Additionally, as tweeted out yesterday, last week (August 31-September 6), GSN set their lowest primetime and total day figures since the week of May 18-24, 2015. Last week, Wednesday night was definitely the night that lowered the GSN numbers and most likely, many reruns of Steampunk'd crashed big around the schedule. Dog Eat Dog most likely lowered numbers in daytime, given how fast it was pulled from the daytime schedule. In the coming weeks, improvement will most likely come with a better (for the sake of ratings) Wednesday night lineup, the re-introduction of a solid late afternoon Deal or No Deal block and more Family Feud in Sunday early afternoons.


  1. Where are the 18 to 49 numbers?

    1. All the 18-49s and calculations with them are up now. The delay was that I asked for them yesterday, got them tonight but I couldn't post them until a couple hours later.

  2. Looks like Idiotest is making a comeback!
