Syndication Ratings: 'Dr. Phil' Takes November
Superstorm Sandy sends most syndies downward in sweep
Dr. Phil won its first November sweep in its 11-year history, finally coming out from under Oprah's shadow to definitely claim the talk-show crown.
During the November sweep, which ran Oct. 25 to Nov. 21, CBS Television Distribution's Dr. Phil averaged a 3.2 live plus same day household rating, according to Nielsen Media Research .That's flat compared to last year, but at an average of more than 4.3 million viewers a day, it's up more than 800,000 viewers a day over the second-place finisher, Disney-ABC's Live! with Kelly and Michael. Phil also was the reigning talk show among women 25-54, up 6% to a 1.9 in the key daytime demographic.
Live! was down 18% from last year at this time, but with the show feting long-time host Regis Philbin as he made his exit after more than 28 years on the job, that's not unexpected. Warner Bros.' Ellen made a late charge to finish the sweep in third place, adding 4% from last year to a 2.6 in households and 13% to a 1.8 among women 25-54, second to Phil.
Sony's Dr. Oz dropped to fourth place from last November to tie NBCUniversal's Maury, dropping 14% to a 2.4 in households. Maury was steady in households, and led all talkers among both women 18-49 and women 18-34 at a 1.6 and 1.4, respectively. In total viewers, Maury beat Dr. Oz by 24,000 viewers on a per-show average.
In sixth place, Disney-ABC's newcomer Katie averaged a 1.9, and was the only rookie to drop from its debut, down 5% from September.
CTD's Rachael Ray was next in line at a 1.6, down 6% from last year. NBCU's Steve Wilkos grew the most of any talk show, gaining 15% from last November to a 1.5 and tying NBCU's steady Jerry Springer. CTD's The Doctors dipped 7% to a 1.4.
NBCU's rookie Steve Harvey added 8% from its September premiere to a 1.3 in households, and advanced 13% to a 0.9 among women 25-54, one-tenth of a point behind Katie's 1.0 in the key demo.
Warner Bros.' Anderson Live!, which will end its run after this season, gave back 21% to a 1.1. Debmar-Mercury's Wendy Williams weakened 17% to a 1.0. Freshmen CTD's Jeff Probst and Twentieth's Ricki Lake each posted 0.7s, remaining even with their September premieres. Debmar-Mercury's Jeremy Kyle was flat at a 0.6, and NBCU's new Trisha climbed 25% -- or one-tenth of a ratings point -- from its September debut to a 0.5. (please click on link for full article)
