Judge Judy was the top regular weekday syndicated program in Household ratings for the seventh week straight, while Wheel of Fortune again got the edge with total viewers for the week ending October 13, 2013.

Dr Phil was top rated talk show.

We've entered the wacky time of year when Nielsen counts the local broadcast of the Monday Night Football games as syndicated shows and while it is syndicated to the local markets of the teams playing, Nielsen also includes the numbers from ESPN so MNF will always put them at the top of the list, pay no attention to them. Weekend Adventure is a package of nature shows airing weekends on many ABC stations.

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

    Hey, MF is doing pretty well relatively to Bang, unlike on basic cable.

  • Robbee 66

    Who watches this horrible judge jerky, anyway?

  • david

    Does anybody know how Saf3 is doing? Saf3 is the action adventure sindicated show that airs in local sindication on the weekends for people that don’t know.

  • queeueeq

    How do you reaf these numbers?

  • queeueeq

    How do you read these numbers?

  • The Cool Max

    @Queeueeq > Very Easy .. Total viewers are in the column to the right.

  • Benz

    MF is doing better in this syndication field than it is on USA. USA just paid way tto much money for the numbers its getting on there. I think with MF its in the best timeslots possible on most affiliates not sure about tis staying power long-term like BBT, Men, and Family Guy.

    @ david: I would like to see the ratings for SAF3 also, I’m starting to like this show reminds me so much of Baywatch.

  • Renz

    @zach36 The Price is Right is on CBS only it is not syndicated. Example of syndication: In New York City , Judge Judy airs on CBS in Spokane Washington , Judge Judy is on NBC. Syndicators sell their shows to multiple networks. CBS does not offer Price is Right to ABC, NBC, FOX , The CW , My Network TV or local TV stations that are not apart of those

  • Rj Sheedy

    How’s Arsenio doing in the ratings?

  • david

    I agree Saf3 does have a bay watch kind of feel to it. I hope we find out how it is doing.
