“Family Feud” spent a second consecutive week atop the syndicated rankings in the week of Feb. 13-19. The show — which has also been the No. 1 game show in syndication for better than nine months — earned a 7.5 household rating to stave off “Judge Judy” (7.2).
“Dr. Phil” (3.8) came down two tenths of a point from the previous week’s season high but was still the No. 1 talk show by a healthy margin over “Live with Kelly” (2.4).

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.
