While continuing to dominate among women 18-34 with a 2.9 rating (63,700 viewers) and a 21 share of the audience — making it the No. 1 program in New York from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in that demo — the talk show achieved new rating and share highs in households (a top-rated 2.3/9, or 169,000 viewers) and garnered its highest share yet among women 25-54 (a top-rated 1.8/15, or 81,600 viewers).
