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

    I wish this list were the top 100. It would get really interesting to see how low down the list you would go where a show was drawing oly 500,000 viewers.

    Ellen has been doing really well this season.

    I’m sure we’ll be in for a dramatic change when the ratings for the week ending on St. Patrick’s Day come in. In my neck of the woods, it’s been ‘Judge Judy’, ‘Jeff Probst’, ‘Dr. Oz’, and ‘ET’ that’ll be pre-empted for March Madness…
