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

  • NBC Fan

    I like Kelly Ripa

  • Flarikker

    WoW….No Ellen in top 25. Usually her and “Live with Kelly & Michael” go head to head. Maybe interrupted by NCAA basketball?

  • Big Apple

    Michael looks a lot happier this week NOT having Kelly Ripa sitting next to him.

  • Morri

    I think overall Kelly Ripa has hurt the show. She does not have good interview skills and neither does Michael. She also comes across as a phony.
    I am sure that the guests sees it that way also with all the phony compliments. KR compliments almost all of her guests as being the verty BEST in their field. Someone needs to tell her she does not have to compliment every guest that comes on the show. Eventually it will come across as phony.

  • Chris

    Yes kelly is so bad that they ratings are higher than they were during Regis’s last season.

  • Kit

    Yes Kelly is really bad, the ratings are up because of Michael. She contributes nothing to the show except acting like a giddy teenager.
    Of course the guests see right through her, everyone is her favorite, every song is her favorite.She is such a phoney.
    The sexual inuendos between her and Michael are disgusting. She is all over him.
    Again, the ratings are up because MS has a lot of fans. You never saw so many men in the audience and they aren’t there to see Kelly that’s for sure.

  • Morri

    They make such a big deal out of winning an Emmy. It is more than a coincidence that they won the same year that Regis was leaving the show.
    I would like to see the show win again, without Regis. I agree about her sexual inuendos, she does not behave like a happily married woman or even an adult.

  • Cha Cha

    Although I was not a big fan of Regis, he did his homework on guest and he did very decent interviews. Today, how much I wish the show is cancelled.
