In what may be encouraging signs for Warner Bros. Two and a Half Men and Twentieth Television’s Family Guy, ratings for both off-network programs in syndication are up from the previous week in metered markets, ever so slightly. Both look like they’re keepers.
Law & Order: Criminal Intent scored a 1.0/3 as a strip in off-network syndication in its first week, down 9 percent from its lead-in, but flat from year-ago time periods.
As for new first-run shows, TMZ and Steve Wilkos slipped in the ratings a bit, while Merv Griffin’s Crosswords, Temptation, and Judge David Young are stagnant.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit led new weekly shows in syndication with a 1.4/3. However, the others – The Dead Zone, Cold Case, and ReGenesis – turned in less than impressive results.
