Ratings: syndies barely budge

Syndie game shows hardly moved an inch or a tick in the week of April 21-27. TV by the Numbers has all the tedious household ratings and viewer averages. But I'll warn you that the "news" is pure boredom...

Wheel of Fortune 6.6 - flat
Jeopardy 6.4 - flat
Family Feud 4.9 - down a tick, a show actually moved
Millionaire 2.1 - flat, see the pattern?

Surprise, surprise, the viewer averages also look pretty similar to last week. Wheel of Fortune 10.3 million (weekend repeat 5.0 million), Jeopardy 10.0 million, Family Feud 7.2 million, Millionaire 2.8 million. Nothing to see here, move along.

TV Newser says GSN continued its string of blah ratings in the week of April 28-May 4. 301K/245K viewer averages prime time/total day. The network ranked 45th and 42nd in the windows. The new seasons and shows can't arrive soon enough.
