"Celebrity Name Game" Expected To Be Renewed For Second Season

After showing a solid household rating average during November sweeps, it looks like Celebrity Name Game might be sticking around for another season. During the sweeps month, The Meredith Vieira Show and Hot Bench, the rookie court show created and produced by Judge Judy Sheindlin, were both renewed for a second season with respective averages of a 1.2 and a 1.7. Debmar Mercury’s Celebrity Name Game and Warner Bros.’ talk show The Real are expected to be renewed after holding steady with a 1.3 and a 1.0 rating. This is a big boost to the U.S. syndicated market after a lackluster performance last year with only one first-year show averaging above a 1.0 (Queen Latifah, 1.1). 

Celebrity Name Game has also kept a good pace with the new syndicated shows in the key daytime demo of women 25-54 including entering November sweeps by leading all new syndicated shows in the category. In the week ending December 7, the series maintained its 1.2 rating and has yet to surpassed it since the show hit its current season-high of a 1.3 on the week of November 23.
