Syndication Ratings: 'Katie' Scores with Manti Te'o InterviewSeveral shows, including 'Wendy Williams' and 'The Big Bang Theory,' see series highs as syndies head into February sweeps
Disney-ABC's Katie's exclusive interview with Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, who fell for a girl that turned out to be an Internet hoax, drove the freshman talker to a new series high in the week ended Jan. 27.... Katie, hosted by Katie Couric, scored a 2.2 live plus same day household rating for the week...
Katie and most other daytime shows were broken out on Monday, Jan. 21, for the second inauguration of President Obama, which also was also the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
Among the rest of the syndicated rookies, NBCUniversal's Steve Harvey remained at its series-high 1.6 for a third straight week. Twentieth's Ricki Lake, which won't return next season, gained 14% to a 0.8. CBS Television Distribution's Jeff Probst, meanwhile, dipped 13% to a 0.7. NBCUniversal's recently renewed Trisha Goddard held steady at its series-high 0.6 set in the prior week.
CTD's Dr. Phil grew 3% from the prior week to a 3.3, and finished first among daytime's key demographic of women 25-54, growing 6% to a 1.8.
National ratings for Dr. Phil's two-part interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the Manti Te'o hoax, aired Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, and will be available next week. In the 56 metered markets, however, day one of McGraw's interview with Tuiasosopo averaged a 3.3 household rating/9 share for Dr. Phil's primary runs, up 14% from Phil's prior four-week average, and up 17% to a 1.4/8 among women 25-54.

CTD's Rachael Ray cooked up a 7% increase to a 1.6, tying NBCU's Steve Wilkos, which held steady at its series high and was up 14% from last year.
