Ratings: Sony soulmates soar

Pat and Vanna and Alex had a lot to be happy about in the November 16-22 week. Both of the Sony shows jumped big to hit season highs and easily lead the genre. Only the loud judge outpaced them in household ratings. Otherwise, there was little movement among syndie game shows. TV News Check has all the numbers...

Wheel of Fortune 7.4 - up six ticks
Jeopardy 6.9 - up five ticks to take second place from Steve
Family Feud 6.5 - down a tick
Millionaire 1.3 - flat as usual
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - flat as usual

TV by the Numbers has stopped posting viewer numbers and instead started posting a narrow demo number, women 25-54. For what it's worth, the three top syndie game shows did fine in that demo. Wheel of Fortune 2.4, Jeopardy 2.1, Family Feud 3.5. The shows all landed in the top ten in the demo among all syndies.

TV Newser reports that GSN averaged 356K/309K/395K viewers for prime time/total day/extended prime time in November. The network ranked 46th, 31st and 40th in the windows. Hellevator isn't helping the prime time average. Its latest ep got only 207K viewers on December 2.
