some interesting ratings news for the week of June 2-8. Alex fell back into a tie with Pat and Vanna for the top spot in syndie game show household ratings. And Cedric hit a season low as he makes his way to the exit. It was generally a blah week at best as the weather got warmer...
Wheel of Fortune 6.1 - flat
Jeopardy 6.1 - down three ticks as Julia departs
Family Feud 4.7 - flat
Millionaire 1.8 - down a tick to the season low
TV by the Numbers has the viewer averages for the top three shows. Wheel of Fortune 9.7 million (weekend repeat 3.3 million), Jeopardy 9.4 million, Family Feud 6.9 million. Judge Judy beat 'em all in total viewers. Did I ever mention that the judge gets on my nerves?
GSN enjoyed its best week in a while, most notably in prime time. 373K/252K viewer averages prime time/total day for the week of June 9-15. Although It Takes a Church hasn't been a huge success, it hasn't bombed, either. Same for the third season of American Bible Challenge.
