Saturday saw MLP do far better with the fourth episode of Season Five than it did with the fourth episode of Season Four (“Daring Don’t” drew 397K). “Bloom and Gloom” drew an estimated 539,000 viewers on Saturday. That is a jump of nearly 29% from last week. It becomes the second most-watched episode of the young fifth season and the first non-finale episode since the start of Season Three to out draw at least one part of the Season Premier. MLP swept the top five programs for the week starting April 13th on Discovery Family. The average after four episodes is now and even 510,000 per episode.
As for Star vs. the Forces of Evil, it drew just slightly more people on Monday night. The pairing of “Diaz Family Vacation” and “Brittney’s Party” drew an estimated 570,000 viewers on Disney XD. That is a slight drop from last week and makes it the least-watched airing in its young season. It’s average for the last four episodes is at 721,000. When you factor in the series premier’s 1.139 million on XD back on March 30th, the average is 804,600 per episode. Even so, it is a fourth straight decline in viewership week-to-week for the Princess from Mewni.
