judge-judy-ratings

“Judge Judy” claimed the No. 1 spot among syndicated shows for the fourth straight time in the week of Aug. 22-28. The show drew a 6.9 household rating, three tenths better than the second-place weekday strip, “Family Feud.”

“Feud” did keep another streak intact, however — it’s been No. 1 among game shows for 18 consecutive weeks. The two top-rated talk shows, “Dr. Phil” (2.3) and “Live with Kelly” (2.2), were both in reruns.

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.
