Ratings Report: MLP100, StevenBomb 2, and Star

007 - Derpy Scrunchface

For “Slice of Life”, fans around the world joined in meetup groups and/or attended special screenings like yours truly did at MLP-MSP in Minnesota, or even watched online. None of that counts in the 431,000 estimated that watched the show on Discovery Family. Easily the most disappointing figure since “Pinkie Pride’s” 459,000 back on February 1st, 2014.

I have mentioned the challenges repeatedly for MLP to attain the ratings success of Season 4 from the 11-month wait between seasons, the bye weeks within the season, that we’re in Summer, and that it’s on a channel that’s mostly included in premium packages for digital cable and maybe dish providers. The show would easily get more viewers on Cartoon Network or Disney, but they would likely get a lousy time slot as well since it is not their show. That’s all I’m going to say about that.


Steven Universe began the 2nd #StevenBomb on Monday night and just missed the two million mark with “Sworn to the Sword” (1.980M).”Winter Forecast” was the last episode to attain that back on February 19th of this year. Monday’sepisode was the most-watched of Season Two so far and brings its average for the season to 1.663 million per episode.


Star vs. the Forces of Evil also came back on Monday night and drew decent figures in its first new showing since April. The pairing of “Mewberty” and “Pixtopia” drew an estimated 737,000 viewers on Disney XD. That raises its average on Disney XD to 724,200 an episode.

Look to the sidebar at the home page for the latest episodes for each of these shows.

Ratings Report: MLP and Star

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.

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.
