Ratings: close at the top for syndies

TV News Check went back to their usual format for syndie ratings. They gave the changes from the previous week instead of the previous year's sweeps period. The top three syndie game shows were within three tenths of a point of each other. The tight race in household ratings...

Family Feud 6.7 - down three ticks from the previous week
Wheel of Fortune 6.5 - up three ticks
Jeopardy 6.4 - up a couple ticks to help create the close race
Millionaire 1.7 - flat
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - flat, as it heads for Nielsen Boot Hill

Of course, the race is unfair because Wheel of Fortune only gets one run per day to generate all its ratings. But you knew that already, I hope.

GSN turned in its usual numbers for the week of March 13-19. 417K/291K viewers prime time/total day. The network ranked 38th and 35th in the windows.


  1. I wonder if Wheel and Jeopardy and even Feud will be hit by NCAA preemptions.

  2. Hiw did Cash Cab do on GSN?

  3. What was on the $25,000 Pyramid yesterday?

    1. This makes no sense lol

    2. Michael Taylor's comments never make sense. They're good for some unintentional humor, though.
