Fueled by guests Jay Leno and Rosie O’Donnell, Oprah topped judge Judy for the first time in ten weeks in the week ending January 31.
Legend of the Seeker Fans: Seeker saw its second best viewer averages of the season with 2.581 million for the weekend of January 30-31. The updated table for Season two’s ratings is below the normal syndicated top 25 table.
WWE Friday Night Smackdown! Fans: Smackdown! didn’t make the top 25 (it was #30), but the telecast on January 29 averaged 3.463 million and a 2.2 household rating.
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 (in other words, the WWE Friday Night Smackdown! is for January 29, not February 5).
