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

    Can anyone explain to me the appeal of Judge Judy? A woman, 71 years old, judging the most ridiculous cases with a nasty attitude. The show pays both parties to be there and whatever decision is made, the show also pays out the judgement. I just don’t understand how it has been on for SO many years and still does so well.

  • The Shy Cookie

    I never miss an episode of Judge Judy. She’s like the intelligent, rude grandmother I wish I had.

    To me it is just a simple show that you don’t really have to invest in. Just easy entertainment. You can laugh at how stupid some of the folks are. Wait for them to get their comeuppance from Judge Judy for being so stupid. She gets to say a lot of things to people that so many wish they could say to others. It does come on during daytime hours in some places, but in most areas it is on opposite the news, programming targeted at teens & kids, or reruns of shows that people have already seen a 1000 times. You can come home, turn it on, get dinner ready, make sure the kids have done their homework, etc. and get your laughs and entertainment at the same time.
