    CBS got most of it's stations to agree to carry Sajak, promoted the show brilliantly, and sent the host off to a roaring start with a 6.2 rating, a full point higher than Johnny Carson's. That didn't even hold up for a week. Sajak was soon sinking through the 3 rating level. It got so bad that the show was having trouble getting audiences to come to the studio for the tapings. Yet Sajak didn't change his demeanor, or his show, at all. Perth came to regard him as one of the least ambitious people in show business, observing that Sajak would come in at noon, tape his show from 5:30 to 6:30 and he would be out the door by 6:45.
