It has been a great run. Spanning over 3 1/2 years and 60 volumes, it has truly been a pleasure to bring you the biggest and best ratings news every so often. Welcome to Volume 60 of The Numbers Game, the blog that breaks down the numbers of our favorite show.
Phineas and Ferb hit the new airwaves once again on Friday, July 12 with "La Candace-Cabra / Happy Birthday, Isabella". 2.689 million viewers showed up for the party, a slight 2 percent increase from the previous week. It did so on the strength of a 1.7 household rating. Nonetheless, it was last among Disney Channel's four original programs on the evening, albeit by a statistically insignificant margin.
Amongst all Disney Channel programming on the week, Phineas and Ferb could only muster a No. 13 ranking, down nine spots from last week. As a result, it is no surprise that the show failed to crack the Top 10 in any of its target age groups. News was better among Adults 18-49, where viewership increased 13 percent despite staying at a 0.4 rating; Phineas and Ferb led the evening's Disney programming among that age bracket.
As a reminder, Phineas and Ferb returns on Friday, August 2 at 9:00 PM Eastern (8:00 Central) with "Love at First Byte", right after the Gravity Falls SEASON FINALE "Gideon Rises" at 8:30. The Numbers Game...will be back to cover it once it gets settled into the NEWWWW The Numbers Game World Headquarters at Casa del Ryan!
