    My Analysis:
    * The Loud House: Great
    * The Adventures of Kid Danger: Good
    * Hunter Street: Bad
    * Lip Sync Battle Shorties: Bad
    * Andi Mack: Bad-Decent
    * Stuck in the Middle: Bad
    * K.C. Undercover: Bad-Decent


    • Kenneth

      I’m not sure you can make an analysis for kids programs base on this ratings, because they do not reflect the target audience.

    Strike Back on Cinemax?
