Ah, Boxing Day - the one day every year that encourages you to wear oversized red gloves and punch people in the face. Here at The Numbers Game, though, we have something else to celebrate: Volume 46 of the blog that breaks down the numbers of our favorite show.
Four new episodes aired during my absence; the first of these was "What'd I Miss?" on Friday, September 28. 2.429 million viewers did not miss it, an 8 percent decrease from two weeks prior, but 34 percent higher than the since-cancelled Code: 9. Among the target age groups, te episode was only able to crack the top 10 among Kids 6-11, where it slotted in at No. 9 behind top-ranked Gravity Falls on a 12 percent ratings decline. Finally, viewership among Adults 18-49 remained steadier, slipping by only 4 percent to remain at a 0.4 rating.
The Boys of Summer Vacation hopped on the "Road to Danville" for their next new episode on Friday, October 26. This episode fared better, drawing 2.732 million viewers to top four Disney Channel originals on the evening. This was good for a 12 percent increase over the previous episode. Viewership among Kids 6-11 increased by 14 percent, although this was still only good for No. 9 on the week; the episode checked in at No. 9 among Tweens 9-14 as well. Among Adults 18-49, viewership rebounded by 11 percent but it wasn't enough to move the ratings needle off of 0.4.
Phineas and Ferb returns to the new airwaves with "Fly On the Wall" on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 9:00PM Eastern (8:00 Central). Before that, though, The Numbers Game has 2 more back episodes to get caught up on, as well as the world-famous 4th Annual Year-In-Review-inator! Until then, I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, follow @RyanStoppable on Twitter, and remember...that the numbers never lie.
