  1. Mind of a Man is just killing prime time. The numbers in Friday and Saturday prime are awful, and the Wednesday first-runs aren't much better. The show is really dragging down the prime time average, so it's barely above the total day average. I expect GSN to cut back the show severely soon.

  2. Good to see Catch 21 take the top slot, but I have a feeling it, along with The Chase, will go the way of Chain Reaction and 5th Grader come April.

    Sale of the Century and Press Your Luck getting numbers just outside the top 60 also makes me happy.

    The American Bible Challenge did really well in its unexpected rerun slots, I think its combined 325k is one of the best rerun ratings it's ever gotten. I hope GSN will set a premiere date for Season 3 soon.

    The sherriwed marathon did really poorly compared to recent Friday night ratings, I personally think that marathon was a dumb idea in the first place.

  3. What was so special about Thursday the 13th?
    It wasn't a holiday.....
    Did a big name satellite company move the channel to a new location on the dial and people tuned in?

  4. There was a tremendous nor'easter snowstorm along much of the each coast between Wednesday and Friday. Pennsylvania took a big hit. My college closed down, as did all the schools in our area, and I'm sure a lot more people took the day and stayed inside.

    1. I don't know about that.
      East Coast is a fraction of the U.S.
      Don't forget, GSN is also available throughout the world via satellite.

      There must be another reason....

  5. Catch 21 is a stupid show and a is a waste of tv air time.
