Welcome once again to The Numbers Game, where we're always a favorite no matter who it's playing. This is Volume 30 of the blog that breaks down the numbers of our favorite show.
Amidst the Madness that pervades March, Phineas and Ferb checked in with new episode "Let's Bounce / Bully Bromance Breakup" last Friday night, March 16, seen by 2.941 million viewers. That figure is good for a 20 percent increase over the previous Friday night premiere of "Mom's in the House." In the Adults 18-49 demographic, it picked up a 0.4 rating.
While the total viewership numbers have been down thus far in 2012, the show remains very strong in its target age groups. The new episode was television's No. 2 program among Kids 2-11, falling just 3 percent shy of the top spot. Among both Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14, it was the No. 1 animated show on TV last week and No. 3 overall behind other Disney Channel Friday night shows. Furthermore, a 10AM airing on Saturday morning was the No. 3 program among Kids 2-11 and No. 4 in Kids 6-11, defeating an opposing airing of SpongeBob SquarePants in those demographics.
Phineas and Ferb returns to the new airwaves next week when "Quietest Day Ever / The Doonkelberry Imperative" premieres next Friday, March 30 at 9:00PM Eastern (8:00 Central) after episodes of Jessie and A.N.T. Farm. With that still being a week away, why don't you pass the time by voting for Phineas and Ferb to win a Kids' Choice Award? Until then, have a nice day, follow @RyanStoppable on Twitter, and remember...that the numbers never lie.
