Toonami Ratings Thread 2.0

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I know. If you ask me, Toonami needs some kind of better incentive to get folks to watch the shows live, if it's competing with the likes of UFC and Live PD.

UPDATED: http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/showbuzzdailys-top-150-saturday-cable-originals-network-finals-6-8-2019.html

So now we know the whole lineup in total viewers:

6/8/19 - Total Viewers
Show Viewers Retention
MHA 486,000 #DIV/0!
DBS (P) 630,000 129.63%
AOTS3P2 413,000 65.56%
TPN 361,000 87.41%
SAO3 378,000 104.71%
JoJo4 348,000 92.06%
B. Clover 354,000 101.72%
Boruto 279,000 78.81%
Shippuden 265,000 94.98%
H×H 268,000 101.13%
AVERAGE 378,200 17th of 23 :/

Still, better than we've seen in almost a month in terms of total viewers!

I'm assuming it's probably mostly the Fox News crowd that watches it, considering their obsession with law enforcement. Maybe I'm alt-wrong.

But I personally don't find the concept all that interesting the few times I actually watched it on Friday (it's just like live Cops), and it has actually had an effect on the way law enforcement is carried out in several PDs that "star" its cops.

Plus its rise as a perpetual competitor to Toonami happened about the beginning of the Trump presidency, around the time Toonami's ratings went down.

Well it just sounds like you're making a generalization.

If like... some prominent leader on the production or Live PD or the company owning is is alt-right, then i would be even more pissed than before that it 100% beats Toonami every single week.

 they're lower again, which always seems to happen whenever Toonami moves up the whole block.

Which is ironic since 5 years ago a block always got MORE views the earlier it began.

Well, at least MHA's total viewer audience seems to be growing fairly steadily at 10:30 PM. Just 2.5 weeks ago on 5/25, it was a mere 414K. Last week on 6/8, it was 486K.

Not the most encouraging average, but look at how quickly the gap between MHA and its Family Guy lead-in is closing! That seems to indicate to me that new MHA Season 4 just MIGHT be worthy of carrying the block without DBS premieres beginning in October or November. By my math, DBS has 17 episodes left. There probably WILL be a marathon or two, so we're talking 5 months, which is probably enough time for MHA to grow its audience. The only problem is that MHA is almost out of episodes itself, down to 11 now, which means there will be 6 weeks of normal Toonami programming with DBS but no MHA, assuming Toonami will get Season 4. I see no reason why they wouldn't, but Hulu does have "fuck you" money, and we all saw what happened with One-Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100 Season 2...or did we? While the latter pretty famously is streaming on Crunchyroll/VRV dubbed and if it comes to Toonami, will be a mere network premiere, the former isn't dubbed anywhere, perhaps because Viz is notoriously slow with its dubs, as is also evidenced by the fact that we don't have JoJo Part 5 immediately following Part 4. But still, OPM S2 could be the planned "stopgap" between MHA S3 and MHA S4.

It is interesting that we already know what's replacing TPN (Gundam Origin) but we don't know what's replacing H×H, though it's out of here a week earlier. That indicates to me that the plan all along was probably not to throw a new premiere to 3 AM, and to bring back a single rerun in that timeslot. Perhaps they'll pull a One-Punch Man Episode 12 and air the Season 1 Finale of TPN twice that night, at 12 AM and 3 AM. Or Toonami just drops 3 AM and it goes back to [as]. But I digress. I believe the two shows they referred to that they can't mention were never H×H and SAO's replacements (SAO has 5 episodes left and ends 7/13), but perhaps instead were SAO and MHA's replacements? That would certainly be interesting...but given that AOT S3 Part 2 may only have a total 10 episodes, which means 7 episodes left, it's more worthy of a replacement, as opposed to the way S3 Part 1's rerun was handled. If you'll recall, it was left in the midnight timeslot directly following its premiere for a couple of weeks, but gradually pushed back over the course of its rerun to 2 AM, and then 3:30 AM in 2019. Even if reruns return following H×H, I don't see them doing anything like that in this current premieres-forward climate.

Hopefully we'll get some announcements as to new shows replacing these ending-soon shows soon, perhaps at SDCC. But at this time, I think it's safe to assume the replacement for H×H is probably either a rerun or a non-Toonami [as] show.

It's only 2 in the morning for me! But sometimes I'll give earlier shows in the lineup (using a combination of the West Coast Feed and DirecTV's 90-minute rewind feature) a 2nd look before going to bed.
