household ratings for the week of September 14-20...
Wheel of Fortune 5.8 - up a tick
Family Feud 5.6 - down a couple ticks
Jeopardy 5.5 - flat, it's like the new season never happened
Millionaire 1.2 - down four ticks to a new all-time low, yeeeeouch
Celebrity Name Game 1.0 - down two ticks in the last week of reruns, don't know if this is an all-time low but it's close
TV by the Numbers says Wheel took second place in viewer average among all syndies, behind only the snarky judge. Wheel of Fortune 9.1M (weekend repeat 3.1M), Jeopardy 8.4M, Family Feud 8.2M. As always, Pat and Vanna got their numbers on a single run, which is impressive. As for the bottom two, it's getting dark down there. Maybe the doomsayers for Millionaire, who have been chirping for years, will finally be right.
GSN inevitably cooled off a little in September against tougher competition from the broadcasters. But the network still enjoyed a terrific third quarter. 434K/320K/455K viewers prime time/total day/extended prime time. GSN ranked 36th, 28th and 32nd in the windows. The network put out a press release that burbled with joy over the numbers. GSN had its best September ever, which makes it eight out of nine months in 2015 for best ever.
