Ratings: syndie soulmates rise a little

After bad news the last few weeks, Alex and Pat had something to cheer about as we wait for their new seasons on September 16. Both shows added a few tenths to distance themselves from the pack during the week of August 26-September 1. Meanwhile, Meredith went out with a pretty typical number for her last couple years. TVNewsCheck provides all the ratings...

Wheel of Fortune 5.9 - up a couple ticks
Jeopardy 5.1 - up a couple ticks from last week's season low
Family Feud 4.3 - down a couple ticks as the new season approaches
Millionaire 2.3 - flat as Meredith wraps up a long run
Baggage 1.1 - up a tick and Jerry will take it

At least Meredith made the top 25 syndie list at TV by the Numbers in her final week. The viewer averages: Wheel of Fortune 9.2 million (weekend repeat 3.8 million), Jeopardy 7.8 million, Family Feud 6.4 million, Millionaire 3.2 million. We'll get Cedric's first ratings next week. And all the shows can look forward to better numbers as their new seasons arrive.

TVNewser says that GSN produced pretty much its usual ratings for the week of September 2-8. 372K/268K viewer averages prime time/total day. The network ranked 39th and 38th in the windows, which again is fairly standard. Ho-hum.


  1. Off topic but apparently Steve Harvey Feud takes afternoons on GSN.

    Any advanced schedules?

  2. Nope, haven't gotten any revised schedules yet.

  3. No, O'Hurley takes over the 1pm slot. Where are you getting that info Scott?

    1. Effective now, continuing Monday, September 16th and on:

      8am-Noon ET: Pre-1990s
      12pm hour: Karn Feud
      1pm hour: O'Hurley Feud
      2-4pm: Catch 21, Chain Reaction and such
      4-7pm: Harvey Feud
      Meanwhile, nice average for the first week of September. Ohno MTWI on Monday weighed down daytime, big time.
