Syndication Ratings: Syndies Stunted By March Madness, Daylight Savings

Most syndicated shows declined in the week ending March 18, thanks in large part to Daylight Savings Time, which drew viewers away from their set. In addition, the annual NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament tipped off and caused numerous preemptions for some strips, particularly those cleared on CBS affiliates.

Among the closely-watched talk shows, Dr. Phil, which was bumped by basketball 41 times in the metered markets, and Dr. Oz tied for the lead at a 2.6. Dr. Phil maintained the advantage in total viewers, averaging 77,000 more per show than Oz. Dr. Phil fell 10% from the week before, but was still up 24% year-to-year. Dr. Oz declined 4% from the prior week.

Live! With Kelly, Ellen and Maury all shed 4% to a 2.5, 2.3 and 2.3, respectively. Rachael Ray retreated 7% to a 1.4, while The Doctors slipped 13% to a 1.4. Jerry Springer softened 7% to a 1.4. Steve Wilkos fell the most, tumbling 14% to a 1.2. Wendy Williams and the already-canceled Nate Berkus were both unchanged at a 1.0 each.
Anderson topped the first-run newcomers for the 27th straight week, holding steady at a 1.4, even though it was preempted 15 times in the metered markets. Jeremy Kyle and We the People were flat at 0.6 and 0.4, respectively.
