Family Feud and J! ratings

Post by legendneverdies »

As per Buzzerblog, Feud is at a 3.9 rating as of two weeks ago, and J! less than a point away at 4.8(for the week of 9/10 when J! and WOF were still in reruns, and Feud debuted its new season). Feud has beaten J! in important female demographics and is tied with WOF in some as well. Feud has gotten its highest syndicated ratings since the Ray Combs era of the show more than 20 years ago. This could conceivably end the more than 26 years of WOF and J! being the two most watched syndicated game shows, as no show has really come this close to their ratings certainly since the 80s.

Everyone loves Steve Harvey, I guess.

^I also think Steve Harvey is part of the reason why the show's getting better-than-average ratings. There's just no way that Louie Anderson, Richard Karn, or even John O'Hurley hosting would have helped Feud be more than just your average daily game show.

Everyone watches Feud because they force a penis joke on every question.

Watched a few episodes recently... I thought Harvey was great. Really funny.

It's more of a Feudian slip.

It's a long, long way from 3.9 to 4.8. I thought this show aired only on GSN; I had no idea it was in syndication.

Really, you're talking about a nearly 25% bump in viewership. And check out the words I highlighted in the original post quoted above.

Steve Harvey's alright. He sometimes takes a little too much time on a joke, but it looks like he also channels some of Dawson's better habits at hosting.

Because I have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old, I found it hilarious that this comment was made by someone called TenPoundHammer.

So the Power Players reruns weren't drawing big ratings?
