Anderson Ratings News for Week Ending April 15, 2012

Ratings for week ended April 15th


From Broadcasting & Cable ~

Syndication Ratings: Syndies Rebound After April Starts Out Slow
Top talkers all see improvements in week ended April 15


Ratings for most syndicated shows were on the rise in the week ended April 15, as holidays, vacations and spring breaks came to a close and regular schedules resumed.

CBS Television Distribution's Dr. Phil rebounded 11% for the week to a 3.0 live plus same day national household rating, the show's best performance since the February sweep, and also improved 15% from last year. That put Dr. Phil firmly back on top of the talk pack, leading the genre for the 24th time this season.

In fact, the top six talkers all were up for the week. Disney-ABC's Live! With Kelly gained 8% to a 2.6 for second place, tying Sony's Dr. Oz ,which also added 8% to a 2.6. NBCUniversal's Maury tacked on 10% to a 2.3. Warner Bros.' Ellen added 5% to a 2.2. CTD's The Doctors improved 7% to a 1.6. CTD's Rachael Ray remained at a 1.5. NBCU's Jerry Springer sank 7% to a 1.3. NBCU's Steve Wilkos rose 9% to a 1.2. Debmar-Mercury's Wendy Williams weakened 9% to a 1.0, while Sony's Nate Berkus was flat at a 0.9.


Warner Bros.' rookie talker, Anderson, saw a big bump for the week, improving 17% week to week to a 1.4 live plus same day household rating. Anderson also improved 33% among women 25-54 to a 0.8.

Note: While the 17% improvement sounds like a "big bump" the previous week's 1.2 rating matched "Anderson's" lowest rating since the talk show began. This week's 1.4 rating is pretty much where the ratings have been hovering and down from the 1.5 rating for February sweeps. Please click on link for the full article.

Anderson in Washington DC on Saturday To Tape Jeopardy!

Anderson traveled to Washington, DC Saturday to be a contestant on Jeopardy! Power Players. The shows were taped and will air the week of May 14th. Anderson competed against Kelly O'Donnell and Thomas L. Friedman.

There were questions from the press and Washington DC's ABC station posted the following on their Website ~

Jeopardy! Power Players in D.C.
(click on link for full article)

Fifteen celebrity contestants tackling trivia about Washington, D.C., competing for their favorite charities—it’s Jeopardy! Power Players.

Before the taping started, nearly all of the players confessed to being nervous.

“I'm worried about this buzzer. That's what I'm worried about. I'm worried about clicking in too fast or too slow. I don't know,” said journalist and talk show host Anderson Cooper.


The winner of each round collected $50,000 in charity money. The runners-up each got $10,000.


“If I lose again, I'm a big jeopardy loser. You lose all your credibility. No, well, I don't know how much credibility I have but I lose whatever I have,” Anderson Cooper said.

and this video ~



Enjoy some photos posted by Zimbio.com





Anderson tweeted on Thursday night ~
and then again on Sunday night ~

While Anderson can't reveal the outcome until the episode airs, he appears to be practicing the Cheech Marin buzzer method in the above photo and rumor has it there's a good chance that Anderson's charity will be receiving a $50,000 check soon!

Saturday wasn't Anderson's first Jeopardy! Power Players appearance; that was on May 11, 2004. We'll have video and photos from that appearance on Sunday.

Sunday Series 4/22/12

This appearance of Anderson Cooper on Live with Regis & Kelly was his last appearance co-hosting on the syndicated talk show. Soon after it was announced Anderson would be hosting his own talk show in the Fall of 2011. Part of this program only featured Kelly because Anderson taped in advance before heading to the Gulf Coast.

Here's the clip of Host Chat ~




Next up was Spring Fling Trivia-A-Go-Go ~



Kristen Davis stopped by t0 chat with Anderson & Kelly about her new movie, Sex & The City 2 ~



And here's part 2 of her interview ~



While this segment featured Kelly at Soul Cycle, Anderson was in for the intro ~



Today began Live's Grilling Friday's "Fire House Cook-Off." Kelly taped the segment with this week's cook, but Anderson was in for the audience voting, modeling some different glasses, and announcing the contenders to appear on next Friday's edition of Live ~



For today's extras -- Anderson modeled his glasses for the audiencce and asked Kelly's opinion. He apparently has two pair. The looked to be the same frame to me, just a different color?


Kelly thought the frames were all wrong for him and offered to go with him to pick out different frames. Gellman suggested that maybe that could be a future Live segment? Throughout the show they had Anderson trying on different styles of glasses, beginning with Art's!






And ending with Kelly's!

In the end, Anderson seemed to prefer the one's he picked out.
