“Legend of Korra” Book 2 Getting Off to Low Start
The highly anticipated return of The Legend of Korra is off to a very soft start in its first two weeks back. Both episodes have scored series lows, with the hour-long return on September 13 scoring 2.600 million total viewers. This past Friday’s new episode was even lower – with 2.191 million.
The series’ first book aired from April to June 2012 and scored between 4.548 million for its highest during the series premiere and 2.976 million at its lowest in early June. Book one aired on Saturday mornings at 11am, while book two has relocated to Friday nights at 7pm.
Korra isn’t alone. Nick’s other series are struggling to reach decent ratings. Last week’s new Sam & Cat scored 2.331 million viewers and newer series The Haunted Hathaways dropped to 1.896 million. Even Sanjay and Craig returned from a break to 2.378 million viewers on September 14. Korra was the 7th most watched program for the week ending September 15 on Nick – behind six SpongeBob repeats. September 21 and 22 ratings haven’t been released yet, but with Nick’s Worldwide Day of Play on Saturday, they are sure to be down even more than normal.
