    Way to go as always, Nickelodeon!


  2. Douglas from Brazil

    SNL numbers?


  3. Destiny

    That’s interesting for The Son.

    Premiere: 1.92 million, 0.19 18-49.
    Episode 3: 1.55 million, 0.17 18-49

    It lost some aged viewers but remained stable in the 18-49.


  4. Charlie Fisher

    Do you have the SundanceTV ratings for The Son, by any chance? :)


  5. Martin

    Do you have Beyblade Burst and Yo-Kai Watch on Disney XD and Sonic Boom on Boomerang?
