I’m not entirely sure what the implications are of these ratings, but the Disney Channel press release certainly makes them sound celebratory:
“Wander Over Yonder” (Fri., 9:00 – 9:15p.m.) rose to 6-week highs, delivering its #3 regular telecast on record in Total Viewers (2.77 million), Kids 2-11 (1.73 million/4.4 rating), Kids 6-11 (1.30 million/5.5 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (1.05 million/4.3 rating).
This is the week of October 28 to November 3, so going back six weeks brings us to to the week of “The Fugitives.” The ratings we have of “The Fugitives” were a little sparse, but the ratings we do have are higher than these. So does this mean that Wander just emerged from a little dell; was “The Troll” just exceptionally popular; did the first episodes still profit more from the premiere advertisement; or are these fluctuations so small and random that we can’t meaningfully read anything into them?
