Page Six TV is averaging a 0.8 season to date live plus same day household rating, according to Nielsen Media Research, and a 0.5 among daytime’s key demographic of 25-54. In households, it’s running second to this season’s other new news strip, DailyMailTV, which was renewed for season two last week. The two shows tie among women 25-54.
