What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, the Press Your Luck TV series is a revival of the 1980s daytime series which ran for three seasons on CBS. Hosted by Elizabeth Banks, the show features contestants squaring off to answer questions in a game of wits, strategy, and high stakes. During each game, three contestants compete against each other by answering questions to earn spins on the Big Board. Contestants then use their spins to win cash and prizes while trying to avoid the WHAMMY, who could take all of their winnings and leave them with nothing. The winning contestant moves on to the bonus round to face the WHAMMY in a final battle for the chance to win a million dollars.
Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of Press Your Luck averaged a 0.46 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.42 million viewers in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Compared to season three, that’s down by 7% in the demo and up by 6% in viewership. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
