Season premiere week on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” was a good one for the show in terms of ratings.
“Live” hit its best household rating in more than three months — 14 weeks, to be precise — the week of Sept. 4, scoring a 2.2. That beat the season-opening week for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” (2.1) by a tenth of a point.
“Dr. Phil” (3.0) remained on top of the talk-show category, and “Judge Judy” finished first overall with a 6.5.

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.
