    Do you have ratings for the new DuckTales at 7 AM on Disney XD and 3:30pm on Disney Channel??


    • Mitch Salem

      Sorry, we don’t provide ratings here for daily shows that are too low-rated to hit a day’s Top 150. In addition, the requests for low-rated children’s programming has gone beyond our ability to respond.

    Do you have Ducktales at 7:30 AM on Disney XD?
