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

    Nice showing for Wheel and Jeopardy. Judy, too, though I haven’t really been watching this season.

  • Doug

    Ellen is really on fire – these are the best ratings of her entire run. Did she get timeslot upgrades?

  • katie

    Kelly and Michael have the worst show on TV.

  • Joan

    I agree Katie and she has the nerve to beg people to vote for her in the peoples choice awards, as if she would even have a chance to win that.
