We all know better. We know what the actual first rule of Van Stomm's Rules is: you do not talk about Van Stomm's Rules. What you do talk about...is TV ratings in The Numbers Game! This is Volume 49 of the blog that breaks down the numbers of our favorite show.
Phineas and Ferb hit the new airwaves again on Friday, January 18 with "Bully Bust". 2.993 million viewers succeeded in watching it the first time, a 12 percent decrease from the previous week. It finished 2nd out of 3 new Disney Channel episodes on the evening, falling slightly behind Jessie but topping a new Fish Hooks.
Performances among target age groups were down from last week as well, but exact numbers could not be found for the Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14 age groups; the new episode did finish outside the top 5 in both categories however. Among Adults 18-49, viewership fell by 20 percent to a 0.4 rating, although Phineas and Ferb topped its Disney counterparts on the evening.
Phineas and Ferb is back in action tomorrow, Friday, Ferb-ruary 1 at 9:00PM Eastern (8:00 Central) with the new episode "My Sweet Ride", five years to the day from when "Flop Starz" officially kicked off the series' run. Apparently, there's also an NFL championship game or something this weekend. The Numbers Game will be back next week with full coverage of the new episode. Until then, it's fun to work at the O.W.C.A., follow @RyanStoppable on Twitter, and remember...that the numbers never lie.
