Ratings: syndies mostly lose a little

Syndicated game shows mostly gave a little ground in the week of July 29-August 4. There was a smidgen of good news for Mr. Harvey, though. And as always, the pecking order among the five shows remained the same. TVNewsCheck has all the household ratings...

Wheel of Fortune 5.9 - down a tick
Jeopardy 5.5 - also down a tick, to imitate the soulmate
Family Feud 4.6 - up a tick in the bit of good news
Millionaire 2.3 - down a couple ticks as Meredith's time is almost up
Baggage 1.0 - flat for poor Jerry

The top four made the syndie list at TV by the Numbers. Their viewership averages: Wheel of Fortune 9.1 million (weekend repeat 4.4 million), Jeopardy 8.2 million, Family Feud 6.8 million, Millionaire 3.2 million. The endlessly ballyhooed battle between CBS and Time Warner Cable really doesn't seem to have affected the numbers much.

In its second week GSN's The Chase pulled okay but not particularly good numbers: 397K total viewers and 141K 18-49 folks. The demo number is pretty decent for GSN. Meanwhile, the network enjoyed a nice week for August 5-11 with 397K/310K prime time/total day viewer averages.
