The syndicated television juggernaut that is Live With Kelly and Michael shows no signs of slowing down as we gear up for the Fall 2015 TV season.

The Disney chatfest, hosted by former All My Children star Kelly Ripa and retired NFL great Michael Strahan, was the No. 1 syndicated talk show in the country in households and among women 25-54 the week of Aug. 10. Live has held that distinction for four weeks in a row. 

With an average 3.479 million total viewers for the week in question, Live was also the top syndicated talk show overall for the third week straight. Live was up over the same week last year in households (+4% ) and among total viewers (+4%). The talk show held even week to week across all three key Nielsen measures. 

For the 2014-15 season to date, Live is tied with Dr. Phil as the No. 1 syndicated talker among W25-54, while ranking No. 2 in households and total viewers season to date. For the second year in a row, Live has delivered its strongest season average in eight years in households (+4%) and among total viewers.
