Despite having Tony Award winning actress Lena Hall as a guest voice last Saturday, the lack of marketing from Discovery Family did not help the viewership which was an estimated 285,000 for “The Mane Attraction.” That is the second-lowest mark this season after “Amending Fences” (283K) on July 4th. The Season Five average now stands at 410,375 per episode.

The two-part Season Five Finale, “The Cutie Re-Mark” airs this coming Saturday at 11am ET/10am CT on Discovery Family. (The MLP Facebook page is incorrect on the time.)

For Littlest Pet Shop, it might have been “Senior Day,” but some took the weekend off. The aforementioned episode drew an estimated 149,000 last Saturday on Discovery Family. Next up is “Littlest Pet Shop of Horrors” next Saturday atnoon ET/11am CT on Discovery Family.

Gravity Falls may be going away, but not without breaking some more records on Disney XD. “Weirdmageddon, Part 2:  Escape from Reality” drew an estimate 1.67 million viewers on Monday night on Disney XD  That is a record for an animated series on the channel for a first-run episode. Including two episodes that first aired on Disney Channel, the Season Two average now stands at 1.264 million per episode after 20 episodes.

The one-hour series finale is expected to air early in 2016.
