Ratings for the week ended January 13, 2013 ~
From Broadcasting & Cable:
Syndication Ratings: New Year, Big Ratings for Top Talk and Game Shows'Dr. Phil' returns to top of talk chart, while 'Wheel,' 'Jeopardy!' and 'Family Feud' all hit highs
Syndies came roaring back in the week ending Jan. 13, with the repeat-laden holidays finally behind them.
In its return to originals, CBS Television Distribution's Dr. Phil gained 23%, the biggest weekly improvement of any top-ten talk show, averaging a 3.2 live plus same day household rating for the week, according to Nielsen Media Research. Dr. Phil improved 39% over its ratings in the week ended Dec. 30.
Warner Bros.' Ellen also came back to life. Taking over the No. 2 spot, Ellen surged 17% for the week and 13% from the same week last year to a 2.7. Disney-ABC's Live! with Kelly and Michael, which had enjoyed three straight weeks at No. 1, declined just 4% for the week to a 2.6. Sony Pictures Television's Dr. Oz added 13% to hit a new season-high 2.6, tying Live! for third place.
NBCUniversal's Maury perked up 5% to a 2.3. CTD's Rachael Ray receded 6% to a 1.5, in a three-way tie with NBCU's Steve Wilkos, which was unchanged for the week but improved 15% over last year at this time to earn talk's largest year-to-year increase, and NBCU's Jerry Springer, which added 7% for the week. CTD's The Doctors held steady at a 1.4.
Debmar-Mercury's Wendy Williams climbed 18% for the week to a 1.3. Warner Bros.' Anderson Live was unchanged at a 1.2. And Debmar-Mercury's Jeremy Kyle climbed 20%, or one tenth of a ratings point, to a 0.6.
All of the rookie talkers -- except Jeff Probst, which was steady -- also saw gains during the week.
Disney-ABC's Katie clocked its best rating in eight weeks, growing 5% from its previous session to hit a 2.0, its second-highest week ever. Katie scored a big get for Thursday, Jan. 24, with an exclusive with Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, reportedly the victim of an Internet hoax that led him to believe he had a girlfriend who tragically died of leukemia last September.
NBCU's Steve Harvey, now definitely returning for next season and currently being renewed in some markets through 2016, hit a series high, leaping 14% to a 1.6. CTD's Jeff Probst was flat at a 0.8. Twentieth's Ricki Lake added 14% to tie Probst at a 0.8. NBCU's Trisha Goddard jumped 25% to a 0.5. (please click on link for the full article)
