Gravity Falls aired its 40th and final episode to a record high on Disney XD. “Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back the Falls” drew an estimated 2.467 million on Monday which is a record for a Disney XD series. It was a huge night for cartoons withSpongebob Squarepants drawing 2.927M at the same time with ALVINNN! and the Chipmunks drew 2.082M on Nickelodeon. The Amazing World of Gumball also drew north of 2 million (2.168M to be exact) at that hour on Cartoon Network.Sofia the First earlier in the day drew 2.918M on Disney Channel.
For Season Two, Gravity Falls averaged 1.324M per episode for 20 episodes. That includes the two episodes that premiered on Disney Channel (“Scary-Oke” and “Little Gift Shop of Horrors”). It’s still a far cry from the 3.352M average of Season One when all new episodes were on Disney Channel, but the show did well above average work for Disney XD. Now the question is which show will fill the void left by Gravity Falls.
