Unlike many other things, there's one thing you can count on not to get hacked: The Numbers Game! I'm just saying. Anyways, welcome to Volume 20 of the blog that breaks down the numbers of our favorite show.
Season 3 continued last Friday night with "Ask a Foolish Question / Misperceived Monotreme" premiering on Disney Channel. The new episode drew only 2.562 million viewers, an increase over the previous two new episodes, and also a 25 percent gain over its new Fish Hooks lead-in. While that is a more Candace party-sized audience than we've seen in the past, on a night where not even Wizards of Waverly Place could do much better and only an NBA playoff game cracked the Cable Top 25, I don't believe it to be a cause for concern.
The new episode scored a 1.6 household rating on a 4.0 Kids 2-11 rating, good for No. 1 on Friday night cable in the show's target demographic, along with a 1.4 in Teens 12-17 and 0.3 in Adults 18-49. ETA: In fact, it was Friday night's No. 1 show on all of television with Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14, ranking in the top 10 for the week in both groups.
For something completely different, Phineas and Ferb's next new episode will be "Candace Disconnected / Magic Carpet Ride", airing Saturday, June 18 at 9:00 AM Eastern as we get ready for "Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension"...which will NOT be premiering on June 24th, although another new episode will be. Until then, follow me on Twitter, go Brewers!, and remember...that the numbers never lie.
