  • Ryan Stoppable

    896 for Phineas & Ferb and 818 for Jessie seem like they *have* to be typos.

  • Kyle

    Are you sure that is SmackDown!’s viewership?

  • Mr Mikey

    Wow big drop for Smackdown.

  • Bryan

    Those can’t be total viewers for all, right? 1.373 and 1.164 million for SpongeBob from 6-7 and the under 1 million for Disney Channel’s premieres CAN’T be right.

  • Nathan

    These numbers can’t be correct…

  • darius

    I m sure there s a mistake with the Smacjdown rating based on the 18-49 ratings

  • Luis

    Something about Banshee ratings?

  • darius

    Probably smackdown had the 2.8 million viewers of Duck Dinasty!

  • AJ

    Um… These numbers are NOT correct… Disney Channel premieres under one million? I don’t think so…

  • holiuh

    Banshee?

  • Anthony

    Wow a 0.6 for Merlin. Great for it, going out with a bang!

  • Kaylie

    These Disney numbers are dead wrong. They pull better total viewers #’s than 95% of these shows in reruns. Must be a typo.

  • Zoniako

    Does anyone know the Banshee ratings?

  • Jeff

    numbers are all wrong, smackdown should be 2958

  • Guiguioh

    According to PWtorch, Smackdown did 2.89 millions viewers. ( http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/WWE_News_3/article_68060.shtml )

    So the post here is correct in demos ratings put screw up in viewership for almost every line.

    “So the post here is correct in demos ratings put screw up in viewership for almost every line.”

    You’re right. The table is mis-sorted. We’ll get that fixed.

  • Nathan

    Looks like JaNEWary is turning out to be JanFAILary for Disney. No pun intended..

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Sara Bibel

    The viewership column has been fixed. thanks for pointing it out.

  • Soniaq

    Si ya reacomodaron el rating

  • jamie

    actually @Nathan, looking at the ratings, JaNEWary has been nothing but a success for Disney channel.
