Syndication Ratings: Advice-Seekers Turn to 'Dr. Oz' as New Year Gets Underway
Magazines get boost from coverage of Anthony video diary

It was Dr. Oz's turn to be on top in the week ending Jan. 8, the first week of the New Year and primetime for the good doctor as viewers tune in for help with their health and fitness resolutions.

Among the first-run rookies, Warner Bros.' Anderson went into reruns, slipping 8% to a 1.2...

(Blogger's note - 'Anderson' was only in reruns 3 of the 5 days. Monday and Wednesday of that week were new shows and dealt with resolution solutions and getting failure out of your life.)

Some of Anderson's Favorite Books:
1. EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE BY JONATHAN SAFRAN FOER
One of my all time favorites. I love the main character of this book, a little boy who has lost his father on 9/11. It is heartbreaking at times, but is ultimately about survival and family and the bonds between people that never break.

2. HEART OF DARKNESS BY JOSEPH CONRAD
It’s a classic. I first read it in high school and it sparked my interest in traveling to the far reaches of our planet. It’s about what can happen to people when everything we think we are is stripped away.

3. THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF KAVALIER & CLAY: A NOVEL BY MICHAEL CHABON
This won a Pulitzer Prize back in 2001. It’s about two cousins who join the comic book business during the time Hitler was conquering Europe. Chabon is a great writer and I’ve read a number of his books, all of which I recommend.

4. THE ALIENIST BY CALEB CARR
A murder mystery set in old New York. It really takes you back in time and I wish they would make it into a movie because I think it could be a great one.

5. A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY BY JOHN IRVING
I love “The World According To Garp” by Irving, but this book of his is my favorite. I remember finishing it on an airplane and I think I burst out crying and was terribly embarrassed. It’s so good!

Not in the top 25, now that is telling even if the show had a few days of reruns.

Meatloaf IS very different now than he used to be. I've seen him on Ghost Hunters and he is really very intelligent, just thought I'd pass that along.

Anderson's Favorite Books - I'm glad ATA posted this because two of the books on the list are also my favorite books: The Alienist by Caleb Carr and A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving.

Anderson stated he'd like to see an Alienist movie and I would too but only if it's done right. A Prayer for Owen Meany was made into a movie (retitiled Simon Birch on John Irving's request) but the book is so much better than the movie; the movie is the Hallmark card version of the book.

I'll have to look into the other books on the list.

Yes, I agree.
Not being in the top 25 is very telling and slipping, even when all the shows are not rerun.
I suspect Anderson will never emerge from the 1 million.2 or.3. category.
Those that are watching will continue to do so, and those who never made it their habit, will not.
Good for Kelly getting a 3.5 million and in the top 25 without Regis. A clear winner.
If Anderson had it to do over, I think he would have approached Disney and showed interest in Live.
He's too used to having things just
fall into his lap.
Sometimes you have to take the extra step and humble yourself.
Dana Carvey was on with Kelly today and he seemed quite at ease in the co-host position.
Some co-hosts have really been ill suited.
