  1. Blockbusters averaged higher than Super Password did the week prior, I think it'll do well.

    Shop til You Drop might be down a little from where Karn Feud was, but I think it'll improve over time. Karn Feud at 5pm probably won't last long, especially with a number of airings under 200k.

    As always, I bring in the weekend report:

    10:00am Whammy! 323k
    10:30am Love Triangle 229k

    Sunday night:
    12:30am 1 vs. 100 199k
    1:30am Love Triangle 156k

    The solution is simple; Love Triangle OUT, Lingo IN.

  2. The Pyramid(Richards) and Chain Reaction(Lane) are Too Overrated & just as boring as Dywer IGaS, MG98, CS2001, LC98 and Camoflaouge(Lodge). I think 21st century Feud(Karn/O'Hurley/Harvey) gets enough credit for the modern game shows.

    Classics are still the best on GSN
