Three weeks of '1 vs 100' and 'The Chase'

Both shows have been on the schedule for three weeks now, The Chase in its second season with new runs on Tuesday nights and 1 vs. 100 (Saget) back on the GSN schedule for the first time in a year and a half. Here are what the averages turn up in the numbers:

1 vs. 100 (Saget)
Week of November 4th: 239,000 viewers
Week of November 11th: 233,000 viewers
Week of November 18th: 266,000 viewers

For a re-acquisition with some advertisement, these aren't horrific numbers overall. Sure, runs of Karn Feud from 2006 beat out these runs of 1 vs 100 from the same year, but that's because it's Family Feud, simply, GSN's top rated show. 1 vs. 100 is a prime performer on Friday nights now, developing a fine number that GSN hasn't been able to do since 2011 (on a Friday night.)

The Chase
Week of November 4th: 270,000 viewers
Week of November 11th: 224,000 viewers
Week of November 18th: 259,000 viewers

Numbers for new runs of The Chase on Tuesday nights have not lit the world on fire (for GSN standards, that is) but have also done way more decent than it appears from these numbers. Most reruns of The Chase have been around 250,000 to 300,000 viewers, with a few scattered runs down towards the lower 100,000's. It is upsetting that the weeks of November 11-17 & November 18-24, 1 vs. 100 reruns averaged better than The Chase.
