Let’s start with last Monday’s Star vs. the Forces of Evil as it was a slight drop from the previous week. The pairing of “Mr. Candle Cares” and “Red Belt” drew an estimated 560,000 viewers on Disney XD last Monday. We will have the numbers for “Star on Wheels” and “Fetch” next Monday along with the second week of Steven Universe episodes.

The return of Steven last Monday was well-received. On Monday, the duo of “Steven Floats” and “Drop Beat Dad” drew an estimated 1.551 million viewers on Cartoon Network. Tuesday, “Mr. Greg” drew 1.549 million viewers. There was a bit of a drop for “Too Short to Ride” on Wednesday as 1.410 million viewed that episode. There was an uptick on Thursday for “The New Lars” to the sound of 1.532 million. But Fridaysaw the low of the week with “Beach City Drift” at 1.293 million viewers. The average for the week was 1.481 million viewers. That is off from the 1.542 million average for the first five episodes of Season Three.

Ratings information for this report comes courtesy of Mitch Metcalf of Showbuzz Daily as measured by Nielsen Media Research.




We love inviting guest who work on our favorite show and all the media around it, but as we all know, this community is so much bigger than just show staff. We have four amazing community guests joining us this year.

PixelKitties has been one of the most popular artists in the fandom since the very first season of Friendship is Magic. With over a million views on DeviantArt, she’s created OCs for show staff and autograph signs for countless conventions. When she’s not drawing ponies, you can find her on Twitter talking about tacos and beer. As fans of combining beer, tacos, and ponies, we’re very excited to welcome her back!

Silver Quill is one of the most respected members of the pony analyst community. The self-described “brony fandom’s sole known reviewing hippogryph”, Silver Quill has over 100,000 subscribers watching funny and thoughtful analyses and deconstructions of pony episodes, movies, and more on YouTube. He’ll be bringing his trademark wit and insight back to Dallas for Nightmare Nights again this year!

LeekFish is an artist who has been drawing tiny horses since 2013. You’ve seen her work headlining conventions, splashed all over Twitter, and in just about every con’s vendor hall and charity auction. Not limited to drawing ponies, her art spans media like anime and video games, along with an original comic book and webcomic series named Envelove. With this being her fourth trip to Texas, we’re thrilled to have her as a community guest in 2016!

Foal Papers, scholar and noted British person, will be returning to Nightmare Nights for his fourth time! Foal will be leading our panels once again, discussing voice acting in the morning, writing in the afternoon, and scotch in the evening. Whether in his role as our Master of Ceremonies, or acting as M. A. Larson’s whipping boy, we’re very glad to have him back!

The con is getting closer and closer every week! Make sure to purchase your badge to Nightmare Nights on our homepage, as prices will be going up at the door. We’re back at the Crowne Plaza Addison for our fourth year, so reserve your room at our discounted room rate. We’re also accepting volunteers to help with all kinds of stuff at the con, in exchange for a free badge and a feeling of satisfaction from helping your fellow pony fans enjoy the convention!

Be sure to stay tuned here on our website, and on our TwitterFacebook, and Tumblr pages for more updates on guests, vendors, schedule, and more!
