Ratings Report: Big Money Shatters Another “Family Feud” Record, How Much Further Can They Go?

Syndicated ratings are in for the first week of 2013! These are ratings from the week of December 31, 2012 and one show in particular has really good news. But we will start first with our two traditional toppers. Wheel of Fortune begins to recover from the holiday season breaks, gaining back 150,000 viewers and inching up two-tenths of a ratings point, finishing with just fewer than 11 million viewers and a 6.9 household rating. Jeopardy! shows the wackiness of the correlation between overall viewers and the household rating, as it loses 40,000 or so viewers but gains a tenth of a point to go to a 6.0 rating.

Ratings Report: “Millionaire” Hits Top, Most Others Seasonally Drop, Some GSN Ratings Flop

It's time for another holiday week of syndicated ratings! That means some lower-than-usual numbers in a few cases and a surprisingly large bump in another. These ratings are for the week beginning December 24th, 2012, making it the last set of ratings entirely resting in 2012. Wheel of Fortune kicks the report off as usual, checks in with another tumble. The spinner lost 600,000 viewers and six-tenths of a point, going to a 6.7 household rating. Jeopardy! falls similarly, losing 500,000 viewers with 9.3 million viewers checking in and losing half of a ratings point, sliding down to a 5.9 rating.

“Family Feud” Kicks Off 2013 With Steve Harvey’s First Big Money Tournament Today Thumbnail

“Family Feud” Kicks Off 2013 With Steve Harvey’s First Big Money Tournament Today

2012 has been an extremely good year for Family Feud. They have seen visibility of the show increase, the viewership go up by millions and fan loyalty continue to stay strong. Clearly, they anticipate 2013 going even better and they plan to make sure that happens by starting the year off, beginning today, with something that has not been seen for a few years: The Family Feud Big Money Tournament. The show has not presented a Big Money Tournament since 2009 when John O'Hurley was the host of the program, so this will be Steve Harvey's first opportunity to give away $160,000 to one of eight lucky families. Each family selected to play in the single-elimination tournament is a notable family from the first two seasons of Harvey's Feud tenure that did not manage to capture a big prize during their stay. If they can make it all the way to the end, the winning family will certainly not have to worry about that anymore. Click here to see the tournament schedule, to see a photo of each participating family and to learn about the tournament's game format.
