entertainment-tonight-syndie-ratings

“Entertainment Tonight” hit a five-week ratings high for the week of April 18-24, getting the biggest bump (6 percent, up to a 3.3 ratings in households) among newsmagazines. The death of music legend Prince partly fueled the increase.

“Judge Judy” (6.7) remained the top weekday strip despite airing a week of reruns, and “Wheel of Fortune” (6.3) was the No. 1 game show.

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.
