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.
