PR On-Air Statistics

   Here's a page for all the numbers geeks out there. Thanks to the invaluable information contained in the pages of John Green's GrnRngr.com Web site (if you haven't checked it out recently, it's now even more awesome than you remember), Scott Oldeman's meticulous research on all things Fox Kids, the initial WOFK reports of one Jesse Lee Herndon (a k a SirStack) and records I've kept since PR's debut on ABC Family, I have some stats of PR's history on U.S. television. The counts include all 30-minute time slots, including specials. (Movies not included - but specials about movies are [go figure] ). Hope something here strikes your fancy.

   And, for the record, I DO NOT count the reversioned episodes of MMPR that were shown on ABC Kids in 2010 as a separate season and they don't add to the episode total which was 897 at the conclusion of the first season of Beast Morphers in 2019. They're just a "redheaded stepchild" extension of the overall MMPR count.

   60-minute specials count as one episode (because it's only been shown as a single episode on Nickelodeon in the U.S., and domestic airings is what I go by) but two time slots in counts below. Also, as I go through my UPRS work, I'll find airings of other 'specials' (bloopers, behind-the-scenes, etc.) that WILL count as a time slot but NOT as an episode, which will widen the gap between the numbers. That's why the counts you find here will probably be different than John's or Scott's or anyone else's. We all have to decide on our own criteria for how to count things.

   And, in regards to the 75-minute extended PRSM finale, I'm making things simple on myself and counting that as two time slots and two episodes. It's extra footage from both "The Wrath" and "Legendary Battle," two episodes that already existed. I AM NOT going into fractions of slots/eps!

TIME SLOT PACE FOR 2020
PROJECTED TOTAL FOR 2020

   The 'time slot pace' is simply the daily average multiplied by 365 (or, in leap years, 366). 'Projected total' reflects what the total would be on Dec. 31 if they continue with the current general schedule. (The general schedule is subject to frequent changes -- and there could be bonus slots added to the schedule.) As of the date shown above, the general schedule has 21 time slots in a week, which is an average of exactly 3 per day.
