“Judge Judy” was in reruns the week of June 5, but the show still scored a narrow ratings win among syndicated strips.

“Judy” delivered a 6.5 household rating for the week, just good enough to top “Family Feud’s” 6.4 and knock the game show from its perch atop the ratings the previous week.

“Dr. Phil,” also in repeats for the week, earned a 2.7 and maintained its spot as the top syndicated talk show. “Live with Kelly and Ryan” (2.1) edged “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” (2.0) for second in the category.

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.
