‘Press Your Luck’ Flops 40% From Last Week’s Premiere Rating, ‘Match Game’ Falls Even Further

But ABC still finishes first in key demo

“Press Your Luck” and “Match Game” plummeted on Sunday from last week’s respective season-premiere ratings, but ABC was still able to top primetime in the key demo.

NBC settled for third place for the evening, when the Season 7 premiere of “Hollywood Game Night” proved to be no winner.

ABC was first in ratings with a 0.6 rating/4 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 4.4 million, according to preliminary numbers. “America’s Funniest Home Videos” at 7 p.m. had a 0.6/4 and 4.5 million viewers. At 8, “Celebrity Family Feud” put up a 0.9/6 and 5.7 million viewers. “Press Your Luck” at 9 got a 0.6/4 and 3.9 million viewers. At 10, “Match Game” managed a 0.5/3 and 3.3 million viewers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 0.5/3 and first in viewers with 5 million. At 7, “60 Minutes” received a 0.6/4 and 7.6 million viewers. Repeats followed.

NBC was third in ratings with a 0.4/2 and in viewers with 2 million. “Hollywood Game Night” at 7 got a 0.3/2 and 1.9 million viewers. Reruns followed.

Fox, Univision and Telemundo tied for fourth in ratings, each with a 0.3/2. Fox was fourth in total viewers with 1.2 million, Univision was fifth with 1 million and Telemundo was sixth with 754,000.

For the first 23 minutes of primetime on the east coast, Fox aired the conclusion of a NASCAR race. For the rest of the evening — and for the entirety of the evening in most time zones — the network aired all repeats.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.1/1 and in viewers with 451,000, airing all reruns.
