3 Syndicated Shows Drew Bigger Ratings Than Most In Primetime
Three daytime syndicated shows are currently averaging ratings that many primetime shows would envy. The three are grabbing audiences averaging more than 10 million viewers a day. They are reruns of The Big Bang Theory from Warner Bros. TV, with 11.9 million viewers daily, CBS Television Distribution's Wheel of Fortune with 10.8 million viewers, and CBSTVD's Judge Judy with 10.2 million viewers. It was, said Jim Carnegie, who runs the online trade publication RBR.com, a banner week for [TV] syndication. Those shows in fact drew bigger audiences than all but four of those that aired on network television during primetime in the same week.
