    MECH-X4 at 7:00 AM on Disney XD? Thank you very much!


    • Mitch Salem

      0.04/177K. Our understanding is that this is a daily show but with only a 2-week run, and we’ll continue responding to requests on that basis, but if it turns out to extend beyond that, we’ll stop reporting on it other than premieres and finales.


      • Amaury

        Thanks, Mitch!

        More or less, yeah. There aren’t new episodes on Fridays, actually, if that helps, so it’s only a Monday through Thursday run. The season one finale is on May 1, so starting from April 17, that comes out to one week and two days of new episodes.

        In any case, thank you very much! It’s appreciated as always! :)


  2. Martin

    Do you have Pig Goat Banana Cricket at 9 pm on Nicktoons?
