  1. I thought I heard all those TV channels turning off GSN last Sunday at 8. All I can say is WOW!! I've never seen a network lose 2/3 of their viewers.

    1. Keep in mind, people who watched the 7:30 Family Feud more likely flipped over to ABC to watch Celebrity Family Feud at 8. That's probably why Skin Wars was put at 8 pm. Congrats to Celebrity Family Feud for being summer's #1 new series.

    2. I think it was Celebrity Family Feud that impacted GSN's ratings so negatively that night. The week before, Skin Wars did not drop nearly as much:

    3. It's nice to see a 12:30 run of Harvey Feud put up nearly 465k.

    4. I still thought in the past that Harvey Feud put up slightly better numbers in the noon hour.

    5. Correction: slightly better averages in the noon hour that would rise more from Deal or No Deal.

      Of course, 465K is very impressive

    6. I think Harvey Feud will last a long time in the noon slot.

    7. Yes, I knew ABC Feud was the main reason for the drop, but that's a huge drop and then to jump back up again. I have no interest in Skin Wars and never will, but judging from ratings after the first runs, GSN better get all the money they can on new eps cuz rerun value will be very low.

    8. The rerun value on Skin Wars we already know is bad. These competition series do not rerun well like Idiotest, The Chase, Chain Reaction, etc., since fans of the show know the outcome and the contestants are familiar. Remember Dancing with the Stars?

      The dip shows that viewers would rather see Family Feud in that slot and that they most likely tuned to ABC.

      Feud rules, I assume.

    9. I'm being 100% serious here: In sports they always have a betting line of over/under for the totals. Tonight is episode 2 of ABC Harvey Celeb Feud. My own personal survey is to get your predictions for the following:
      (1) Times 'Ass' will be said-Over/under 5...
      (2) Times penis or other name for male body part will be mentioned-Over/Under 6.

      Let the voting begin.

    10. well the teams are fake celebs…. some dancers and some single people that are attention whores. ill say those words are said 30 times each and a group orgy will break out during fast money.

  2. Skin Wars does not rerun well.
    I bet if they showed Season one episodes on a weekend only trial run, the ratings wouldn't fare too well regardless of counter programming.

  3. Does anybody know all the season 3 mall configurations of Shop 'til You Drop?
