Great week for morning classics. Everything from 8am-1pm rose from the three prior weeks (April 1-19). Lingo and 100K Pyramid still had an audience drop after Super Password, but nothing else bad at all. The O'Hurley Feud hour came weak again. Have a feeling it won't last through the Summer. Also noticing that Catch 21 and Lingo are thinning a bit, but nothing to worry about. Chain Reaction does great as well.

Monday Family Feud (7-11PM): 279K
Tuesday Minute to Win It (7-11PM): 226K
Wednesday Family Feud (Harvey) (7-11PM): 564K
Thursday Family Feud (Harvey) (7-9PM): 428K
Friday Minute to Win It/Baggage (7-11PM): 258K; Baggage only (8-10PM): 286K
Saturday Family Feud (8-11PM): 323K
Sunday Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? (7-10PM): 524K

Let's see...the primetime average this week was 388,000 viewers. Only Family Feud (Wednesday, Thursday) and 5th Grader were able to match or beat those numbers. Saturday came close, and Monday wasn't a disaster either, but Friday fell, especially the MTWI at 10pm (141K, 15th from the bottom). Tuesday's Minute to Win It reruns may still have the Family Trade effect, even though FT is gone. We'll see if ratings pick up.
