Ratings Corner: “Arcade Mania”


This is a reminder that with the ratings reports, only the numbers for the first airing of the episode count. The three-week hiatus for Steven Universe did not do any wonders. On its premier showing on Presidents Day, “Arcade Mania” drew an abysmal 1.005 million viewers and placed in a tie for 79th place among all programming on Cartoon Network with a rerun from the following Saturday. Granted, the episode aired 45 minutes later than it usually does, but given that it followed Spider-Man (2nd), The Hall of Game Awards (7th), and a sneak peek of Clearance that night (64th); that’s still a disappointing figure. The most-watched airing of Steven Universe was on Friday night when it placed 45th at 1.168 millions viewers.
