Not so great news for hard-core Sale of the Century lovers this week. In the ratings-post below I noted the weekly averages of Press Your Luck and Sale of the Century are lower than usual, which are weekdays at 9am and 9:30am ET. Here are the numbers, provided by SonoftheBronx...
Press Your Luck averages 9:00am:
Sale of the Centuryaverages 9:30am:
For the past week, Press Your Luck had 153K; 119K; 108K; 97K; 93K. Those are some rough numbers, even after great performances from Match Game a half-hour earlier. Sale of the Century had 191K; 150K; 126K; 103K; 74K. 191,000 on Friday was great, and one of the best performances yet. The lower three were just awful though. These two shows, even though they are on early, do need help. Please watch.
Match Game in the 8am hour has remained stable, and has risen very slightly since April 1st. Match Game at 8:30am has fallen slightly since Richard Dawson Family Feud left.

I do want classics to stay on the schedule as long as possible. Excluding Sale (I'm not a fan), most other shows pre-1pm I would rather see remain on the schedule definitely moreso than Dog Eat Dog and some others. They're historic. It's just that the 9am hour stinks up mornings now. I'd give it until around Memorial Day. If there's no rise, then send $ale to weekends. Maybe Password Plus needs a return.
