    I thought Phineas and Ferb would’ve done much better. It did pretty good anyways.

  • Jon23812

    Wander Over Yonder did terribly, hopefully it does better September 13th.

  • Michael

    Horrible for a crossover phineas and Ferb
    And terrible premiere for Wander over yonder
    Especially in adults

  • Nick

    Disney hasn’t done really good with animated shows in a long time, Phineas & Ferb used to get 3-4 million viewers, now it’s lucky to get 3 million.

  • Nick

    It still surprises me how well Continuum is doing on Fridays.

  • Michael

    Maybe wander over yonder will rise Gravity
    Falls premiered with 3.4 million it grew and I
    Had a feeling it would premiere low

  • s9o

    terrible ratings, even lower than SBTY, even with all the promotion.

  • Michael

    I think Wander over yonder had horrobe promotion

  • Cheryblosen

    Wonder over yonder had to of bad terrible promotion because I watch Disney channel a lot and I haven’t ever heard of it

  • rob60990

    So I’m not the only one watching Deadly Women. That show creeps me out and I can’t stop watching.

  • Merp

    Fashion Police (9:00) – E!
    0.508 million viewers, #11; 0.221 million adults 18-49 (0.2 rating), #11

    Strike Back (10:00) – Cinemax
    0.364 million viewers, #12; 0.176 million adults 18-49 (0.1 rating), #12

    E! thought it was going to have Fashion Police acquire more viewers by moving it to 9PM but that plan obviously failed. I wonder how Hello Ross will do at 10. Also, thumbs up for the Season 10 premiere episodes of Say Yes to the Dress!

  • redlock

    The White Queen???

  • John A

    Is that normal ratings for Strike Back? Oh and where are Friday Broadcast Finals?

  • redlock

    @John A:
    Strike Back’s average last season was 0,312 mio. viewers. So last Friday’s rating was above average.

  • shogun

    Thanks Merp.

  • TimsDale4ever

    NAN comedy repeats continually amaze me at their performance.

  • steve

    Continuum had their first truly GREAT episode last week. Finally all the plot threads came together into one really great scifi story. Could this show be like many scifi series that came before (Farscape, several Trek series), that finally found their groove late in the second season? I hope so, because it’s been years since there’s really been a great scifi series on television.

  • Chris A

    white queen airs on sat so no one will have to watch it and starz can avoid cable ratings

    The White Queen (9:00) – Starz
    0.801 million viewers, #11; 0.365 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #6
