Strong bow in syndies for ‘Power’

Legal eagle skein on track to match success of 'Divorce Court'

Twentieth Television’s “Power of Attorney” debuted Monday in syndication with ratings that matched last fall’s preem of the Fox syndie arm’s successful “Divorce Court.”

“Power” earned a prelim weighted metered market average 2.2 rating/7 share, according to Nielsen.

That’s the exact same perf delivered last fall by “Divorce,” which went on to become the highest-rated new firstrun strip of the season.

“Power” matched the share earned in its time period at the same time last year, dipping in rating by a 10th of a point. “Power’s” was likewise even with its lead-in’s share and down a 10th from its lead-in’s rating.

Great in Gotham

Among “Power’s” strongest individual market perfs was its debut in New York, on Fox station WNYW at 9 a.m. There, the show earned a 3.1/10, up from last year’s 1.3/5 time period average and up from its “Good Day New York” lead-in, which earned 2.6/8.

While “Power’s” perf appears promising, a show’s first-day perf rarely signals instant success or demise for a show. Most new fare for the fall has yet to air and two months remain before the important November sweeps rating period.

Elsewhere in syndication, King World latenight weekly “The Cindy Margolis Show” gained in rating and share between the week ended Aug. 27 and its preem the previous week, moving from an average 1.3/4 to 1.4/5, according to Nielsen’s weighted metered market figures.
