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

Calculated by ratings over past five weeks (February 24-March 30, 2014) 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 these percentages, here's what I think GSN should do.

    Put Password Plus at noon and move 1 vs 100 (Inaba) to 10:30am weekends.

    Put Chain Reaction in the 3pm hour and move Syndie DOND to the 11am hour weekends.

    Put Woolery Lingo in the 4pm hour and keep Shop Til You Drop on Sunday nights.

    Put Bingo America in the 5pm hour as it has a Bingo tie-in with Lingo and keep 1 vs 100 (Saget) on Friday and Saturday nights.

    When Mind of a Man (hopefully) leaves, Harvey Feud will likely get the entire Wednesday night block and its Saturday 8pm slot will hopefully be a rerun slot for The American Bible Challenge.

  2. STYD should/will be in the morning lineup sooner than later.
    Saget's 1 vs 100 is a failure at 5. Remove it and replace it with DOND.
    Remove DOND at 3 and replace it with Chain Reaction.

    8am Match Game
    8:30am: Blockbusters
    9am: PYL
    9:30am: SoTC
    10am: STYD
    10:30am: STYD
    11am: 25k Pyramid
    11:30am: 100k Pyramid
    Noon: LINGO (Woolery)
    12:30: Karn Feud
    1pm: O'Hurley Feud
    2pm: Catch 21
    3pm: Chain Reaction
    4pm: Lingo (Woolery)
    4:30pm: Karn Feud
    5pm DOND

  3. Get rid of Super Password for STYD? Are you crazy?

    STYD is garbage and shouldn't even be on the air.

  4. I'd rather the weekday schedule look like this:
