Morning numbers for April 6-10

Morning numbers for the second week of daytime schedule changes, which include the additions of Shop 'Til You Drop and Catch 21 to mornings and the removal of Sale of the Century and The $25,000 Pyramid have been released. Here are the numbers and the comparison to the first week's numbers (March 30-April 3):

8:00am Match Game: 176K (up 4% from last week)
8:30am Match Game: 269K (up 9% from last week; up 35% from lead-in)
9:00am Card Sharks: 325K (up 7% from last week; up 17% from lead-in)
9:30am Press Your Luck: 278K (up 1% from last week; down 14% from lead-in)
10:00am Shop 'Til You Drop: 187K (up 9% from last week; down 33% from lead-in)
10:30am Catch 21: 188K (up 1% from lead-in)

In recap, Card Sharks was the highest rated show of the morning. The whole 8am-11am ET lineup improved over last week (Match Game and Shop 'Til You Drop improved the most). But once again, Shop 'Til You Drop severely crashed from its lead-in, Press Your Luck this week.


  1. My TiVo guide lists $oTC and $25K Pyramid back in their old timeslots as of April 27. I'm not sure if it's just old data that hasn't been scrubbed yet or if GSN is rethinking the changes they made.

  2. Casey Abell just posted the New GSN PDF Schedules for April 27-May 2 over at Game Show Follies. They show Shop Til You Drop and Catch 21 are still in the 10am hour, so it's probably just old data that hasn't been scrubbed yet.

    I know it's been 15-20 years, but do any viewer numbers exist from the game show blocks on USA and CBN morning/afternoons? I'd love to know how they did on major cable networks back in the day, especially before we all had 200-300 channels.
