‘Judge Judy’ Tops Syndies In Strong Session

Inside Edition had a 2.6 and sister show Entertainment Tonight at a 2.5 led the category with gains of 8% and 9% respectively.

Back in daytime, Dr. Phil was in reruns on all five days but held its ground at a 2.2 and finished first among talkers for the 149th week in a row. Live with Kelly and Ryan was the second highest talk show for the 20th consecutive week with a steady 1.9.

Rounding out the top five, encore episodes of Ellen DeGeneres recovered 15% to a 1.5, Maury maintained a 1.2 and Wendy Williams returned from its hiatus with four originals and one repeat spiking 33% to a 1.2 and tying the all-repeat week of Maury.

Meanwhile, week one of a scheduled six-week test that began July 15 for comedic game show Punchline was graded at as 0.4 rating 1 share, weighted metered market average, down 33% from both its lead-ins and July 2018 time periods.

Back in the national ratings, true crime leader Dateline delivered a 8% spike to a 1.3 and a 20% surge in women 25-54 to a 0.6 in the demo. Meanwhile, the scripted Chicago PD shot up 13% to a 0.9.
