celebrity-name-game-ratings

The top of the syndicated ratings for the week of Dec. 7-13 look pretty much as they always do: “Judge Judy” on top (for the 25th week), “Wheel of Fortune” in second. Outside the Top 25, though, there was a first.

“Celebrity Name Game” scored a 1.3 household rating for the week, moving it ahead of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” (1.2) for the first time. It’s the No. 4 game show for the week, behind “Wheel,” “Family Feud” (6.4) and “Jeopardy” (6.3). “Dr. Phil” and “Live with Kelly and Michael” tied for the No. 1 daytime talk show at 2.9.

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.
