Ratings Corner – MLP “Filli Vanilli” and LPS “Shanghai Hi-Jinks”

It turns out many found that Fluttershy had the music. “Filli Vanilli” drew 584,000 viewers making it the 4th most-watched episode in the series. When you throw the viewership from Sunday’s encore (305,000 and 6th place), the combined viewership is 3rd-best this season behind the season premiere (1.05 M median for both parts) and “Rarity Takes Manehattan” (910,000).

Should another episode draw more than 505,000 viewers, then “The Crystal Empire” would end up being the sole non-Season Four episode in the top ten all-time most viewed episodes.

MLP occupied half of the top 20 this week.
