So if versions of Dan Povenmire, Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and company exist in Phineas and Ferb's dimension and create a cartoon there, then there's probably also a version of me who writes a blog about its TV ratings. Right? While you ponder that, I'll welcome you to Volume 34 of this dimension's The Numbers Game, the blog that breaks down the numbers of our favorite show.
Phineas and Ferb was new once again last week with "The Mom Attractor / Cranius Maximus", an effort that was unfortunately only witnessed by 2.244 million viewers. This accounts for a 24 percent decrease from "Delivery of Destiny / Buford Confidential" the previous week. It could certainly be argued that a certain movie and its No. 2 single day ticket sales of all time on Friday may have had something to do with it.
The new episode's best performance in the target demographics came among Kids 6-11, where it checked in at No. 5 on the week despite a 20 percent decrease from last week. It did not crack the top 10 among either Kids 2-11 or Tweens 9-14, due to what was likely a similar percentage drop. Finally, among Adults 18-49, viewership fell by 25 percent down to a 0.3 rating.
This week, Phineas and Ferb has its third all-new episode in as many weeks, as "Agent Doof / Minor Monogram" premieres tonight, Friday, May 11 at 8:30PM Eastern (7:30 Central) between new episodes of Jessie and Fish Hooks. Next week, The Numbers Game will be new once again to cover it. Until then, remember on this Mother's Day weekend that moms will always come through (they didn't save that episode for this weekend why exactly?), follow @RyanStoppable on Twitter, and remember always, in this dimension or any other...that the numbers never lie.

- ↑ Interestingly, a new Phineas and Ferb also premiered on opening day of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Part 2, responsible for the No. 1 single day ticket sales. While it only saw a 2 percent ratings decrease from the previous episode, July 15 was also a summer day (allowing kids to watch it in the afternoon) whereas May 4 is not (forcing them to watch in the evening and miss Phineas and Ferb).
