Ratings: really ho-hum week for syndies

There may have been more boring weeks for syndie game show ratings, but I can't remember them. Four of the shows were unchanged for the week of May 9-15, and the other moved by an entire tenth of a point. TV News Check has all the tedious household ratings...

Family Feud 7.0 - flat
Wheel of Fortune 6.3 - flat
Jeopardy 6.0 - up a tick, the big mover!
Celebrity Name Game 1.4 - flat
Millionaire 1.3 - guess what, flat

As the weather warmed up, GSN enjoyed a hot week (sorry) for May 16-22. 518K/319K/503K viewers prime time/total day/extended prime time. The network ranked 31st, 30th and 32nd in the windows.

The prime time and extended prime time ratings are almost all Harvey Family Feud. So much for the predictions of Harvey burnout I keep seeing on the traditionalist game show Interwebs. The Internet boards love to trash Steve, and that means exactly nothing in the real world.
