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

  • Joan

    Just what exactly is Kelly Ripas talent. She cant dance or sing and she is a horrible talk show host. If it werent for Michael, that show would be long gone.I guess they keep her around for a sidekick and people love a train wreck

  • Mike

    Joan, What did Kelly Ripa ever do to you? Steal your imaginary husband. I have seen people with odd fascinations with folks before but your constant hatred for this lady just makes you come off as a bitter old lady.

    I’m sure Kelly Ripa cries herself to sleep every night knowing how much you hate her.

    Oh by the way how is America’s Choice Ellen doing. Several weeks she didn’t even make it in the Top 25 and since she came back Kelly and Michael continues to beat her.

  • eden

    While Ellen has not got the ratings of Dr Phil or the others, she actually makes TWICE what Dr Phil makes in adverting revenue. From the networks point of view she is one of the most successful shows on TV. Because her audience is the richest audience in all of TV and spend up big. She’s also the ONLY show of any type to have raised ratings over the last 10 years. All other shows that have been going that long have about halved their ratings because of the internet and other competition. Ellen is THE most successful shows on TV in terms of continuing popularity.

  • Big Apple

    Kelly Ripa can be so bad that she becomes amusing to watch, in the “is she for real?” pathetic sense. All of the umms, uhhhs, mispronounced words, ignorance, teenager mentality, etc.

  • Brielle

    Ripa is a repetive bore……no interviewing skills and the only way she knows how to be funny or witty is to turn on the sleaze.

    For a forty-something woman she is really an immature twit – really superficial take on everything.

    I agree, she’s so bad she’s amusing to watch – though lately even that isn’t worth it. Definitely the dumbing down of America.

  • Cissie

    How can they justify paying an idiot all that money.
    Kelly Ripa has no talent and the only things she does is read newpaper articles. I hesitate to say read because she seems to have a problem in that department also. She umms and ahhs and misspells words and makes something sexual about most everything.
    That show is unwatchable. I think most people watch it just to see what stupid thing she is going to say.

  • Mike

    Eden, I have no problem with Ellen. I enjoy her show. It’s just that the Kelly Ripa haters and cry babies keep throwing up that Ellen is the People’s choice winner all the time.

    I love all the Kelly haters though. They are great for a good laugh. I’m sure that Kelly Ripa laughs every time she cashes her check and sees the ratings each week.

    Some people are so sad with their jealousy.

  • Big Apple

    And some people are so sad with their absurd jealousy theory. There is just nothing to be jealous about regarding Kelly Ripa.

  • Joan

    Mike, Noone is jealous of Kelly Ripa, Why would they be?That is just plain bull. I am just trying to find out what her talent is and nobody seems to know

  • Steve

    I agree there is nothing to be jealous of as far as Ripa is concerned. So she has a lot of money who cares.
    Who would be jealous of stupidy, looking like a skeleton and married to a loser.

  • mopcambm

    I have always liked Kelly Ripa. I thought she was adorable with Regis, but there is simply no chemistry with her and Michael. I stopped watching the show because it is boring. Michael is a great sport’s announcer, but Kelly has better chemistry with some of the other men that she co-hosted with, like Anderson Cooper, Neil Patrick Harris, and Jerry O’Connell. I think Kelly is gorgeous and fun, but she needs a better choice for a co-host.
