Someone will need to cheer up Star when I disclose the ratings for “Cheer Up Star” and “Qwest Buy.” Maybe get a charger for her wand? Maybe go to another dimension to recruit some monsters to zap? Monday’s episode drew an estimated 574,000 viewers on Disney XD. That represents a 31.6% drop-off from last week. The average of three airings on Disney XD is now 771,333. Recall that the first episodes aired on Disney Channel.
It will take a few more episodes to determine where the show will range on its own as Gravity Falls isn’t expected to return until Summer. It could be either on par with Star Wars: Rebels (500-750K apart from three episodes), or above that as the last two episodes were. The show is on at 8pm ET/7pm CT.

Let’s start with “Joy Ride.” Steven may have been ‘ungrounded’ from watching TV, but the viewership went back down to Earth a bit. “Joy Ride” drew an estimated 1.342 million viewers last Thursday. That represents a 22.4% drop from the previous week’s “Open Book.” It was still third-best among Cartoon Network’s Thursday night lineup behind Teen Titans Go! (1.853M) and Regular Show (1.946M) which received its highest viewership in over a month.
Of course, this Thursday (April 2nd) is the crossover episode with Uncle Grandpa.
