Ratings for Friend Ship

Well, the upward march couldn’t last forever. Friend Ship got 1,647,000 viewers (though it did very well against the other cable-wide Friday premiers).

    Do you know how the other “bombs” have done? Since all use the same 6 PM EST US time it might be a fairer comparison of relative popularity.

      The Titans Bomb had about 500,000 more viewers per episode, Adventure Time about 200,000 less, Regular Show maybe 100-150,000 less, Clarence is on-target for 300,000 less, and Uncle Grandpa had some about 300,000 less and some much worse.

      TTG and Clarence are the only ones who have had their bombs relatively close to #StevenBomb3 though (heck, Clarence’s is going on right now), so their numbers are the most comparable.

        Thanks for checking on this.
        I guess I have to accept the fact that TTGo is clearly more popular. It looks like SU is a solid number two. I hope this leads to more SU related stuff being released – namely season long DVDs.

        I still believe that in on-line viewing after hours, SU drawing on a more diverse and older crowd probably is more popular, but have no data to support this.

        Thanks again.

          Well Internet interest does, now, seem to be far higher for Steven Universe than TTG. They started out roughly even and quite low, but as 2015 started (and especially after the first #StevenBomb aired) Steven Universe skyrocketed ahead; while TTG has improved by about 150% in the past year, Steven Universe has gone up well over 1,000%.

          The Wikipedia pages show the same story: Steven Universe being roughly 3x as popular as Teen Titans Go! (TV series), and the list of Steven’s episodes being 10x as popular as the list of TTG’s episodes.

          I mean, I might even make an post about the subject some day. It’s a bit of cheerleading, but as fans we are wont to fear the show’s cancellation and that’s just not in the cards no matter how you deal them.

            Thanks for the info about Wikipedia and internet activity.

            Well, at least confident that barring some total collapse in story telling or major scandal we’ll expect another year or two of the show – enough to wrap up the major story lines.

            Really interested to see how they play things out – quite often they go against “conventional afternoon cartoon wisdom”.

            Off topic but I just realized that “Historical Friction” uses a classic play within a play trope from Hamlet.
