“Family Feud” remained at No. 1 among weekday syndicated shows for the week of June 13-19. It drew a 6.6 household rating, topping a week of “Judge Judy” reruns (5.9) by seven tenths of a point. “Feud” also led the game-show category for the eighth week in a row.
Continuing coverage of the Orlando terrorist shootings early in the week resulted in a number of pre-emptions.

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.
