Nice, Animated is probably the best show on CN now.

Great news. Just too bad that Hasbro can't get their toys out fast enough.

Which is another reason I don’t think the animated toys will do well, or at least as well. I remember Gundam wing did great in ratings but Bandai took forever to get the toys out and it did affect sells if I recall.

All right! This show connects with kids. Naysayers concerning the style will just have to get over it, since this show will be sticking around. Animated, Beast Wars, and G1 now count as the strongest television put forth by the franchise. I hope TF:A keeps the quality high. Kids will be clamoring for those toys. Take note, Hasbro!

Probably becuase nothing else is on. Eon Kid, Dinosaur King, Tak and the Power of Juju? That's the competition.

I've allways had faith in the show, as it works from an animator's point of view, and focuses on things that dubs (Realistic and influential in my art style they may be) did not, like characterisation (Exceptions being Cyclonus, Demolisher, Ransack & Crumplezone, Thunderblast. My favourite Red Alert's not even on there, though I've never heard of the token British doctor as a character arcitype), and expressions (Cybertron is guilty of such... noticing a pattern?). And the people complained that is was kiddy? Well, that's a flawed logic, it is for kids, and kids can't seem to get enough of it.

I watched it too, but that don't mean I liked it.

Hell Harry Potter beat TFs in the box office, but hell once the DVD battle came around, who beat who after both products where actualy seen...

Now if they hurry up and start retooling this show, I have no doubt they could keep these ratings up and then some.

yeah, but these are the ratings for the fourth episode.
If it were for "Transform and Roll Out" your argument would have a stronger standing.

I happen to be part of the Neilson ratings program.

Too bad I'm in the 16-28 range( i think that's it), so I probably don't effect it that much.

Who would be his running mate?
I think some likely candidates are Prowl,Jazz, Ultra Magnus and Ironhide.

Maybe Huffer.

If it gets people who were previously not interested in Transformers to be interested in Transformers, I'm all for it. Growing numbers of Transformers fans can't be a bad thing!
