May 11, 2014, 1:00 pm EDTSteven UniverseComments Off on Ratings Report: Steven U – Beach Party
Not quite as many people saw “Beach Party” as did “Lion 2: The Movie,” but it’s around average for the show so far. It did improve two places from last week on the Cartoon Network placing 11th. It was the 2nd most-watched CN show on Wednesdaynight behind Teen Titans Go!. The top six spots were occupied by programming on Monday night with Clearance taking top spot.
Sadly though that appears to be the only new episode for the month of May. Coach Steven is now set to air sometime in June, along with a new episode title – Joking Victim. No synopsis yet.
In other related news, the Steven Universe – WeLoveFine Design Contest has kicked off its “rating” portion of the contest.
664 designs were submitted to WLF, and currently the general public will rate each shirt. There are 20 days left for rating. Then at the end three guest judges (Rebecca Sugar, Ian Jones-Quartey, & Steven Sugar) will pick the winners.
Since someone on YouTube already does “Lightning Round” reviews from time to time, and I can’t do YouTube apart from videos of big cats at zoos, I’ll take from the bonus round of a short-lived game show from the 1980s (“All-Star Blitz”) and do a “Blitz Bonanza” of reviews for MLP Season Four. The rules are as follows:
Each episode is scored on a scale of 1-10 apart from the two-part “Princess Twilight Sparkle” which will be scored on a scale of 1-20. These are my opinions and do not necessarily reflect those of Derpy News. Each review will be a single paragraph in length and go six episodes at a time* since we need to prepare for “Twilight’s Kingdom” next Saturday. With all of that in mind, let’s begin!
* Due to time constraints (and some laziness) we present StatManDan’s reviews as one ultra mega chicken article.

As we come closer to the season finale this Saturday, an epic flood of spoiler material is slowly leaking onto the internet. This time we have a 30+ second clip via the official MLP Facebook page. For the moment you’ll have to head on over to the site to watch, check back later for YouTube version.
May 3, 2014, 11:12 pm EDTSteven UniverseComments Off on Ratings Corner: Steven Universe – Lion 2: The Movie
The return of Lion as part of the story drew a few more viewers than his original appearance. “Lion 2: The Movie” drew 1.565 million viewers and placed 13th on the Cartoon Network chart. It is a 42.5% improvement from two weeks ago when Steven Universe began on Wednesday nights. One does have to wonder how it would have done on Monday after Adventure Time cracked the 3 million mark (3.321M to be exact) and Regular Show following up with 2.67M. You can ask Clearance which drew 2.372 million on April 21st.
