‘Springer’ No. 2 talker

If the October book is any indication, “Jerry Springer” is going to have a November sweep to remember.

The Universal TV talker ranked second in daytime (8 a.m. to 3 p.m.) during the October ratings period (Sept. 25-Oct. 22) to “Live With Regis & Kathie Lee,” according to Nielsen’s metered market survey. “Jerry Springer,” which has daytime clearances in 23 of Nielsen’s 38 metered markets, averaged a 3.9 household rating and 14 share, up a whopping 86% from its average lead-in (2.1/8) and 44% from its Oct. ’96 average.

“Live With Regis & Kathie Lee,” cleared exclusively in daytime, stayed on top with a 4.4/18. Another notable daytime performer in October was newcomer “Martha Stewart Living,” which ranked fifth among daytime syndie skeins with a 2.9/11.

Among the combatants in early fringe (3 p.m. to 7 p.m.), King World’s “Oprah Winfrey” led the charge with a 7.6/20, followed by Warner Bros. “Rosie O’Donnell” with a 4.5/12.
