Pretty bad numbers for Karn at noon, considering the hour was hotter during the Summer. The noon slot averaged 134K and 197K at 12:30pm. For the hour all week, only two of ten slots above 200,000 viewers. Most pre-12pm shows did better. Match Game was equal, 100K Pyramid lower.

Nothing else that hurt too badly this week, but here are some slots that have already been taken out (Minute to Win It, Tuesdays) and then there's The Pyramid Sunday early afternoon, which still remains.

Comments? Suggestions for some needed changes?


  1. Karn is not doing well in the noon hour, I think they should either put Lingo there or acquire a new classic. O'Hurley might need the same at 1, but we'll see when next weeks ratings come in.

    Minute is not doing well, I wouldn't be surprised if it's gone by the end of the year.

    The Pyramid does decent in the Sunday noon hour, so I say keep that for now, maybe even give it the Saturday noon hour.

  2. Karn started off well during July/August, topping what classic Pyramid ever did. Possibly both the 12pm and 4pm hours were overkill, which is why GSN cut the 4pm hour which was starting to get poor numbers too with the addition of the noon hour.

    MTWI (Ohno) will be gone much sooner than that looking at those numbers. A lot of Tuesday airings have been cut except 8&11pm. Changes coming week of Nov. 4 with The Chase season 2.

    The Pyramid has been performing poor for a while now at noon, almost always around 150K. NG does well Saturday 11am-1pm, sometime near/above 300,000 viewers.
