Ratings: “Jeopardy!” Aaron Rodgers 2nd Week Falls, “Ellen DeGeneres” Stays Under a Million, Tamron Up, Top Shows Down


Syndication ratings are in for two weeks ago, and they weren’t good for Aaron Rodgers.

The Green Bay quarterback didn’t complete his passes as “Jeopardy!” fell in his second week to 5.5 million, down from 5.6 in his first week.

“Jeopardy!” has lost 500,000 viewers since Ken Jennings exited many weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres stayed below 1 million viewers, at 900,000. Ellen’s show is stuck in a downward spiral as she heads inti May sweeps and the end of her season.

But the top syndicated shows are off, too. Both “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “Dr.Phil” were at 1.7 million, off by two or three hundred thousand viewers. Maybe everyone is just worn out. Only Tamron Hall was up, 14%, for her 300th episode. Congrats!
