Syndies: everybody gets happy, especially Chris

The first week of their new seasons helped Pat and Vanna and Alex and, in a big way, Chris. TV News Check has the gladsome household ratings for the week of September 12-18...

Family Feud 6.3 - up a tick in the last week before its new season
Wheel of Fortune 5.7 - up three ticks in its new season for the solitary daily run
Jeopardy 5.4 - up four ticks for the new eps
Millionaire 1.6 - up three ticks in by far the biggest percentage move
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - flat at its very well established number in the last week before its new season

I had heard about Millionaire getting better time slots in some key markets like New York City. Looks like the ratings are feeling the benefit. If Chris Harrison can maintain or improve these numbers, he could be in for a long run on the show. The producers have already put out a happy happy joy joy press release. Millionaire averaged 1.6 million viewers for the week, if you wanted to know. The demos also improved.

In slightly related news, Celebrity Name Game released the list of October celebs.


  1. I told you ratings would improve for Millionaire I hope it gets to 2.0 at some point with better timeslots this season

  2. "Michael Taylor's" latest idiotic spam has been deleted. He gets ONE asinine demand for the GSN schedule per week, and no more.

  3. DwWashburn sucks, and doesn't matter! No really, he does! As for Millionaire, glad to see ratings uptick!
