Sam Champion’s Weather Channel Show Drops Further on Day 2

Forecast for ‘AMHQ’ offering grows progressively gloomy

The forecast is looking increasingly gloomy for Sam Champion’s new Weather Channel show “AMHQ.”

The ratings for former “Good Morning America” personality Champion’s new offering dropped even further from its Tuesday premiere, falling behind offerings such as “The Golden Girls” on the Hallmark Channel.

For the Tuesday episode, airing from 7 to 10 a.m., “AMHQ” averaged just 186,000 total viewers — a 10 percent drop from Monday’s already modest premiere, and a 21 percent decline from the previous four-week average in the timeslot.

Overall, Tuesday’s episode ranked 81st among all cable programs — behind Hallmarks’ “Golden Girls” HLN’s “Morning Express With Robin Meade” and Nick Cartoons.
