“Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3” Episode Guide

421 – “Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3”

Written by Amy Keating Rogers
“All Rainbow Dash really wants is to become a member of the Wonderbolts Reserves — an exclusive group of Pegasus ponies. In order to make the grade, though, she’ll have to pass a tricky entrance exam — which may end up being tougher than she thought. (Even Twilight’s foolproof study methods aren’t doing the trick; who woulda thunk?) Can Rainbow pull herself together and ace the toughest test she’s ever taken?”

Synopses for April’s Steven Universe Episodes


Steven Universe will return the air waves in one week, and after last week’s four new episode titles, we now have the synopsis.  It also seems that “Steven and the Sword Fighter” was a title error, as the episode is now listed as “Steven the Sword Fighter”.  Also a reminder to our readers that Steven Universe will be moving to Wednesday nights at 7pm est.  Now for your really short synopses.


April’s Steven Universe Episode Synopses

SUN 116 – Steven the Sword Fighter: Pearl tries to teach Steven the art of sword-fighting using a holographic version of himself.

SUN 117 – Coach Steven: After seeing Garnet and Amethyst fuse together into the powerful Sugilite – Steven becomes determined to get super strong.

SUN 118 – Lion 2: The Movie: Steven and Connie try to ride Lion to the movie theatre but Lion has other ideas.

SUN 119 – Beach Party:After a battle damages Fish Stew Pizza, Steven throws a cookout at the Temple to mend the relationship between Pizza family and the Crystal Gems.


Ratings Report: SUN 113 – Onion Trade


It’s back-to-back gains in viewership for Steven Universe. “Onion Trade” drew 1.79 million viewers on St. Patrick’s Day placing 5th on the Cartoon Network charts. Both viewership and place are 3rd best this season. Steven benefited greatly from its lead-ins of Adventure Time and Regular Show which went 1-2 for CN.

After a short break, which we’re in now, Steven will return on April 9th and to Wednesday nights and will not have the benefit of following CN’s 1-2 punch. We shall see what happens.

Steven Universe Season 1:
  • Episodes as of March 17th: 13
  • High:  1,893,000 (“Giant Woman”, 2/24/14)
  • Low:  1,005,000 (“Arcade Mania”, 2/17/14)
  • Average Viewership:  1,533,462
  • Highest Placing:  1st (“Giant Woman”, 2/24/14)

Four News Episodes for April



While many of the television guides have not reached far enough into the future to give us synopsis, whoever keeps the Wikipedia episode page for Steven Universe up to date is definitely on the ball, which has revealed four new episodes slated for the month of April.

  • Steven and the Sword Fighter (04/09/2014)
  • Coach Steven (04/16/2014)
  • Lion 2: The Movie (04/23/2014)
  • Beach Party (04/30/2014)

Along with the new episodes though comes change.  Steven Universe will now premiere episodes on Wednesday night.  This is probably due to some of the changes happening at Cartoon Network, namely the expansion of their sister channel Adult Swim which will begin airing at 8pm est nightly instead of 9pm.  While I wish there was some new shows on [AS], unfortunately that extra hour is going to be filled with the Cleveland Show.

A more interesting note to the move is the fact that the other established CN shows (Adventure Time & Regular Show) will continue to premiere their episodes on Mondays.  Adventure Time has just recently wrapped up Season 5 on March 17th, though Season 6 will begin on April 21st with a double episode.  Uncle Grandpa, the other new comer to the CN family is airing its season finale on April 1st (Tuesday) with “Prank Wars”.  Thus it seems our fair show will walk solo.  We’ll see how the ratings fair without the boost of AT & RS beforehand.

And while this last chunk of news isn’t related to Steven Universe, it is related to Cartoon Network and any dedicate fan of the channel.  It was announced earlier in the month that VP of Turner Animation and COO of Cartoon Network Stu Snyder would step down from his position.  This is the guy who was responsible for the attempted shift on CN from animated shows to live action shows.  He more or less stepped down to the fact that all his green lighted live action shows failed miserably, while the few new animated shows he allowed (Adventure Time & Regular Show) became wildly successful in comparison.
