SpongeBob Squarepants

How absorbent is the yellow and porous one?  Well, sometimes it is best to just let the numbers do the talking. SpongeBob Truth or Square and SpongeBob had 64 airings on Nickelodeon and I've included the average audience numbers for all of them below.  Newcomer Fanboy & Chum Chum had a nice debut, but outside of the two episodes that made the weekly top 25, there was only one additional airing on Nickelodeon (at 10:30am on Sunday, where it averaged 2.709 million).  There were a few episodes of both SpongeBob and Fanboy on Nick Toons, but they don't do nearly as well as the airings on the mother ship, and I didn't include them.

So yeah, 49 out of the 64 airings did better than the excellent season finale of Mad Men (2.323 million).  Don Draper may be cool, but he is not very porous when it comes to soaking up the viewers.

For the SpongeBob lovers among us, here is more information on the Friday Truth or Square premiere.
