Three More Adventures For Spectacular Spider-Man

30 mai 2008 Non Par Comic Box

[ENGLISH] Just three original episodes remain for the first season of « The Spectacular Spider-Man » … starting this Saturday, May 31 with the blockbuster gathering of The Sinister Six in an all-new episode entitled « Group Therapy. » Ratings for the series have continued to build over its first 10 episodes as « The Spectacular Spider-Man » has been posting tremendous numbers — particularly over the past four weeks, oftentimes doubling the competition in virtually all key demographics during both the 10 a.m. original episode time slot, and the 9:30 a.m. repeat slot.

Due to the Memorial Day holiday, Nielsen ratings for this past Saturday’s repeat episodes have been delayed. Howsever, for the May 17 original episode, « The Spectacular Spider-Man » scored remarkable numbers in all Saturday morning broadcast network kids demographics, including the key categories of Kids 2-11 (1.8/8, topping it’s nearest timeslot competition of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-Fast Forward’s 0.9/4), Boys 2-11 (2.7/11 to TMNT-FF’s 1.4/5), Kids 6-11 (1.6/8 to TMNT-FF’s 0.9/4) and Boys 6-11 (2.3/10 to TMNT-FF’s 1.4/6). For the week, the original 10 a.m. episode ranked No. 2 for the entire morning slate in broadcast network kids ratings for the Kids 2-11 demographic to the established « Tom and Jerry Tales, » and the 9:30 a.m. repeat Spider-Man episode placed fourth overall.

Despite premiering in March, nearly seven months into the season, original episodes of « The Spectacular Spider-Man » already rank No. 1 in its 10 a.m. timeslot for Saturday morning broadcast network ratings in the key Kids 2-11 demographic, and No. 3 against all Saturday morning broadcast network competition (behind CW 4Kids’ reigning season champs and runners-up « Tom and Jerry Tales » and « Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue! »). Riding those strong original episode ratings, the 9:30 a.m. repeat airings of « The Spectacular Spider-Man » — which only began six weeks ago — have already rocketed to the top spot among all Saturday morning broadcast competition in the Kids 2-11 demographic.
