The show was pulling down a full 2.0 rating toward the end, which is excellent for a program that is syndicated at all odd hours of the day. In the neighboring market to where I live, the only affiliate carrying Seeker only carries it at 1:30 am on Saturday night!
The show has a lot of upside as those stations start moving Seeker to a better slot in recognition of how well it performs. Truth is, Seeker is probably the best syndicated first-run program since the late 1990s. I suspect after a few seasons it will be easy to claim it as the best first-run syndicated program ever.
