    Another series low for Henry Danger. I wanna cry. Power Rangers and Knight Squad were also terrible. However, while I don’t watch it, Rise of the TMNT did well for these times.


    • Chris

      Power Rangers is running ppl off bc the episodes are mediocre every week imo. These recent episodes are MegaForce level of laziness.


  2. Tenter

    What are Nicktoons ratings for Yu-Gi-Oh at 9am please?


  3. Andrew

    Ratings for “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” on Discovery Family at 11:30a.m. EST?


  4. Littlest Pet Shop A World Of Our Own at 12:00PM & 12:30PM on Discovery Family?


  5. Ryan

    Can I have the season premiere of ‘Versailles’ (Ovation, 10pm) and ‘Inside Versailles’ (Ovation, 11pm)? Thanks!


  6. ChrisM

    I wonder why Big Hero 6 does poorly for Disney. It’s actually a decent, well animated, series and should be doing as well as the other new ‘toons on.


  7. Martin

    Do you have Beyblade Burst at 8 AM, Yo-Kai Watch at 8:30 AM and Pokemon the Series: Sun & Moon at 9 AM on Disney XD?
