    Strike Back on cinemax numbers, please.

    Ouch….. Honestly, with all the advertisement they did fo DC Super Hero Girls, I expected AT LEAST the 50% more. 544k is a record low for a series premiere on CN. Justice League Action did the double ratings in its series premiere years ago and that series was canned after one measy season…. not looking good for Faust’s new show, not looking good at all… such a shame since I LOVED the premiere.


    • Robert

      Mega Man: Fully Charged’s premiere was the lowest rated series premiere on CN with only 256,000 views. Transformers: Cyberverse’s (360,000 views) and Bakugan: Battle Planet’s (398,000 views) premiere also performed worse than DC Super Hero Girls.


      • Red

        Still, it’s not much high for a show premiering anyway, especially when all the other more recent CN shows got between the 800k-1m ratings during their premieres. Besides Mega Man Fully Charged was doomed before starting (both because it was evident it was a bad show and because it got a really bad timeslot for the airings) so I didn’t count it on purpouse. Transformers Cyberverse instead it’s curious as the premiere got bad ratings but improved straight afterward in the next ep (which did 510k). Maybe ratings could improve with the next eps of the series. The timeslot is quite conventional, so there might be still hope…. hopefully. I HIGHLY doubt this show is gonna do so much well, but I hope it does enough to get a S2 at the very least.


        • ChrisM

          The target audience of children is what matters. We do not get those numbers in the chart and the 12-34 numbers are not listed for anything below the first fifty shows. It is also a show aimed at young girls and it is possible the overall number includes many of them or older ones.


          • Red

            Still, I don’t think the show will have long time. The shorts on the official YT channel are not doing that good either. The first few ones surpassed the million, but the most recent ones are struggling to even react the 100k-200k views. And that means something…. Don’t forget what’s happened to Justice League Action: that show had decent ratings and despite that it got canned after one single season. Knowing CN’s policies chances of this show ending the same way are high all things considered….

    Where can I find syndicated daytime show numbers?
