Card Sharks does seem to have a drop after Match Game, and we'll see if Press Your Luck can retain that come April 1st. Good move on doubling up Match Game at 8am, rising nearly double the audience from Classic Feud. Both classic Pyramid hours do well, while Lingo (Woolery) crashes. Afternoons do well, Catch 21 lands a slot over 400K, while John O'Hurley's hour dips at 5pm, but it could change with the "new" bullyseye episodes.

Monday Family Feud (7-11pm): 331K
Tuesday Minute to Win It (9-11pm): 206K
Wednesday Family Feud (Harvey) (7-11pm): 464K
Thursday Family Feud (Harvey): 527K
Friday Baggage (8-10pm): 295K
Saturday Family Feud (8-11pm): 314K
Sunday 5th Grader (7-10pm): 346K

Thursday was the highest rated night in primetime, averaging 569K in total viewers from 7-11pm. Monday, Wednesday and Friday do decently. The first hour of Baggage did well Friday night, and so did Minute to Win It at 7pm with 369K. Saturday did OK, while 5th Grader dips compared to usual. Also, Tuesday's Minute run bombs from the Family Trade effect.

Also to note: The two airings of Steve Harvey Family Feud after American Bible Challenge scored 447K (10pm) and 450K (10:30pm). A 42% drop from Bible to Feud.
