After some uninspiring ratings performances throughout the Time Shift Weekend, Phineas and Ferb found its ratings stride once again with "The Remains of the Platypus", which aired last Friday, Ferb-ruary 24. Checking in with 3.337 million viewers, the new episode was Friday night's No. 2 rated cable program, topping new episodes of Jessie, A.N.T. Farm and Fish Hooks in the process. While not quite strong enough for a Cable Top 25 appearance, it was the most-watched Phineas and Ferb episode of 2012 to date.
As good as those figures are, the episode's performance in its target demographics was even stronger. In Kids 6-11, "The Remains" was television's No. 2 program on the week, falling just 2 percent short of a new Victorious episode for the top spot. It also ranked No. 3 among Kids 2-11 and No. 4 with Tweens 9-14, scoring the highest ratings of the evening among all three age groups. In the Adults 18-49 age group, the episode picked up a 0.5 rating.
As mentioned above, we are celebrating the 2nd annual Platypus Day this weekend, and Disney is celebrating with two new Phineas and Ferb segments: "Mom's in the House" airs tonight, Friday, March 2 at 8:00PM Eastern (7:00 Central), and "Perry The Actorpus" premieres tomorrow morning, Saturday, March 3 at 8:00AM Eastern (7:00 Central) on Emoticon and then at 7:45PM on Disney Channel proper. You can celebrate by voting for Phineas and Ferb to win its first Kids Choice Award on March 31st. Until then, follow @RyanStoppable on Twitter, and remember...lie never numbers the that.
