Toonami Ratings Improve During Week 2


Toonami Ratings Improve During Week 2

The recently revived Toonami programming block on Cartoon Network had decent ratings on its first week, according to former Toonami producer and current VP of strategic marketing and promotions Jason DeMarco. The ratings were good enough to justify continuation, but it didn’t exactly break new grounds. Fortunately for people like us, who want to the programming block to stay a little longer, the numbers have improved over the second week, as the premiere episodes of Bleach, Casshern Sins, Deadman Wonderland, managed to pull above average numbers.

“We’re doing well! I’m encouraged,” said DeMarco in a recent tweet.

Here’s the ratings breakdown between weeks one and two:

Week 1:

Bleach: 1,060,000 (12 AM) and 580,000 (3 AM)
Deadman Wonderland: 860,000 (12:30 AM) and 557,000 (3:30 AM)

Cowboy Bebop: 669,000 (2:30 AM) and 419,000 (5:30 AM)
