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.
