Ratings: little change for syndies

Not much happened with syndie game shows in the week of February 5-11. It was the first week of sweeps but the numbers didn't move a lot. TV News Check has the boring household ratings...

Family Feud 7.2 - up a tick, which is big this week
Jeopardy 6.8 - flat
Wheel of Fortune 6.7 - down a tick to fall just behind the soulmate
Millionaire 1.8 - flat
Funny You Should Ask 0.5 - flat, ho-hum

ABC has been running Celebrity Family Feud repeats against the Olympics and getting dull ratings. About 3.7 million viewers for the latest runs. Could be worse, I guess.

Pretty much the usual story for GSN. 398K/260K viewers prime time/total day for the week of February 12-18. The network ranked 38th and 32nd in the windows. The prime time (all Harvey Feud) numbers inched up a little, the total day numbers slipped a bit. By the way, GSN is planning no changes to the schedule for the next few weeks, according to the pdfs.

While we're on GSN, they've changed the logo on their channel listings. See the screenshot from Screener TV. Don't know if this new logo will appear everywhere or just on the listings.

    1. GSN's been talking about the new logo in the cover e-mails for the pdf schedules. I dunno, it looks pretty bland to me.

    2. It's hideous, IMO. It could be a placeholder logo until a rebrand comes on.

  3. More Harvey Feud = More Ratings? Wow...who would've guessed.

    1. Prime time was almost all Harvey Feud before, so the extra couple hours didn't make that much difference. But yeah, eliminating the oldies on Saturday night probably did nudge the prime time average up a little.

    2. The numbers improved. That's all that matters.
