"Der Kinderlumper" struck on Friday, Ferb-ruary 15, stuffing 3.140 million viewers into its theoretical gundersack. This marked a 17 percent decrease from the previous episode, perhaps owing to the new later time slot. It was good for No. 3 among Disney's originals on the evening, falling behind episodes of Jessie and Gravity Falls but topping Fish Hooks.
Unsurprisingly, viewership also decreased among the target age groups. Phineas and Ferb earned a 6.5 rating among Kids 6-11, down 15 percent from two weeks prior. Interesting, viewership among Kids 2-11 only slipped by 11 percent to a 4.9 rating due to an increase in the coveted preschool demographic. The Tweens 9-14 age group checked in with a 5.0 rating, also good for an 11 percent decline. Finally, among Adults 18-49, ratings fell by 12 percent, remaining at a 0.5 rating.
