GSN ratings April 8-14, 2013: Harvey flies higher than 'Bible'

In the latest week of ratings, Steve Harvey's Family Feud dominates the top 24 out of 27 slots, with all those airings around or above 450K. Post-2002 Family Feud slots a week take the top 67 of 100 slots. [Harvey: 49; Karn: 9; O'Hurley: 8] I guess you can't have enough of a good thing. Other constant rating-winners are 5th Grader, Newlywed Game and Baggage.

Not bad numbers but there are still some down-spots. Match Game is improving, while PYL and $ale fall. Both classic Pyramid hours are weaker than usual, while Super Password was the highest classic of the week (324K on Fri) and 25K Pyramid (289K on Fri). The rest of the afternoon was down more than usual, especially Chain Reaction and on until around 6pm.

Monday Family Feud (7-11PM): 289K
Tuesday Minute to Win It (9-11PM): 221K
Wednesday Family Feud (Harvey) (7-11PM): 604K
Thursday Family Feud (Harvey) (7-9PM): 459K [Whole night: 551K]
Friday Baggage (8-10PM): 242K
Saturday Family Feud (8-11PM): 363K
Sunday 5th Grader (7-10PM): 383K

Fantastic performance on Wednesday. One of the highest ever. 8-10pm on Wednesday averaged 657K alone. Thursday, Saturday and Sunday did very well. Monday was weaker than usual, but still alright. Baggage needs to go, at least on Friday nights. It's simply not working. Time for one solid show from 7-11pm. Minute to Win It, Deal or No Deal, Match Game. They should try anything now.
