Syndication Ratings: ‘Judge Judy’ Rises on Repeats


Repeats marked the week ending Aug. 4, with CBS Television Distribution’s court leader Judge Judy leading all shows at a 5.8 live plus same day household national ratings average, according to Nielsen Media Research. Judy climbed 2% despite airing reruns the entire week.

Encore episodes weren’t the only factor driving ratings down — shows like Judy that air on CBS-owned stations took a hit when 28 stations were blacked out on AT&T-owned DirecTV, DirecTV Now and AT&T U-verse in 14 markets, including in the country’s three largest, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
