Ratings: Alex smiles

Syndie game shows saw mixed results for the week of January 9-15. Alex was happy, Steve and Craig not so much. But Craig won't have to worry about the numbers for much longer, sadly. TV News Check has all the household ratings...

Family Feud 7.3 - down three ticks from the previous season high
Wheel of Fortune 7.1 - flat
Jeopardy 6.8 - up a tick to a new season high
Millionaire 1.8 - flat
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - down a tick to its usual number

GSN racked up pretty normal ratings for the week of January 16-22. 423K/302K viewers prime time/total day. The network ranked 39th and 32nd in the windows. TV Newser also posted the 25-54 demo numbers for the week. GSN got 124K/76K of those folks. Reflecting the network's constant old skew, GSN ranked a worse 45th and 49th in the windows for 25-54.

I'll have a Game Show Newsnet moment and post a comment that has nothing to do with game shows. One of my guilty pleasures, Investigation Discovery, had a blowout week for January 16-22. The true crime net posted top ten numbers in every category that TV Newser listed. ID got all the way up to number three in total day for 25-54. Crime pays.

  3. Those Nazis at Sony think it's called The Pat Sajak Show, hosted first in 1983 by the man named Puzzlers. When we all know the real name is The Chuck Woolery Show, hosted by the man called Wheel of Fortune from 1975-1981!!!!!
