Thanksgiving week was a mostly down frame in the syndication rankings — with the notable exception of the No. 1 show, “Judge Judy.”
The series scored a season-high 7.5 household rating for the week (airing Monday-Wednesday only) and ran its winning streak to 17 weeks. “Family Feud” and “Dr. Phil” stayed atop their respective game-show and talk-show categories.

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.
