    So I was wondering when we're going to get ratings for Toonami, and will they be posted on Toonzone?

    I know for a lot of shows ratings usually come out around Tuesday night, but I could be wrong. Usually AS airs bumps that show their top rated shows sometime during the week.

    I don't think they've done that for a while.

    Ratings these days usually come out from Son of the Bronx on Fridays, but he missed last friday...

    Yeah I haven't seen those clips for awhile either where they show the ratings. Just assumed I've always missed them. I know zap2it usually has a lot of shows ratings on Tuesday, but I've never seen a AS show on them from my acknowledgement.

    Jason DeMarco just said on Twitter that they won't know until Tuesday or Wednesday. Hopefully he'll post the ratings on his Twitter when he finds out.

    We didn't get Toonami ratings yet but here's last Saturday's anime Top 3 in 18-34

    Bleach - 321K
    FMA:B - 288K
    Bleach (4 am) - 192K

    I think that was an especially bad week but they can pretty easily double that with Toonami so they might meet the expectation after all.

    With all of the promotion and all of the word of mouth through social media and internet forums, I'm going to say that the ratings will look something like this....

    Bleach - 1.5M
    Deadman Wonderland - 1.3M
    Casshern Sins - 1.1M
    FMA: Brotherhood - 800K
    Ghost in the Shell - 500K
    Cowboy Bebop - 400K

    Who knows, maybe the Toonami Faithful banded together even stronger and got shows like Bleach 2M viewers, it's a possibility since the social media front was exploding with fans promoting the block like nuts.

    Oh yeah. I'm pretty sure Toonami can double that in its sleep, maybe even triple that. Though I think that was a really bad week in general for Saturday.

    I have lower expectations than Manga4life but I think 18-34:

    Bleach - 1.2 million
    Deadman Wonderland - 1.1 million
    Casshern SINS - 900K
    Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - 650K
    Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GiG - 450K
    Cowboy Bebop - 500K (I expect it to do better than GITS)

    Given the near-complete lack of on-air promotion other than a few ads on Saturday night, I'd be (pleasantly) pretty surprised if Toonami's ratings looked like that, macattack.

    It's definitely going to be a building process. Once they earn enough $, then it'll probably be promoted on air more during the week. Toonami probably just drastically increased in ratings by word of mouth, so if they actually promoted it, it would probably go up even higher.

    I'd blame that on either the SNL season finale, or the fact that everyone who reguarly watched Adult Swim Saturdays couldn't be bothered because they knew Toonami was the week after.

    SNL is a likely culprit. It's literally the only other thing premiering then right? Season finale + departure of fan favorite cast members + popular guest host/musical guests is likely to trump Bleach filler and reruns of shows that were being pulled the next week anyway.

    Apparently, SNL got a below average, which is very odd...

    For some reason I think we're underestimating what we believe the ratings are going to look like. Heck, the April Fool's Toonami prank scored huge ratings and it wasn't even announced, literally word of mouth caused that, this time around we've had weeks to prepare for the launch of Toonami and I think the fruits of our labor will likely show in the numbers. I'm guessing we will know either today or tomorrow what the final numbers look like, I'm looking forward.

    Impossible. Because there was no SNL this weekend...

    This is talking about May 19th. The Saturday of the last ever Adult Swim Action broadcast. It did quite badly (see above), but so did SNL.
