With the Independence Day (Monday, July 4) holiday falling on a weekday, nearly every daytime broadcast series was coded as a special with the exception of “The Price is Right,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” “TODAY 3rd Hour” and “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna” which had the date included in their weekly averages. In the case of “Deal,” ratings for each half hour were combined into a one-hour show.
