Ratings: syndies muddle along

Steve and Alex lost a bit of ground in the latest week. Otherwise, not much happened for syndie game shows. TV News Check has the household ratings for the May 1-7 week...

Family Feud 6.3 - down a couple ticks, maybe they should add some more daily runs
Wheel of Fortune 5.9 - flat
Jeopardy 5.8 - down a tick to slip out of the tie with the soulmate
Millionaire 1.6 - flat
Celebrity Name Game 1.2 - flat as the shadows gather

Match Game got the worst numbers I can recall for its latest run on Sunday May 14. 2.6M viewers and a 0.6 18-49 rating. I don't know about a third season. Meanwhile, the third go-round for To Tell the Truth lands on Sunday nights this fall.

More of the same so-so numbers for GSN. 367K/254K viewers prime time/total day for the week of May 8-14. The network ranked 41st and 35th in the windows.


  1. Once Upon a Time's season finale that took a hit ratings wise is the reason why Match Game took a hit aa well hopefully it'll come back in the near future

  2. Match Game has been renewed. How well it does depends on where ABC PUTS it.
