TIME CHANGE CLOCKS SYNDICATED RATINGS.

HOLLYWOOD Ratings for "Seinfeld" repeats in broadcast syndication continued to weaken during the second week of daylight-saving time as the show hit a new all-time low of 4.0 for the week ended April 15, according to Nielsen.

Rating repped a 5% dip from the prior week, when the laffer hit its lowest national household rating perf since it debuted in syndication in September 1995.

While the tumble appears dramatic for such a stalwart show, skein is not alone in its difficulties among the off-net sitcom group: "Friends" was down 7% from the prior week to 5.2, down 9% year to year; "Frasier" was down 4% from the prior week and prior year to 4.9; "Drew Carey" was down 6% for the week to 3.3, which is down 15% from last year; and "3rd Rock From the Sun" dipped 3% to 2.9, a drop of 9% year to year.
