Let’s start with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The trip to the Pie Farm was a highly-watched one for this half of the season at least. “Hearthbreakers” drew an estimated 382,000 viewers on Discovery Family last Saturday That is the highest viewership mark since “Canterlot Botique” back on September 12th. It is an increase of 16.5% from last week’s episode. The Season Five average now stands at 412,100. Next up is “Scare Master” on Saturday at 11:30am ET/10:30am CT (unless you were lucky enough to pounce on iTunes’s error back in September).
Gravity Falls was beginning “Weirdmaggeon” (we are not using the cipher code for that episode). Part 1 drew 1.408 million on Disney XD last night That is the highest viewership mark for this show since “A Tale of Two Stans” back on July 13th and the third-highest for a first-run episode on Disney XD. The Season Two average now stands at 1.245 million per episode which does include two episodes that first ran on Disney Channel. It is unknown at the time of press when Part 2 will air.
