RATINGS
 
Nickelodeon’s original special SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout, which aired Friday, July 12, at 7p, drew 2.2 million Total Viewers in its simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons. The special is the net’s highest-rated premiere with K6-11 since October 2017 (SpongeBob SquarePants The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom) and the highest-rated premiere with K2-11 since February 2018.
 
The Fourth of July holiday week, the session ending July 7, was no laughing matter for the top sitcoms. Category leader Big Bang Theory and Modern Family both fell to their lowest weekly ratings ever in syndication. Other major laffers losing altitude included Last Man Standing (2.1, down 5%) and Two and a Half Men (1.2, down 14%), which matched its series low. One of the very few strips to show strength breaking into positive territory was true crime kingpin Dateline.  
 
All the big quiz and giveaway shows also declined. Family Feud (5.7, down 7%) led the genre for a fourth straight week followed by Jeopardy! (new season low 5.1, down 9%), Wheel of Fortune (new season low 4.7, down 10%) and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (new season low 1.4, down 7%). Court shows actually held up well in daytime even though the daypart was hit hardest by the World Cup. The season’s No. 1 show, Judge Judy (5.6, down 5%), had only a minor dip despite being in reruns for part of the session. Meanwhile a six-week try-out for comedic game show Punchline (0.4/1 weighted metered market average, down 33% from its lead-ins and unchanged from its June 2018 time periods) debuted July 15.
