After one week in the sun as the sole number one game show, Family Feud (7.2 live plus same day national Nielsen rating, down 3% from the week before) was joined at the top of the category by Jeopardy (7.2, up 1%) in the session ending April 19.
Wheel of Fortune (5.8, down 15%) was third.
The closely-watched talk show race went to Live with Kelly and Ryan (2.2, down 4%) for the fourth week in a row as usual leader Dr Phil (2.0, down 5%) again ran into pandemic preemptions. Not far behind was Ellen DeGeneres (1.9, up 6%).
One of the very few double digit gainers in first-run was newcomer Tamron Hall (1.1, up 10%), which matched its series high and rose 25% in the key W25-54 demo despite being battered by COVID-19 news preemptions in the biggest markets. The popular Hall, who has been featuring fresh content from her home, packed in daily auds of well over 1.4-million viewers on average.
Judge Judy (6.4, up 2%) continued to preside over all daytime shows by a wide margin even though the strip was in repeats every day. “Judy” also extended its winning streak among the courtrooms to 1,230 weeks.
Among magazines Extra (1.1, up 10%) was the only show in positive territory, moving up to tie TMZ (1.1, down 8%). Compared to last year at this time, “Extra” also scored the biggest increase in the category, improving 10%.
