Ratings: syndies barely budge

There was no movement in syndie game shows for the week of August 21-27, except for one sad tenth of a point. TV News Check has the mostly boring household ratings...

Family Feud 6.2 - flat, this is a theme
Wheel of Fortune 5.3 - flat
Jeopardy 5.1 - flat
Millionaire 1.5 - flat, get the idea?
Celebrity Name Game 0.9 - down a tick to a season low, in one last slight

Speaking of last slights, the burnoff of Candy Crush's final two eps drew almost no notice. The two hours averaged 1.2M viewers and a 0.2 18-49 rating. Not a great way to go out.

GSN tumbled to its worst week in a while. 325K/251K viewers prime time/total day for August 28-September 3. The network ranked 46th and 43rd in the windows. Ouch.

  1. Noticed that WPCW now airs 2 hours of Harvey Feud every weekday from 6-8 pm in my local PA area. Although I'm surprised Feud's new runs from 7-8 pm have managed to stay in those timeslots for so long. Steve's up against Alex and Pat and Vanna and I thought he would get crushed. But he must be holding in well. Though looking back at local ratings recently, Jep! and Wheel KO Feud from 7-8. Then again, The CW isn't the highest rated station to begin with.

    2. In Boston they air Family Feud at 8-9pm on WHDH 7 it used to be an NBC station but now it's independent and they run a promo with Steve saying "the only station that shows it in primetime" i'm wondering if that's true. It also used to run at 7-8pm on WBIN but now it's gone and WHDH also runs reruns at 3-4pm and of course I get it on GSN as well. I like the show i'm not complaining but I agree it is on a lot.

  2. A teaser for J!'s new season has Alex saying something like "Is it too late to compare the current champion to Ken Jennings", which implies a champ winning more than a couple games in a row might be coming early this season.

    1. Yeah, I've seen a few comments around the game show Interwebs about Alex's little tease. We'll see if anybody runs off a long streak.
