For the first time in two months, “Family Feud” sits alone atop the syndicated rankings.

The game show earned a 6.3 household rating for the week of Aug. 7, a tenth of a point better than “Judge Judy” (which was in repeats). The two shows tied for the lead a couple times in recent weeks, but “Feud’s” last time alone at No. 1 was the week of May 29.

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.
