Ratings Report: The Usual Suspects “Wheel” and “Jeopardy!” Stay High, “Millionaire” Stays Steady
Here comes this week’s report of game show ratings in syndication and cable. This is for the week of February 4th, 2013. Wheel of Fortune remains the unsurprising king of the syndicated ratings, scoring a 7.7 household rating and averaging 12.1 million viewers, losing a tenth of a ratings point and 200,000 viewers over last week. Jeopardy! naturally trails ever so slightly behind with a 6.9 rating, the same rating as last week, and stays in a virtual tie with last week’s ratings, just fewer than 10.7 million viewers.
Family Feud is also taking a slight dip in its household rating this week, going down a tenth to a 5.2 household rating and losing about 100,000 viewers to go just under 7.8 million viewers. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is staying steady with its 2.6 household rating, the same figure it has carried for a couple of weeks now. Let’s Ask America, in its metered markets, performed a 1.8 household rating this week. That’s down from recent numbers, but it’s still nothing to scoff at. GSN’s syndicated Baggage rests at a solid 1.1.
GSN’s Thursday night Newlywed Game block was very mixed, with a range of 150,000 viewers between the high and low score, ending up averaging just over 290,000 viewers for the block. As we talked about last week, Chain Reaction performs another week of interesting numbers, with two afternoon repeats earning over 400,000 viewers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the weekly coverage of the ratings in this favorite genre of ours. Thanks for reading.
