    Ratings for Beyblade Burst Evolution at 5 pm, Yokai Watch at 5:30 pm, and Pokemon the Series Sun and Moon Ultra Adventures at 6 pm on Disney XD?


  2. Destiny

    Superb for Better Call Saul. Yikes for Lodge 49. I think with the recent uptick for Preacher combined with Lodge 49 & Dietland bombing we should get a fourth season renewal.


    • Shan

      We don’t know how much an effect the full season of Lodge 49 being released on AMC’s on-demand service has. If the subscriber and viewing numbers are high enough then it would explain the weak premiere and why the normal AMC numbers will drop off.


      • ChrisM

        Lodge 49 was a fairly strange show. A slacker surfer dude who can’t surf anymore and hangs out in a doughnut shop who had lost his dad then his home because of that ends up at a lodge that he feels destined to have found and belong to…for a $2,000 fee that may, or may not be truthful. It was sort of a day in the life of this guy setting everything up. Except for him finding the lodge, nothing really happened. It seemed well acted, mildly interesting, but not compelling in any way you would really care. Next week’s preview seemed to indicate a mystery connected to the lodge, so I’ll see if it becomes interesting, but won’t be surprised if the ratings go down further.

    Do you have NFL LOL and NFL Flag FTW at 9 & 9:30 PM on Disney XD?


  4. Maru

    Mech-X4 at 10:00 PM on Disney XD? Thanks.


  5. Maru

    Yay! Andi Mack back up, Destiny!

    And lol, even with Bug Juice moved to 10:30 PM, it’s not doing any worse (or better).


  6. Jay

    Andi Mack should be averaging AT LEAST a 1.05 million. Not the 0.88 million it has been averaging so far. It’s also been beaten by earlier airing shows such as Raven’s Home and Bunk’d constant times (same week and same day). That’s quite a downcast.
