Syndication Ratings: Syndies Stay Steady on Eve of November SweepAll talk rookies, including 'Katie,' flat week to week. (November sweeps started October 25th.)
Syndies largely ran in place in the week ended Oct. 21, in the lull before the start of the November sweep on Oct. 25.
Only one talk show was up for the week, CBS Television Distribution's Dr. Phil, which improved 4% for the week and year to a 2.9 live plus same day household rating. Dr. Phil and NBCUniversal's Steve Wilkos were the only two talk shows to be up compared to last year, with Wilkos adding 8% for the year to a 1.3, although the show fell 7% compared to the prior week.
As for the rest of the talkers, Disney-ABC's Live! with Kelly and Michael held steady at a 2.6 in second place and equaled last year's performance at this time when Regis Philbin was headed into his last month on the show. Warner Bros.' Ellen, which has had the show's strongest start in its ten-year history, dipped 8% to a 2.2, tying Sony's Dr. Oz, which also fell back 8%. NBCU's Maury dropped 5% to a 2.1 in households, although it led among women 18-49 at a 1.4.
CTD's Rachael Ray and The Doctors, and NBCU's Jerry Springer all held firm at a 1.4. Warner Bros.' Anderson Live!, which will end its run after this season, was flat at a 1.1. Debmar-Mercury's Wendy Williams weakened 9% to a 1.0, while the syndicator's Jeremy Kyle remained flat at a 0.5.
All of the rookie talkers stood still for the week. Disney-ABC's Katie remained at a 1.9, its best rating since its 2.0 debut week. NBCU's Steve Harvey stayed at a 1.3, while CTD's Jeff Probst and Twentieth's Ricki Lake both averaged a 0.7, and NBCU's Trisha held at a 0.5. (Please click on link for full article.)

Anderson Cooper talk show canceled
The CNN host's talk show is a victim of the low ratings that have plagued it since its debut in fall 2011. Season to date through Oct. 16, "Anderson" is averaging 1.3 million viewers, down 20 percent from last fall. That compares with 4 million for top-rated "Dr. Phil" and 2.4 million for this season's most-watched newcomer, Katie Couric. (Please click on link for full article.)
Note: For those interested; in the same week last year, 'Anderson' had a 1.4 HH rating.
