Mar 16, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Here are more syndication ratings from the February sweeps, courtesy our friend Paige Albiniak at B&C. Because last year in February the Olympics were going on, B&C made comparisons to November instead.

According to the article, "Court was mostly steady compared to November. CTD’s court leader, ‘Judge Judy,’ advanced 5% from last November to a 4.6 sweep average. CTD’s ‘Judge Joe Brown’ held steady at a 2.0. Warner Bros.’ ‘People’s Court’ was unchanged at a 1.9, while ‘Judge Mathis’ improved 6% to a 1.7. Twentieth’s ‘Judge Alex’ and ‘Divorce Court’ each were flat at a 1.3, while Warner Bros.’ ‘Judge Jeanine Pirro’ trailed at a 1.0, which was still up 11%.

CTD’s ‘Swift Justice with Nancy Grace’ was the top newcomer in the February sweep and the only freshman to gain compared to November. The rookie champ improved 8% to a 1.4. Sony’s ‘Nate Berkus’ was flat at a 1.0.  Litton’s ‘Judge Karen’s Court’ was unchanged at a 0.6. Entertainment Studios’ ‘America’s Court with Judge Ross’ sank 25% to a 0.3."

On the off-network sitcom front, gainers included "Family Guy," "Two and a Half Men," "Seinfeld," "The Office," and "Friends." Sitcoms that lost ground included "Everybody Loves Raymond," "My Wife and Kids," "King of the Hill," and "George Lopez."

The one off-net sitcom that was flat was "Everybody Hates Chris."
