“Jeopardy” Ratings Rocket with Buck

“Jeopardy” Ratings Rocket with Buck

The season’s final Jeopardy guest host, sportscaster Joe Buck, scored the show’s best Nielsens (13 week high 5.2 live plus same day national rating, up 16% from the week before) since the week of May 10, 2021.

Year to year the beleaguered game show was up 18% with Buck on board.

The only other top tier strip of any type to move up from week one year ago was Live with Kelly and Ryan (1.7, up 13% year to year and up 6% week to week), which has been the No. 1 talk show for 14 weeks in a row.

An all repeat week of Dr. Phil (1.4, up 8%) was the second highest talker.

Some shows that had been heavily preempted by NBC’s coverage of the Olympics staged dramatic rebounds.  For example Kelly Clarkson (0.8, up 100%) and Access Hollywood (0.8, up 100%) both doubled their ratings coming out of the Games.

Other sharply higher entertainment magazines included Entertainment Tonight (11-week high 2.1, up 24%) and Extra (0.6, up 20%).

Of note Judge Judy (4.6, up 7%) was the top rated court show for the 1,299th week in a row or every week for the past 25 years.  Despite being mostly in reruns “Judy” averaged more than 6,700,000 viewers each day.
