Naruto Keeps #1 Spot on Toonami in Week 5

Posted on January 5, 2013

In it’s fifth week, Naruto keeps the #1 spot for viewership on North America’s Toonami block on Cartoon Network! Over 1 million viewers watched the uncut, English dubbed episode titled “You Failed! Kakashi’s Final Decision” on December 30th. Specifically, 1,124,000! That’s slightly lower than last weeks 1,144,000 when it was also the most watched show, but great numbers nonetheless! In week 3 961,000 viewers watched Naruto, in week 2 908,000 tuned in, and in the first week of Naruto’s return to Toonami, 925,000 enjoyed the show.

Check out the viewership for all of Toonami’s shows for the night. The time listed is the time the show aired in the Eastern and Pacific timezones. It’s worth noting that in their marketing, Toonami mentions Naruto airs on Saturday night (December 29th in this case), but in actuality the air day is Sunday (December 30th in this case). As you already may know, the new calendar day begins at 12:00 AM (midnight).
