The two shows tied at a 0.7 rating/2 share household average for primary runs in the metered markets. Page Six TV edged out Daily Mail TV among daytime's key demogrpahic of women 25-54, with a 0.5/2 versus Daily Mail’s 0.3/2.

Page Six TV increased its demographic ratings by 75% in New York, 80% in Baltimore and 100% in  Washington, D.C., over last year. The entertainment news magazine based on the New York Post’s famous gossip column also won its time period in the demo in Boston, Tampa and St. Louis. The show, which features a panel, is produced by Endemol Shine North America.
