GSN Ratings June 17-23, 2013: 'Baggage', 'Match Game' bottom out

For the week of June 17-23, Steve Harvey's Family Feud takes the top 24 out of 31 slots. Family Feud in total takes the top 40 of 53 slots. Chain Reaction, 5th Grader and Newlywed Game show off show good numbers.

There were ten slots below 100,000 viewers this week, a first in quite some time. Baggage had the bottom six slots. Match Game had the eighth, ninth and tenth worst of the week. Steve Harvey's Family Feud was the seventh worst. Nothing to complain about, since there were 8am and post-2:30am airings, except for two Baggage airings at the bottom, which were in primetime.

The morning did really well. An episode of Press Your Luck and Sale of the Century saw an over-200K rating. Midday improved as the rest of the afternoon post-2pm and Feud did fantastic.

The highest rated classic this week was The $25,000 Pyramid, Monday at 10:30am with 260,000 viewers.

Sunday 5th Grader (6-10PM): 404K

Monday Feud and Tuesday Minute went up against The Voice finale, and it showed in the GSN ratings. Game Show Moments Gone Bananas had 308,000 viewers Tuesday at 7pm. Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights did very well. Friday, though, saw Baggage at 8pm with 83K viewers and at 8:30pm with 78K viewers. Something must change.
