Ratings: lazy summer for syndies

Viewers drift away in summer, and syndie game shows felt the drift in the June 27-July 3 week. None of the shows tumbled a lot, but there were small downdrafts. TV News Check has the household ratings...

Family Feud 7.0 - down a tick for its umpteen daily runs
Wheel of Fortune 5.8 - down a tick for its single daily run
Jeopardy 5.6 - down a tick, see the pattern?
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - flat, it never changes
Millionaire 1.3 - flat

GSN posted typical numbers for the July 4-10 week. 457K/306K/449K viewers prime time/total day/extended prime time. I'll remind readers again that GSN prime time is three-fourths Harvey Feud. The network ranked 35th, 32nd and 35th in the windows.

ABC's trio of Sunday night game shows all landed in the top fifteen for the July 4-10 week. But Match Game is clearly lagging the other two. To Tell the Truth is performing respectably on Tuesday.
