Ratings: syndies get so happy

It was such a good week for syndie game shows that TV News Check headlined the numbers. "Solid week for syndie game shows: All five entries in the genre post week-to-week ratings gains in the final session before the February sweep." The site then listed the household ratings for the week of January 23-29...

Family Feud 7.6 - up five ticks
Wheel of Fortune 7.0 - up three ticks
Jeopardy 6.7 - up five ticks, aren't we all just doing swell?
Millionaire 1.8 - up a tick
Celebrity Name Game 1.4 - up a tick but it doesn't much matter any more

The latest viewer numbers and 18-49 ratings for GSN's originals…

9:00 PM Divided 377K 0.06
9:30 PM Divided 393K 0.07
10:00 PM Idiotest 372K 0.09
10:30 PM Idiotest 410K 0.09

Divided may be teetering right on the edge for renewal. The viewer numbers are okay but the demos are dipping. It seems silly that a show's fate could hang on hundredths of an 18-49 ratings point. But that's TV, folks.

Overall GSN did fine for the January 30-February 5 week. 426K/305K viewers prime time/total day. The network ranked 35th and 30th in the windows. That's the highest total day rank in a while.
