Ratings: happy post-holidays for syndies

The holidays passed and syndie game shows rejoiced. There were no less than four new season highs in the week of January 2-8. TV News Check spreads the good tidings about the household ratings...

Family Feud 7.6 - up a couple ticks to a new high
Wheel of Fortune 7.1 - up a whopping nine ticks to its own new high
Jeopardy 6.7 - up seven ticks to, you guessed it, a new high
Millionaire 1.8 - up a tick to celebrate its renewal with another new high
Celebrity Name Game 1.4 - up a tick to celebrate its cancellation?

Chilly January is a peak month for TV watching, so we'll probably see some more nice ratings over the next several weeks. Meanwhile, GSN more or less maintained their numbers in the week of January 9-15. 421K/302K viewers prime time/total day. The network ranked 35th and 31st in the windows.

Good news for another game show: The Wall gets 20 more eps, thanks to its steady Nielsen performance. It's averaged 6.9M viewers and a 1.7 18-49 rating. Plinko scores.
