Healthy ratings for Space Dandy at top of Toonami charts


The dandiest man in space outperforms expectations.

How dandy! It looks like Space Dandy is doing pretty well in the ratings game! For the third week in a row Dandy has topped Toonami's ratings charts and even outperformed several other late-night TV shows. While it's not, you know, beating out SNL or something crazy, it is topping things like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report (but it's January and they typically have low ratings this time of year). 

(in total viewers)

11:30PM Space Dandy 1.0 HH, 1.411 million
12:00AM Bleach 0.9 HH, 1.303 million
12:30AM Naruto: Shippuden 0.8 HH, 1.167 million
1:00AM One Piece 0.6 HH, 892,000
1:30AM Soul Eater 0.6 HH, 844,000
2:00AM Sword Art Online 0.6 HH, 752,000
2:30AM Fooly Cooly 0.5 HH, 618,000
3:00AM Naruto 0.5 HH, 561,000
3:30AM Fullmetal: Brotherhood 0.4 HH, 512,000
4:00AM Ghost in the Shell 0.3 HH, 424,000
4:30AM IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix 0.3 HH, 405,000
5:00AM Star Wars: Clone Wars 0.4 HH, 533,000
5:30AM Inuyasha 0.3 HH, 461,000

What cool little success though! I'm glad that Toonami and FUNimation's experiment is paying off. How many of you have been contributing and watching Space Dandy live each Saturday?
