Sony Pictures Television saluted the late Merv Griffin by inserting a different Seinfeld episode into the syndication rotation Monday.
The salute was essentially for a member of the family, since SPT is the former Columbia Pictures Television, which bought Merv Griffin Enterprises in the mid-1980s.
Sony said the episode averaged a 2.4 household rating, up 14% from the previous Monday's 2.1. It was also up 18% in the key 18-49 demo, the company added.
