Ratings: syndies slip a bit

As syndie game shows ran through the final weeks of summer reruns, nothing much happened in the ratings. Oh, Steve and Pat and Vanna slipped a little. TV News Check has the household ratings for the week of August 29-September 4...

Family Feud 6.3 - down three ticks
Wheel of Fortune 5.6 - down a tick
Jeopardy 5.2 - flat
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - flat at its usual number
Millionaire 1.2 - flat, to round out a dull week

By recent standards GSN had a so-so week for September 5-11. 432K/289K/418K viewers prime time/total day/extended prime time. The network ranked 39th, 35th and 40th in the windows. GSN hasn't scored any big Nielsen winners with original shows lately.


  1. $100,000 Pyramid ended on a decent note. 5.3 million and a 1.0 in the demo. Although it dropped big from the DWTS premiere, which had over 12 million. But still good numbers and it topped its timeslot in viewership.

    Celebrity Feud ended on a positive note as well. 6.6 million and a 1.3 in the demo. Very good despite football competition. We'll see Steve and Michael again next summer.

    Match Game wraps its season this upcoming Monday night and Sarah Palin will be on the panel. I see why ABC left this episode for last. Looks like evil fun will ensue.
