Ratings: Jeopardy hits season low

Maybe it was the reruns or summer or the CBS spat with that cable company. But for whatever reason Jeopardy hit a season low in the week of August 5-11. Otherwise movement among syndicated game shows was limited. But woeful Jerry got a little dose of good news. TVNewsCheck has all the household ratings...

Wheel of Fortune 6.0 - up a tick
Jeopardy 5.1 - down four ticks to that season low
Family Feud 4.5 - down a tick
Millionaire 2.3 - flat as we get ready for a new host
Baggage 1.2 - up a couple ticks to a pretty good number for Jerry

Everybody except you know who made the top 25 list at TV by the Numbers. The viewer averages: Wheel of Fortune 9.1 million (weekend repeat 4.3 million), Jeopardy 7.7 million, Family Feud 6.7 million, Millionaire 3.1 million. We're just waiting for the new seasons next month.

GSN's The Chase continues its okay but not overwhelming numbers. The latest ep on August 20 pulls 401K total viewers and 88K people in the famous 18-49 demo. Douglas Pucci reports that GSN enjoyed another good week for August 12-18: 380K/296K viewer averages prime time/total day.
