Do we have any word on how Super's been performing on its weekday showings? The slot's somewhat prestigious what with it usually airing the leftovers of the top hierarchy of Fox's Animation Domination, so I'm rather interested to see if Super's performance justifies the slot well enough to see the performances be on-going for the future.
By jove, I've got nothing important to say!

A couple of quick notations:
[spoiler]
  • Super's the 3rd highest rated scripted original of the night, with A&E's LIVE PD taking the 1st and 2nd spots. In terms of overall cable originals, Super's in 7th place due to NASCAR and the aforementioned Live PD.
  • Relativity to other Toonami shows, Super's still the highest rated show on the block, despite My Hero Academia taking the programming lead (not the timeslot) from Super.
  • According to Showbuzzdaily, Super's 18-49 rating is down 0.06 to 0.32 from last week's rating. Viewership also went down by about 18k.

Reddit user radiospringy managed to round-up the last two weeks of Super's weekly ratings. According to the discussion, it shared Nickelodeon's Double Dare reboot's 18-49 rating (0.19), and that show's usually ranked around 17th place in terms of cable premieres.

The Saturday Premieres are consistently the highest rated thing in the night across all channels so THOSE are good, even if they only score 750k now. Now the RERUNS, those are harder to tell.

And despite slightly waning viewership, Super is still the clear king of Toonami. I bet Cartoon Network is REALLY hoping for Super to continue after the Broly film.

Yeah. Especially here in Latin America and Brazil where they almost beat Game Of Thrones in ratings!

No, actually. My Hero Academia's ratings are stable and matching around with last week's ratings. It's also in 12th place in terms of scripted originals, or in 2nd place relative to other Toonami shows on the night. For an anime on a niche block like Toonami, I'll say that the show's popular enough!

For now, the only disappointing part about HeroAca's ratings is the lack of a boost from being moved up to leading the block (It's the first week, so we can cut it some slack). Super's audience grew from HeroAca's, which is not too rare on television, but something to keep in mind.

Super's numbers will probably jump up this week as the universe survival arc will be starting.

Super will probably be back in April so they have nothing to worry about.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

MHA, a series that not even classic DB or Z can hold a candle to.

I watched MHA. I personally find it just okay. Some of the story arcs are just boring.

So it's good, but nothing amazing.

To be fair, Season 2 is much better. Season 1 is almost like a beta.

What the hell is happening to the ratings not breaking 1 million is terrible. Is TV really phasing out this badly or is Toonami once again in trouble???

Toonami's doing relatively fine (and you'll quickly see why). The first half of the block, especially Super, is notable for getting spots in the Top 5-10 in terms of age 18-49 rating and viewership.

Anyways, a major schedule shake-up is underway for Toonami on September 29th. The block is starting earlier around 9pm, which means it'll be running for 7 hours.
  • 9:00 PM - Dragon Ball Z Kai
  • 9:30 PM - My Hero Academia
  • 10:00 PM - Naruto Shippuden
  • 10:30 PM - Boruto
  • 11:00 PM - Dragon Ball Super
  • 11:30 PM - FLCL Alternative
  • 12:00 AM - Attack on Titan
  • 12:30 AM - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable
  • 1:00 AM - Black Clover

  • 2:00 AM - One-Punch Man
  • 2:30 AM - Lupin the 3rd
  • 3:00 AM - Cowboy Bebop
