via press release:



New York, May 15, 2012 – New Yorkers love the syndicated episodes of “30 Rock,” which is set in Midtown Manhattan at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. In fact, ratings for “30 Rock” have increased 60 percent over the show it replaced, megahit “The Simpsons” (WNYW at 11:30 pm daily), in the first full week (ending May 6) of the all-important May sweep.


“30 Rock” also spiked in the demos compared to what “The Simpsons” did a year earlier, beating the animated hit series by 83% among both women aged 18 to 49 and 25 to 54.


For the country as a whole, “30 Rock” was the second highest rated new, off-network sitcom in syndication – behind only “Big Bang Theory” — for the week ending May 6, growing 8% from the week before to a 1.3 national rating.


The show, which is distributed by NBC-Universal Television, averages about 2-million viewers daily in syndication and stars Long Island native Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey.
