The Sonic Boom games on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U have stirred up all mixed opinions from Sonic fans, but the TV show that the games are based on appears to be doing quite well. Data provided by TV By The Numbers shows that the cartoon is holding its own against the competition and sits at the number one spot on Saturday mornings. This in turn should help boost the game’s sales.
Saturday Morning saw year-to-year gains among all targeted demos, ranging from +9% to +17%. Sonic Boom (7a) and Pokemon the Series XY (8a) premieres ranked #1 in their respective time periods among boys 6-11/9-14. Premieres of both series were up across all targeted demos vs. the same time period year ago, ranging from +46% to +73%.
