  1. Finally! Chain Reaction has replaced Harvey Feud for the highest rated program of the week! I hope this is a sign of things to come!

    Also, first time since July that Harvey Feud is not the highest rated program of the week, hopefully that is a good sign as well.

    What's My Line and I've Got a Secret aren't doing great, but they're not bombing.

    Love Triangle had a 149k decrease from its Whammy! lead-in. How long will it be before GSN finally takes it off the schedule?

  2. Love Triangle isn't going anywhere despite ratings. It brings in the Mind of a Man audience, which is why it's been on the schedule since July, when GSN was considering green-lighting Mind of a Man, and they did around a month after LT came back to the schedule.

    This time last year Harvey Feud was getting dull ratings, more lackluster than usual around the schedule but they'll perk by March again.

  3. I'm not the Mind of a Man audience, Love Triangle is one of the dumbest shows in GSN history, IMO, it's even worse than Family Trade. Shows like this are the reason why my viewership of GSN has slowly decreased year-by-year, and if GSN keeps this up, my viewership will continue to go down.

    The only reason the ratings will pick up in March is because 2012-13 Feud will be acquired, which will bring my viewership down even more.

    1. GSN is acquiring 2012-13 Feud? That's awesome.

    2. It's not for sure that GSN will acquire 2012-13 Feud, but knowing GSN, I'd say there's a 99% chance it will happen, likely toward the end of March.

  4. The numbers for the classics, STYD, etc are very concerning. Obviously WML and IGAS aren't really worth getting worked up about being in the 3am hour.
