  1. Looks like the naked truth is the hyped episode of IdioTest...barely got ratings 😂

    1. Viewers really tuned out of the new episode. Look at the massive decline from Family Feud and also rejection from 10pm to 10:30pm (a normal episode).

      A pretty bad night for Idiotest between small 18-49 viewers and median age well in to the 60's (same for Family Feud).

    2. Non related, but ABC's To Tell The Truth reboot did fine in total episodes. The 2 episodes had 5.2 million and a 1.0 and a 1.2 in the demo. Looks like that show skewed old a bit. Also, last Sunday's Celebrity Feud rerun did solid with 5 million and a 1.0 in the demo. I watched the nude Idiotest and it was I think the worst episode I've seen on the show. Bad gameplay and really air headed contestants.

    3. I am very impressed with how the Celebrity Family Feud reruns performed. That's a very positive sign for the new runs in a few weeks to likely show that Celebrity Family Feud was not a one summer fluke.

    4. There was an intended second rerun at 10 pm, but was rightly pulled for a 20/20 special covering the tragedy in Orlando. Another rerun airs June 23rd at 10 pm after the BattleBots premiere.

  2. Somewhat off topic.
    Just thinking what if GSN lost rights to family feud. How would they fill all those hours. What do you think?

    1. A lot of what else is doing well on GSN now in endless reruns. Deal or No Deal, Idiotest, Chain Reaction, Catch 21. Stuff like The Chase in reruns would get brought back as well as Karn Feud (with more O'Hurley Feud).
