So how did Steven Universe on its new night? Not as good as it did on Monday. In fact, it’s the second-lowest for the show as “Steven the Sword Fighter” drew just 1.098 million viewers and placing 36th, and that is with Teen Titans Go! as its lead-in (which placed 12th at 1.269M viewers). Regular Show took five of the top six spots on the CN charts.
For as relatively strong as Teen Titans Go! has been for Cartoon Network, the early returns are that it is not as strong a lead-in compared to Adventure Time and Regular Show. Hiatuses of more than two weeks also aren’t helpful. We’ll see how “Lion 2: The Movie” fares on April 23rd.

And thus as the week passes, another Crewniverse Recap.  For anyone who tuned in for Steven this week was welcomed by a Ninjago special (yay..).  It does make one ponder the choices CN makes due to the episode having just moved to Wednesdays.  Either way, next week is “Lion 2: The Movie” in which Steven and Amy (and lion) go off to the theater and hilarity ensues.  We’ll also be trying to snag some details from the Steven Universe Panel taking place this weekend at Wondercon Anaheim.  Enjoy.
