The second week of “Live with Kelly and Ryan” returned to the show’s usual levels after a bit of a bump for new host Ryan Seacrest’s debut.
The show earned a 2.2 rating in households for the week of May 8, down from a 2.5 for Seacrest’s first week with Kelly Ripa. The 2.2 is in line with the show’s prior average with Ripa as the sole permanent host. It finished second among syndicated talk shows for the week, behind “Dr. Phil’s” 3.3.
“Judge Judy” stayed at the top of the overall rankings with a 6.7 in households, half a point better than “Family Feud’s” 6.2.

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.
