    * The Loud House: Great
    * The Adventures of Kid Danger: Decent
    * Hunter Street: Bad
    * Lip Sync Battle Shorties: Bad
    * Andi Mack: Bad
    * Stuck in the Middle: Bad

    :(

      Based on what? You may need to rethink these somewhat. Take a look at the Female 12 – 34 ratings. There is the audience for Andi Mack and Stuck in the Middle. Boys just aren’t as interested. Stuck in the Middle probably suffers from being a bit too silly and/or ridiculous for larger, even older, audiences. Both are also Disney shows and Disney is not a commercial network, so they do not have advertisers to worry about, just their own criteria of success..

      I’ve no idea what Hunter Street is, but I would go with disappointing rather than bad. You may be right about Lip Sync. Then again, all finished in the top 40 of 150 shows.

    Do you have Road Trip Masters at 5 AM (it was technically early Saturday) on Discovery Channel?
