KATIE Finishes No. 1 Among Freshmen Syndicated Talk Shows

Based on National ratings for the week of November 5, 2012, KATIE finished No. 1 against all freshmen syndicated talk shows for the 9th week in a row with Households (1.8 rating), Total Viewers (2.355 million) and Women 25-54 (1.0 rating). "Katie" once again led the week by double to triple-digit advantages over "StEve Harvey" (1.3 HH rating, 1.869 million viewers and 0.9 W25-54 rating), "Ricki Lake" (0.7 HH rating, 924,000 viewers and 0.5 W25-54 rating), "Jeff Probst" (0.7 HH rating, 902,000 viewers and 0.4 W25-54 rating) and "Trisha" (0.5 HH rating, 706,000 viewers and 0.4 W25-54 rating). Overall, "Katie" stands as television's strongest freshman syndicated talk show since 2009 among Households, Total Viewers and Women 25-54 - going back to the debut season of "Dr. Oz."
