hot-bench-ratings

The top of the syndicated rankings for March 28-April 3 look like they pretty much always do: “Judge Judy,” “Family Feud,” “Wheel of Fortune.” A little farther down, however, is the season’s biggest gainer among daytime strips.

Court show “Hot Bench” scored a 2.6 household rating for the week. That’s up a 0.2 from the previous week, and year over year, the show has grown by 53 percent.

Why do you use household ratings here but nowhere else?
Ad deals for syndicated shows are largely based on household ratings and, for daytime shows, ratings among women 25-54.

What about “The Simpsons”? “Simpsons” repeats in syndication are not counted in the weekly ratings because they don’t include any national advertising.

“Weekend Adventure” is a package of nature shows airing weekends on many ABC stations.

For syndicated shows airing on multiple days, the viewership is the average of all telecasts.

Distributor key: DAD = Disney ABC Domestic Television, SPT= Sony Pictures Television, 2/T=Twentieth Television, WB = Warner Bros., CTD = CBS Television Distribution, NBU = NBCUniversal.

AT = Additional Time/Telecasts, more than the typical number of episodes or time periods/week.
