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

    Great to see ‘CASTLE’ 21st for the week. Not sure if the series has ever been on this list before this week.

  • Joan

    Kelly is not growing old gracefully. Her face is really getting long.I think she needs some boto

  • Big Apple

    Some botox? Kelly Ripa has made it no secret that she has regular botox injections in various parts of her body. She also colors her hair (is otherwise almost completely gray), uses hair extensions, tan wipes, etc. etc.

    Her physical appearance is almost as fake as her personality.

  • steven

    Kelly Ripa has no personality, she lies and acts like she is the greatest thing. No talent and has a filthy mind everything is about sex.
    Maybe Little Mark should stay home more.

  • Joan

    Kelly has a really bad habit of interrupting everyone. It is so annoying and I don’t know why Gelmandoesnt tell her
