Ratings: Wheel and Jeopardy rebound

The Sony soulmates had a little to smile about for the week of April 17-23. Otherwise there wasn't much going on with syndie game shows. TV News Check posts the household ratings...

Family Feud 6.3 - down a tick
Wheel of Fortune 6.0 - up three ticks for its sole daily run
Jeopardy 5.8 - up three ticks as it again moves in tandem with Wheel
Millionaire 1.6 - flat
Celebrity Name Game 1.3 - flat

The latest ep of ABC's Match Game got 3.4M viewers and a 0.8 18-49 rating. Not terrible but hardly great. Maybe the show can hang on with these numbers, though Alec Baldwin's reportedly large salary is a drawback.

GSN had kind of a blah month of April. 365K/260K viewers prime time/total day. The network ranked 39th and 36th in the windows.
