NOTE:  Nielsen is slowly grinding its way back up to date, and as of late Wednesday morning PT we don’t yet have Saturday network finals, nor do we have any Saturday cable ratings beyond the Top 150 (which means that for now we don’t have the full Adult Swim line-up, among others).  We’ll update as additional data comes in.

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  It was a fairly busy Saturday on cable.  ESPN was crammed with COLLEGE BASKETBALL Tournaments, and 5 games (topped by Duke vs. Notre Dame in the ACC at 1.09) plus 2 editions of COLLEGE GAMEDAY appeared in the Top 15.  To the extent we have Adult Swim numbers, they were Adult Swim was led by the return of SAMURAI JACK at 0.76. with the late-night DRAGON BALL Z down a tenth to 0.42 (the primetime episode was down 0.05 to 0.28), JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURES down 0.11 to 0.32, MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM down 0.15 to 0.26, and HUNTER X HUNTER down a tenth to 0.26/569K; note that it appears as though NARUTO , ONE PIECE and GHOST IN THE SHELL didn’t air, or they were lost in the Nielsen confusion.  The KIDS CHOICE AWARDS may have been simulcast on other Viacom networks, but for now we only have its was at 0.68 on Nickelodeon,  0.08 on Nicktoons, and 0.05/260K on TeenNick.

    Do you have the Simulcast ratings for Henry Danger at 7:30 pm on Nicktoons and TeenNick, Hunter Street at 9:34 pm on Nicktoons and TeenNick, and the Kids’ Choice Awards ratings on TeenNick please?


  2. Destiny

    Nielsens alive again, hurray!

    I don’t watch it, but those Samurai Jack numbers are pretty amazing. That’s the kind of return you want for a show like that.


  3. Amaury

    I knew Henry Danger would do excellent, being the lead-in to the KCAs! Disney Channel, take notes.


  4. Nick

    Where are the Saturday broadcast ratings? Tv by the number has them.any update on when numbers will be release?


  5. Daniel

    Only cable tv?


  6. KevinY

    Not bad for the WBC. Much younger skewing than most baseball games rate. Under 1 mil total viewers is kinda sad but it was a 3:30 west coast start so not bad.


  7. D.

    Samurai Jack did amazing, and DB Super at 8 PM did well too. The Toonami shows after midnight, on the other hand… ~_~


  8. ALChemist81

    Naruto Shippuden, One Piece, and Ghost in the Shell actually DID air; I was watching!! Guess they just got lost in the confusion…
