    Henry Danger and The Adventures of Kid Danger did bad.


  2. Dylan

    Have Mysticons at 8am on Nicktoons? Thanks.


  3. Wonder where My Hero Academia is placed?


  4. Wonder where My Hero Academia is placed


  5. Martin

    Do you have Future-Worm! at 9:30 AM on Disney XD?


  6. Monzo

    Eurovision Song Contest at Logo 3:00 PM please!


  7. My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic at 11:30AM and Littlest Pet Shop A World Of Our Own at 12:00 Noon on Discovery Family?


  8. Fan

    *sees JJBA on the Top 10*

    OH MY GOD!

    Old Joseph aside, judging by JJBA’s position, I assume the rest of Toonami has a strong week in terms of ratings.


    • Fan

      Also, curse you Live PD for not allowing Dragon Ball Super to be the No.1 show on Saturday Night cable this week!


  9. Betty

    Patrick Melrose on Showtime?


  10. DeadZoom

    Black Clover stopped being considered a premiere 2 weeks ago for no reason, it has to be included in the updated section now


  11. D.

    MHA would have been tied for #8 from what I can see. And yes, it’s nice to see JoJo back in the Top 10–how long has it been??


  12. Jonathan

    These heavily requested shows don’t seem to be doing a whole lot for Toonami’s viewership.


  13. Chris

    Do you have numbers for Patrick Melrose on Showtime?


  14. Samuel

    How are the NWSL on Lifetime ratings going this season?
