3.9 Million Watch TMNT Premiere Episodes; Series Renewed for 2nd Season

TV by the Numbers has reported that approximately 3.9 million people watched the premiere episodes of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series this past Saturday, September 29. Of those 3.9 million, 2.1 million were in the important demographic of kids ages 2-11, and 837,000 of them were boys ages 6-11.

While we've known since Toy Fair that Nickelodeon is committed to making new episodes of the series through at least 2015, and production of the second season is already underway, TV by the Numbers also reports confirmation that Nickelodeon has green lit 26 episodes for season two.

Saturday's episodes garnered largely positive reviews, and the viewing numbers made it the number one kids' program on basic cable. New episodes will continue to air on Saturday mornings at 11am EST/10am CST.


  1. is it possible to know how many people watched the 2K3 premiere? Cheers!!

  2. Ive been a TMNT fan from the minute i was born, from the original 80's cartoon till now. The 2k3 series to me was not good... I didnt like the story nor the way they were drawn up. Highly disapointed. BUT this TMNT stole my heart right from the start, the animation, the story thus far the voices, the action and comedy, its perfect!! I love it & glad to hear they are in for a 2nd season and hopefully more!
