Ratings: Feud slides into third

It was mostly a bad week for syndie game shows. The ratings generally drooped for October 5-11, with a noticeable downdraft in Family Feud's numbers and ranking. Steve slipped into third place, where he hasn't been for a while. But it's still very close among the top three. TV News Check posts the household ratings...

Wheel of Fortune 6.4 - down a couple ticks
Jeopardy 6.1 - up a tick to buck the trend as Matt Jackson's run proceeded
Family Feud 6.0 - down four ticks as Steve has seen better weeks
Millionaire 1.2 - flat at a bad number
Celebrity Name Game 1.1 - down a tick into the basement all by itself

Sigh, not a good week for the genre. At least Matt Jackson helped out with a bit of good news. Meanwhile, Billy on the Street and Broke A$$ Game Show are getting 350-450K viewers, pretty much in line with their networks' prime time averages. They're also getting about 0.2 in the 18-49 demo, which ain't great but ain't a disaster, either.

By recent standards GSN had a so-so week for October 12-18. 365K/290K/393K viewers prime time/total day/extended prime time. The network ranked 42nd, 30th and 37th in the windows. Hardly terrible but not great compared to most weeks lately.

UPDATE: Well, what do you know? TV by the Numbers has started posting their syndie viewer totals again. Pat and Vanna led all syndies. Wheel of Fortune 10.1M, Jeopardy 9.4M, Family Feud 9.0M (weekend repeat 3.2M). TVBTN even has the 18-49 ratings. The site is obsessed with the Sacred Demo. 1.2, 1.1 and 1.9 for the three shows, respectively.
