Meanwhile, The Jennifer Hudson Show slipped from 0.7 to 0.6 for the week ending September 25, a 14% (or one-tenths of a ratings point) drop. Jennifer Hudson took over many timeslots previously occupied by the now-canceled Nick Cannon on many Fox-owned stations. It beat Cannon's second week in the ratings, though, by 50%; during that period last year, the Nick Cannon-hosted chatfest averaged a 0.4 in the ratings. The third new talk show of the season, Karamo, premiered with a 0.3. 

Some syndicated shows faced the challenge of having to compete with coverage of Queen Elizabeth II's official state funeral September 19. Among the veteran talk shows, Live with Kelly and Ryan led the category for the 18th consecutive week (eight tied with Dr. Phil), up 7% to a 1.5. Dr. Phil rose 8%, achieving a 1.4 and ranking second in households.
