Why do you use household ratings here but nowhere else? Ad deals for syndicated shows are largely based on household ratings and 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, ESP = ESPN, CTD = CBS Television Distribution.

AT = Additional Time/Telecasts, more than the typical number of episodes or time periods/week.
