'Idiotest' and 'Baggage On The Road' NEW tonight in re-designed schedule

Idiotest and Baggage On The Road are in their third week of new episodes for 2015. After the modest premiere week ratings (averaged 379,000 viewers in the hour) and a slump in ratings the second week (averaged 249,000 viewers in the hour), GSN has moved Baggage On The Road to a new timeslot, which is an hour later at 10pm ET.

Tonight's schedule (all times ET):
8:00pm: Idiotest (new)
8:30pm: Idiotest (new)
9:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey) (12-13 season; HD season)
9:30pm: Family Feud (Harvey) (12-13 season; HD season)
10:00pm: Baggage On The Road (new)
10:30pm: Baggage On The Road (new)

Ratings prediction: Idiotest will rise from last week and the Steve Harvey Family Feud direct lead-in will help Baggage On The Road slightly, but not massively.


  1. Predictions:

    Idiotest 400k
    Harvey Feud 500k
    Baggage on the Road 300k

    1. You're guessing the entire Idiotest hour too high.

      My predictions:
      8:00pm Idiotest: 408K
      8:30pm Idiotest: 309K
      9:00pm Family Feud: 289K
      9:30pm Family Feud: 319K
      10:00pm Baggage On The Road: 304K
      10:30pm Baggage On The Road: 334K

  2. I wouldn't count out BOTR. It had one bad week in ratings. Maybe Steve can help Jerry, but not much. Then again, Mind Of A Man didn't get good ratings in its last few episodes even with Harvey as its lead in.

    1. Baggage On The Road *really* had one bad week in ratings, which was its premiere week (1/7), and then one horrendous week in ratings last week (1/14). I haven't seen anything bomb like that since Mind of a Man (which was GSN's lowest rated original thus far this decade).

  3. We may see advance schedule PDF's for the month of February.

    1. The February 2-8 advanced schedule is now available. No major changes.
