The Boys of Summer Vacation returned to the new airwaves on Friday, July 6 with "Doofapus". On a night where Disney Channel couldn't crack the 3 million mark, likely due to the holiday week, Phineas and Ferb fought its way to 2.668 million viewers, a 31 percent decrease from the year-to-date high two weeks prior. This was good for No. 4 among Disney Channel's five new episodes that night, 10 percent shy of the night-leading (and The Numbers Game approved) Gravity Falls.
Phineas and Ferb did rank highly amongst its target age groups. Its best performance came in Kids 6-11 where the show checked in at No. 4, higher than the previous episode despite a 25 percent drop. The show also achieved the No. 4 ranking in Kids 2-11 with a 28 percent decline there. Finally, in Tweens 9-14, it ranked No. 7 on the week behind a 23 percent decrease in viewers. In Adults 18-49, viewership slipped by 33 percent, all the way down to a 0.3 rating.
Our favorite show actually has two new episodes coming up soon: "Norm Unleashed" premieres this Friday, July 20 at 9:00PM Eastern (8:00 Central), followed by the highly-anticipated "Where's Perry? Part 1" at a special time, THURSDAY, July 26 at 9:00PM Eastern (8:00 Central). The Numbers Game will be back to cover "Norm Unleashed" sometime that weekend. Until then, watch the Phineas and Ferb panel from Comic-Con, follow @RyanStoppable on Twitter, and remember...that the numbers never lie.
