Ratings Corner – Steven’s Lion

In somewhat unrelated news to StatManDan’s ratings report, it has recently been announced by the NY Times that Turner Network is planning on expanding Adult Swim.  [AS] which just turned ten years old is currently holding rank over the other hosts of late night, fetching better viewer ratings than Leno, Letterman, Coco and Stewart & Colbert.  Starting March 31st the channel (which piggy backs on Cartoon Network) will begin airing at 8pm est and run to its traditional 6am slot.  Sadly I’m sure they’ll fill it with Family Guy and The Cleveland Show (or better American Dad & King of the Hill).

This of course is going to affect CN’s Monday Night lineup, as Steven Universe has been playing at 8pm (though next episode is scheduled for 2/17 @ 8:45pm).  It’ll be interesting to see how the show fairs.  Thanks to the few people who sent in the news article about AS.  And now for your report from StatManDan.

We’ve been dealing with second-lows for many of the shows we’ve covered thus far in the ratings report. This is actually an improvement in this is a “third-low.” “Steven’s Lion” drew 1,512 millon viewers and placed 18th among programming on Cartoon Network. Both are third-lowest in terms of viewership and placement. Adventure Time was once again the top show on CN with 2.213M viewers with Wednesday’s Ninjago taking second and third this week. There was still a significant drop-off when preceded by Regular Show. This week’s was 20%. From Adventure Time, the dropoff was 31.6%.
