'Anderson' Weekly Ratings News for Week Ending January 15, 2012

For week ending January 15th ~

From Broadcasting & Cable ~

Syndication Ratings: As Winter's Cold Takes Hold, Syndies Heat Up
'Phil' takes back talkers, 'Judy' hits season high and 'Big Bang' keeps exploding


With the holidays over and winter in full swing, several syndicated series hit season highs in the week ending Jan. 15.

CBS Television Distribution's Dr. Phil took the talk crown back from Dr. Oz, adding 10% to hit a 3.2 live plus same day average household rating, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Sony's Dr. Oz was steady in second place at a 3.0, but was the top talker among the key women 25-54 demographic at a 1.8, a series high for Oz in the demo. Disney-ABC's Live! with Kelly also was flat at a 2.7 and Warner Bros.' Ellen at a 2.4. Ellen tied NBCUniversal's Maury, which softened 4% to a 2.4, although it remained the top talker among women and adults 18-34 and 18-49 for the 33rd week in a row.

CTD's Rachael Ray held steady at its season high 1.8. CTD's The Doctors improved 7% to a 1.6, and jumped 50% among women 18-34. NBCUniversal's Jerry Springer slipped 6% to a 1.5. Debmar-Mercury's Wendy Williams, back in original episodes, rose 27% to hit a new season high 1.4.

Wendy was particularly strong in demos, tying for fourth among women 18-49 with Live! and Ellen at a 1.1, a 57% week to week increase. Wendy came in sixth among women 25-54, also at a 1.1, a 38% increase, and the show came in second among women 18-34 at a 1.0, a 67% increase for the week.


Warner Bros.' Anderson had the biggest gain of any rookie first-run show, shooting 25% from the prior week to a new series high 1.5, and for the first time tied 20-year veteran Jerry Springer. In addition, Anderson grew 29% among women 25-54 to a 0.9.
(please click on link for the full article)


Blogger's Note - While it sounds good to say 'Anderson' saw a 25% gain, when working with small numbers, percentages can be mis-leading. Last week 'Anderson' matched it's lowest 1.2 mark of the season and this week matched it's highest 1.5 mark of the season. It's the first time 'Anderson' has been compared with the Jerry Springer show! It seems that 'Anderson' has yet to break through and steadily gain an audience.


From TV by the Numbers ~

Syndicated TV Ratings: 'Wheel Of Fortune' Stays Ahead Of 'Judge Judy;' 'Dr. Phil' Is Top Talk Show
Dr. Phil edged Dr. Oz for top talk show honors though Dr. Oz had its best week ever with women 25-54 (and was the top talk show in that demographic).

'Anderson' is not ranked in the top 25 syndicated show (nor has it ever been), but his link gives perspective for where some of his competition ranks....
(please click on link for the full article)


Also ~

There is an article from Broadcasting & Cable that is for subscribers only, but their home page listed this tease ~

Time to Talk The Talk -- Finally

Talk shows will be all the talk this fall, with four new entries—Katie, Steve Harvey, Ricki Lake and Jeff Probst—prepping to join established shows Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Rachael Ray, The View and Live! With Kelly and He Who Shall Be Named, as well as talkers still struggling to secure a foothold: The Talk,The Chew, The Revolution, Anderson Cooper, Jeremy Kyleand Wendy Williams.
