WEEKLY SYNDICATION RATINGS ROUNDUP

‘Golden Globes’ Coverage Powers Magazines

But other genres didn't fare as well in the week ending Jan. 19. Some first-run exceptions were Dish Nation, Wendy Williams, Steve Wilkos, Queen Latifah, Paternity Court, The Insider and TMZ..

Syndicated shows were buffeted by plunging PUT levels and preemptions in Los Angeles and New York for news coverage in the week ending Jan. 19. Nevertheless, the top-tier entertainment magazines got a boost from their reports on the Golden Globe Awards and were strong performers, with every show at its best ratings level of the season.

Magazine leader Entertainment Tonight, TMZ, Access Hollywood, Extra (which grew 6% from last year) and The Insider (up 14% from last year) all maintained or exceeded their previous season high marks. Another mag, Dish Nation, posted an 11% weekly gain from the previous frame.

Magazines scoring double-digit ratings increases on the Monday following the Golden Globes included Access Hollywood, which gained 11% to a 2.1 on Jan. 13, and The Insider, which rose 13% to a 1.7 the day after the telecast.

In daytime, the only three talk shows to improve from the week before were Steve Wilkos, which surged 14% to a new season high; Wendy Williams, which picked up 7%; and rookie leader Queen Latifah, which scored its biggest household rating in 15 weeks and climbed 33% among women 25-54 to a 0.8.

Dr. Phil was the top talker for the 21st time out of the past 24 weeks, followed closely by Live with Kelly and Michael, which increased 11% from last year.

The week’s top nationally rated daytime talk shows in the women 25-54 demo were:
