Ratings: the big three syndies jump

It was a good week for the big dogs in the syndie game show world. But steerage class felt some bumps and bruises. And Alex once again hopped into second place, though Pat and Vanna didn't have too much to complain about. TV News Check has the household ratings for the July 10-16 week...

Family Feud 6.3 - up three ticks
Jeopardy 5.6 - up five ticks to take over second place again
Wheel of Fortune 5.4 - up three ticks, and it's only got the one daily run
Millionaire 1.5 - down a tick
Celebrity Name Game 1.0 - down a tick as the reruns play out the string

As a faux tweet noted, Candy Crush is getting crushed in the ratings, to use the obvious pun. 2.28M viewers and a 0.5 18-49 rating. The show won't get a renewal at these levels.

GSN racked up pretty normal numbers for the July 17-23 week. 385K/269K viewers prime time/total day. The network ranked 41st and 36th in the windows.

  1. I legitimately wonder how Candy Crush would do on a cable channel, like Nickelodeon for example, rather than CBS.

    Then again, being on Sunday night with all the Fun & Games stuff on ABC isn't helping matters.
