|“||Because really, who gets up that early on a Saturday morning?||”|
You want to know who gets up that early on a Saturday morning? Well, I'll tell you who does that - people who need to go into work that morning. Now that I've surrendered my credibility, welcome to The Numbers Game! This is Volume 52 of the blog that breaks down the numbers of our favorite show.
Phineas and Ferb kicked off Platypus Day weekend on Friday, March 1 with "Sidetracked". 2.980 million viewers boarded the ratings train for the new episode, a 5 percent decrease from two weeks prior. This marks the show's lowest total viewership for a new episode in 2013 thus far, a smidge lower than "Bully Bust" in January.
As it so often is, the total viewership results were reflected amongst the target age groups. The episode earned a 5.8 rating among Kids 6-11, good for No. 4 on the week despite a 10 percent decrease from the previous episode. Among Kids 2-11, Phineas and Ferb checked in at No. 9 with a 4.4 rating, a fall of 11 percent. Ratings for the Tweens 9-14 age group were not available from the usual sources. Finally, viewership among Adults 18-49 increased by 6 percent, staying at a 0.5 rating.
Phineas and Ferb returns to the new airwaves on Friday, March 29 at 9:00PM Eastern (8:00 Central) with the Disney Channel premiere of the other Platypus Day episode, "Primal Perry". The Numbers Game will have full ratings coverage on the flipside of Opening Day. Until then, FARVEL!!!, follow @RyanStoppable on Twitter, and remember...that the numbers never lie.
