  3. TheAGames10

    Do you know at all how many people watched the Spongebob rerun at 7 a.m or no?


    • Amaury

      I’m sure they do, but they don’t report reruns here, unless in those occasional cases where the network marks a premiere as a rerun by accident and people are able to confirm it.
