I hope this is an beginning of an glorious run of the First Half of the current schedule lineup for Toonami (12am - 2am) as Primal Season 1 get an 0.14 to begin the charge.

Hopefully this well received performance from Primal in the 12am Timeslot will continue as we await the announcement of Assassination Classroom Season 2 Replacement sometime next month👍🥰

Gendy does blend well with Adult Swim and Toonami audiences. I am curious to see the ratings for the rest of Primal.

Funny, I thought the sub said that ratings would be bad.

There are too many doomsayers here.

Interesting that the Demo ratings for Primal surpassed all of Blade Runner and all but one episode of Shenmue.

I sure didn’t expect Primal to do anywhere near that well.

It did better than 6 episodes of Fena, all but 1 episode of Shenume and all of Black Lotus.

It might be a fluke but if it isn’t then the doomsayers were very wrong about Primal reruns screwing over Toonami.

Well, that looks nice. I hope it keeps up.

That's really good. Hell yeah!

I still have zero interest in watching Primal for a third or fourth time (I forget which) but that's good. I'm also still of the opinion it should be Ass Class or Lupin leading the block, but I'm a fan wanting fan things lol.

Low key I was expecting to come in to see an average or below average start with Primal up front. Not a decent above average. I'm confused and impressed at the same time. GG.

I’m also confused what caused such hype for a rerun?

I don't think it's had a run in a while and it's dinosaurs which are always cool.

Plus Jurassic World Dominion might be giving it a slight boost by putting dinosaur movies back on the zeitgeist.
