Ratings: syndies roll over

February 13-19 was a week when syndie game shows should have just stayed in bed. Things were dismal for everybody. If it's any consolation, the rest of the syndie world didn't fare too well, either. TV News Check has the depressing household ratings...

Family Feud 7.5 - down a couple ticks
Wheel of Fortune 6.7 - down three ticks
Jeopardy 6.4 - down four ticks, it's getting worse as we go along
Millionaire 1.6 - down a tick
Celebrity Name Game 1.4 - down a tick, at least they don't have to worry about it any more

GSN enjoyed a pretty good month of February. 448K/311K viewers prime time/total day. The network ranked 34th and 31st in the windows.

  1. Game Show Forum reported GSN is picking up Cash Cab and it will bow weeknights at 6PM EST starting on March 13th. Also, 1960s-80s game show announcer John Harlan was a contestant on the February 27, 2017 episode of Celebrity Bucket Kickers.

    1. Shut up with these tasteless comments, Zach.

    2. You had a beneficial piece of information but you ruined it with acting like that. No wonder no one likes you. I'm sure there are people who can't wait until YOU are on Bucket Kickers.

  2. I've seen the promos on GSN for Cash Cab, and it's now on the ScreenerTV schedule. The blog entry tomorrow will discuss the acquisition. Also, I'll remember John Harlan in a faux tweet tomorrow.

    1. Actually I just thought of something. I wonder if GSN will eventually pick up Still Standing, to complement Ben's appearance on Cash Cab...

    2. Cash Cab is on GSN now? Hey, that's a good acquisition at least. I have wondered if it would ever show up on GSN at some point.

  3. Not really that interested in Cash Cab. Disappointing acquisition by GSN, if you ask me.

  4. Still Standing only had a few episodes, no?
