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

    Yay Wheel and Jeopardy- both topping 10m.

    What happened to the intelligent and interesting host chats we used to hear on the Kelly and Michael show? They have become just plain silly. I guess you cant use the word “intelligence” and Kelly “NO TALENT Ripa in the same sentence. And why does she always repeast herself. She says something and repeats the same thing. That is so annoying and not a goood talk show host. That is so annoying and not a good talk show host. lol

  • NBC Fan

    Svu #1 drama.

  • Marie

    If Kelly was so bad, she wouldn’t have a show. Get over your hatred.

  • Kara

    I am so so tired of the “bully” and “hate” labels if you make an observation about a celebrity! I find Kelly totally unprepared, over the top raunchy and just not good at her job. If being bad stopped people from having shows, we wouldn’t have Snooki and all of the other reality show jerks. Right now, you don’t have to have any skill or talent to have a show, and IMO kelly is awful at her job, and stunk it up badly when Regis left. She’s lucky Michael came on to save the ratings after a 20 year low, but sadly the show is still in the toilet and host chat is now adolescent and sex talk most of the time. They ruined a good thing that Regis built.

  • Katie

    Marie sorry but it is not hatred but reality that Kelly has no talent, class or intelligence. People need to get over their obsession with her. She is so self centered and the show is disgusting. She acts like a sex starved teenager. It seems to me that Michael is now slowly becoming down to her low level. It should be banned from morning Tv.

  • Big Apple

    Kelly Ripa is often an embarrassment to the television/broadcasting industry, but so are many “reality” show stars.

    It’s like she stopped maturing beyond her teens. She’s ignorant, insecure, narcissistic, etc.

  • Brielle

    I agree, Live with Kelly and Michael has become embarassing to watch.

    Host chat is one long repetitive sleazefest that Kelly seems to revel in. She is a lousy interviewer amd very juvenile in her approach to interviewing celebrities.

    This show has now lost all of the class and wit it was once famous for.

    Just more of the junk tv that is dumbing down this country.

    This show needs to go – and hopefully will be replaced by something with both originality and intelligence – and even more hopefully with a host who can actually conduct a competent and interesting interview.

    Kelly should have been let go a long time ago – she brings nothing to the table, but childish sexual innuendo, which is one ripping bore to watch.

  • Joan

    It is definitely time for Kelly to go. Today she was talking avout tampons and it was disgusting. People are eating their breakfast at that time. How low can she go?
