Next Monday marks the beginning of the second season of Wander, as well as a new era in Gravity Falls. Premieres of new episodes for both shows air on August 3rd and here’s Disney XD’s special promo commemorating the event, after the Break.


Weird Al continues his circuit of children’s cartoon appearances with the new episode of Gravity Falls on Monday (August 3rd). Check out the promo after the break.

Star vs. the Forces of Evil returned after a four-week break and the results are somewhere in the middle. The pair of “Blood Moon Ball” and “Fortune Cookies” drew an estimated 665,000 viewers on Disney XD on Monday night. That is the only the second time in the last five airings that the show has broken 600,000. The average for Disney XD is now 686,857 per episode for the last seven episodes.

Next Monday at 8:30pm ET/7:30pm CT, it’s another pair of episodes in “Freeze Day” and “Royal Pain.” Also of note is the first 22-minute episode of the series on August 10th when we visit “St. Olga’s Reform School for Wayward Princesses.”

As the dust settles on Steven Bomb #3, the Crewniverse and Ms. Sugar have announced that new episodes will begin again August 6th.  Being that this is a Thursday when new weekly episodes premiere, its a safe bet that the show will return to singular weekly episodes.  I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of the bombs though.

Currently only the next three episodes are known, and its unknown what order they will play in.

“Super Watermelon Island” – Steven finds the watermelon Stevens he created in the episode “Watermelon Steven”

“Gem Drill” – Steven travels underground.

“Barn Mates” – Steven aids a pair of friends in getting along at a barn.

So for now, we wait.

Another Steven Bomb has come and gone, and now it’s time to look at the numbers from Monday to Friday. It started with “Cry for Help” and an estimated viewership of 1.714 million viewers on Cartoon Network. It was a bit less than Gravity Falls’ 1.911 million later that night, though the shows were even in the P18-49 demo at 0.36.

On Tuesday“Keystone Motel” drew slight higher at 1.734 million viewers. The next night, “Onion Friend” drew 1.827 million viewers and placed 8th among original cable programming in the P18-49 demo. Thursday night saw “Historical Friction” draw the highest numbers of the week at 1.877 million viewers. Finally on Friday, “Friend Ship” drew the lowest numbers for the week at 1.647 million viewers, but placed 6th among top 100 original cable programming on that night given the light viewership on Friday nights.

For the week, Steven Bomb 3 averaged 1.76 million viewers per episode. This represents a 4.6% decline from last month’s Steven Bomb (1.846M average). After 18 episodes in Season Two, Steven Universe is averaging 1.723 million viewers an episode.
