Yes, yes, I completely understand. What you really want to know is how many people watched The Klimpaloon and Giant Floating Baby Head Hour. Unfortunately, attempts to contact my 1st Dimension counterpart were unsuccessful, so we'll have to make do with what we have: Volume 43 of The Numbers Game! This is the blog that breaks down the numbers of our favorite show.
"Ferb TV" went on the air last Friday, September 7, where it was seen by 3.614 million viewers, a 16 percent decrease from the year-to-date high of "Where's Perry? (Part Two)". While falling just shy of the Cable Top 25, that was good enough for No. 1 on Friday cable, beating new episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants, Jessie, A.N.T. Farm and Fish Hooks among others.
The new episode continued to perform strongly in its target age groups. The best result came among Kids 2-11, where it checked in as a close No. 2 behind a Saturday morning SpongeBob rerun. Phineas and Ferb also made that list at No. 10 with a Saturday morning airing of its own. "Ferb TV" also ranked No. 2 among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14 despite similar drops in all three age groups (21 percent among Kids 2-11, 19 percent in Kids 6-11 and 22 percent in Tweens 9-14). Finally, among Adults 18-49, viewership declined by 10 percent, but the rating stayed at 0.5.
Phineas and Ferb returns to the new airwaves tonight, Friday, September 14 at 9:00PM Eastern (8:00 Central) with "When Worlds Collide". Emoticon also gets a new episode this week, as "What'd I Miss?" premieres Monday, September 17 at 7:15PM Eastern (6:15 Central) after the premiere of Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja. Unless any alien planets run us over in the meantime, The Numbers Game will return to cover them next weekend. Until then, follow @RyanStoppable on Twitter, go Brewers!, and remember...that the numbers never lie.
