GSN Ratings November 4-10, 2013: 'The Chase' in ninth; Harvey Feud 1st-8th

For the first full week of November, GSN may have had it's lowest average viewership in quite some time, especially in the primetime areas, though Steve Harvey's Family Feud really lit things up more than usual lately.

Steve Harvey's Family Feud consumed the top 8 slots, all with over 450,000 viewers. Steve Harvey's Family Feud took the top 15 of 20 slots. The Chase took ninth while Chain Reaction took 10th, 13th and 15th. Richard Karn's Family Feud took 20th.

This week, there was one show above 600,000 viewers, three shows above 500,000 viewers, a total of 15 shows above 400,000 viewers and a very low 65 shows above 300,000 viewers.

  1. For the 6th straight week, the highest rated Harvey episode was not on Wednesday nights, in fact, nearly every night had a higher rated episode than Wednesday. I have a survey for you, Name a show that will likely be a one season flop.

    On weekends, Whammy at 10:00am averaged 205k and Love Triangle at 10:30am averaged 151k, another reason why Woolery Lingo or Russian Roulette would do better at 10:30am and be a better lead-in to Sherriwed/The Pyramid in the 11am hour. Heck, Love Triangle's getting a late-night slot, so get rid of its morning slot.

    Ohno has been flat on Sunday nights, we'll see if Sherriwed can improve Sunday night's ratings, though I'm still hoping 5th Grader, Millionaire, or Wheel of Fortune can be acquired and take 7:00pm-11:30pm soon.

  2. It really does not matter, to me, that Harvey Feud was not #1 on Wednesday night. It still has incredible ratings and topped The Chase eight times.

    Who knows what may replace Love Triangle. It could go at anytime or not, since GSN is very slow with weekend morning schedule changes. Maybe Shop 'Til You Drop will fit in with Whammy! someday

  3. If it can top The Chase, then I guess we can officially call Harvey Feud GSN's flagship program.

    Here's what I'd like to see on weekends. All times eastern.
    9:00am Password Plus
    9:30am Shop 'til You Drop
    10:00am Whammy!
    10:30am Lingo (Woolery)
    11:00am Russian Roulette
    11:30am The Pyramid

    I think this could work, if only GSN would read this.
