Post-“Oprah,” “Dr. Phil” leads the syndie yak pack

Players are emerging from the post-Oprah syndie landscape with “Dr. Phil” in the lead – ratings for the first week after Oprah Winfrey’s syndicated show ended production show are in, and Phil McGraw’s yakker is at the top of the chart with a 2.6. “Live with Regis & Kelly” trails with a 2.4 share, although the jury is out on this one with Regis leaving at the end of the year. Interestingly, though, while “The Oprah Winfrey Show” aired reruns and dropped, as expected, to 3.04 million total viewers and wasn’t even carried in some markets, it still topped “Maury,” “Dr. Oz” (which hit a season low), and “Ellen.” Behold:

#1 – “Dr. Phil” – 2.6 share, 3.439 million total viewers, up 8%

#2 – “Live with Regis & Kelly” – 2.4 share, 3.185 million total viewers, up 4%

#3 – “Oprah Winfrey” – 2.3 share, 3.038 million total viewers, off 36%

#4 – “Maury” – 2.0 share, 3.081 million total viewers, even

#5 – “Dr Oz” – 2.0 share, 2.670 million total viewers, off 5%

#6 – “Ellen” – 1.8 share, 2.530 million total viewers, off 10%
