in Syndication, if you have them???

    what the heck is ‘Weekend Adventure’?

  • dkp

    I’m guessing Weekend Adventure is Litton’s Weekend Adventure which is a children’s programming block that airs on Saturday mornings on most ABC stations. If that’s not it, then I have no idea.

  • JR35

    While Big Bang and Judy have impressive numbers, the numbers for Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy probably are even more impressive, airing once per station M-F.

  • Jonathan

    Could Weekend Adventure be a movie?

    I know showings of movies often have weird names because they name it after a weekly slot.

  • The Cool Max

    No. Weekend Adventure is the Jack Hanna nature shows, which are syndicated.
