Ratings: syndies go blah

The week of October 3-9 was a forgettable one for syndie game shows. None of the shows gained and the big three lost a little. Still, the damage was hardly severe. TV News Check has the household ratings...

Family Feud 6.3 - down a couple ticks, maybe they should add still more daily runs
Wheel of Fortune 6.0 - down three ticks, and welcome to GSN on October 24
Jeopardy 5.7 - down a couple ticks
Millionaire 1.6 - flat
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - flat, why do they even bother publishing the same number every week?

I've ranted about GSN's weird ratings decisions for a while now. But does anybody think Window Whatever - not even a game show, by the way - will perform well for the network? Even the promos look dorky.

Meanwhile, GSN rose a little from last week's really bad numbers. But the ratings and rankings still look pale compared to earlier this year. 356K/256K/359K viewers prime time/total day/extended prime time for October 10-16. GSN ranked 43rd, 37th and 44th in the windows. Pat and Vanna, you can't get here too soon.

  2. Can you report this Michael Taylor I'm sick of seeing his bizarre posts

    1. I did remove three spam comments from the idiotic Taylor about TPiR. I will allow him his one asinine demand for the next week's GSN schedule. If he spams that demand to other posts, I'll remove all of the brainless comments.

      The prohibition of spam has been in "Legalities and Technicalities" forever.
