Monday’s show “averaged an 8.7 household rating Monday in the metered markets, according to Nielsen, its best since an 8.8 on Feb. 13, 2007.”
Last season, Jeopardy averaged a 7.0 during the February ratings period.
The computer wins again, (except in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, which saw a massive decrease in viewership).
Regardless, IBM must be happy. Monday and Tuesday’s shows were essentially half competition, half infomercial.
