*: May improve to better time slot, more slots or double-run

Green percents show an improvement in percent, red percents show a decline from the previous week. In bold shows a rise/fall of greater than ten percent.

Calculated by ratings over past five weeks (September 23-October 27) versus daytime average and lead-ins/lead-outs, rise/fall over extended time and previous shows in that time slot. All Times Eastern.


  1. Based upon this, here's what I think the schedule could look like in December(if nothing gets acquired)
    All times eastern
    8:00am Match Game
    8:30am Match Game
    9:00am Super Password
    9:30am Press Your Luck
    10:00am Sale of the Century
    10:30am $25k Pyramid
    11:00am Super Password
    11:30am $100k Pyramid
    12:00pm Password Plus
    12:30pm Lingo (Woolery)
    1:00pm Family Feud (Karn)
    1:30pm Family Feud (O'Hurley)
    2:00pm Russian Roulette
    2:30pm Lingo (Engvall)
    3:00pm 1 vs. 100 (Inaba)
    3:30pm The Pyramid
    4:00pm Chain Reaction
    4:30pm Chain Reaction
    5:00pm Catch 21
    5:30pm Catch 21
    6:00pm Family Feud (Harvey)
    6:30pm Family Feud (Harvey)

    Friday nights will be 1 vs. 100 (Saget) and Minute to Win It (Fieri) starting this week. Saturday nights and Sunday nights are getting slight changes this week, but I think improvement still needs to be made.

  2. I really do not see Woolery Lingo coming back to the schedule, especially weekdays. Just maybe weekday mornings at 9am or 10:30am

  3. Woolery Lingo might do well weekends at 9am starting in April if the Password Plus lease is not renewed. It might do even better at 10:30am after Whammy! since both shows premiered in the same year.

  4. I'd prefer this Saturdays & Sundays:

    9:00am: Password Plus
    9:30am: Lingo (Woolery)
    10:00am: Whammy!
    10:30am: Whammy!

  5. I like your weekend mornings idea. If GSN would do that, and put either The Pyramid or Russian Roulette in the 11am hour on Saturdays to replace sherriwed, then my viewership would be secured for weekend mornings.
