Ratings: Steve and Craig smile

The week of December 7-13 saw a couple shuffles at both ends of the syndie game show pecking order. Family Feud enjoyed a nice week to jump into second, and Celebrity Name Game crept out of the basement for the first time ever. TV News Check has all the household ratings...

Wheel of Fortune 7.0 - flat
Family Feud 6.4 - up five ticks as Steve gets some good news after the Miss Universe fiasco
Jeopardy 6.3 - down a tick to slip into third but the show's in no trouble, of course
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - up a tick to lead Millionaire for the first time ever
Millionaire 1.2 - flat and not looking happy

I'm worried about both the bottom dwellers, but Millionaire really looks critical. Celebrity Name Game has managed to stay even with last year's numbers despite reruns all month, and the show may be on track for a third season.

TV Newser hasn't posted their weekly cable ratings yet. But based on this partial link from Ratings Intelligence, I'm pretty sure GSN averaged 349K viewers in prime time for the week of December 14-20. It also looks like the network averaged 89K 18-49 viewers and 110K 25-54 viewers.

  1. At least Craig finally is out of the basement. I think CNG might be safe for a third season, but then again, Nielsen can be a grump.
