Ratings: Feud leads all syndies

We're entering the summer lull in TV viewing, so there weren't any increases for syndie game shows. But Family Feud still landed atop all syndication. TV News Check has the household ratings for the week of June 6-12...

Family Feud 6.8 - down four ticks but still beats everybody
Wheel of Fortune 5.8 - down a tick
Jeopardy 5.5 - flat
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - flat
Millionaire 1.2 - flat, which seems pretty common this week

It looks like the only way for Wheel of Fortune to regain the top spot would be a second daily run of the show. That would pile some points onto the weekly average. Everybody else does it, after all.

GSN enjoyed another good week for June 13-19. 490K/314K/494K viewers prime time/total day/extended prime time. The network ranked 33rd, 32nd and 31st in the windows.


  1. Putting Wheel of Fortune as a 2nd daily run of the show will never happen what so ever

    1. Why not? Four runs a day in some markets doesn't seem to be hurting Family Feud. Just helps pile up more points on the weekly ratings.

    2. It's impossible cuz it will hurt Jeopardy's ratings if it was to happen which it never will so Wheel will remain 2nd or 3rd for the most part while Family Feud dominates

  2. Hurt Jeopardy's ratings? How? Sony would make sure that the shows didn't conflict in any major market.
