Ratings For The Premiere Of 'Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie' On Nickelodeon USA Released

The premiere of Nickelodeon brand-new Hey Arnold! television movie, Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie on Nick USA (simulcast on TeenNick and NickSplat) on Friday 24th November 2017 at 7:00pm ET/PT was watched by 1,630,000 viewers! Additionally, the movie was Nickelodeon's #1 telecast for that day, ranking #6 in total on the list of Top 150 Original Cable Telecasts for Friday 24th November 2017!

Admittedly, the ratings aren't super great, but considering that the movie aired during Thanksgiving, traditionally a time when families spend time together, and that the majority of Nickelodeon's audience is kids, who have most likely never heard of Hey Arnold! before, the ratings are very respectable. The ratings also do not take in account how many streamed the movie on Nick.com and the Nick App.

Below is the demo breakdown of the ratings for the debut of Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie:

Nickelodeon (first hour): 1,390,000 (0.40)
Nick at Nite (second hour): 1,146,000 (0.38)
Nicktoons: 234,000 (0.03)
TeenNick: 128,000 (0.04)

(Numbers in brackets = P18-49 ratings)

In recent interviews, Craig Bartlett, the creator of Nickelodeon's beloved '90s animated series, mentioned that if "The Jungle Movie" did well, it could lead to a sixth season. To me, the ratings seem very good, so hopefully we'll be seeing more Hey Arnold! on our screens soon.

Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie encores Saturday, Nov. 25, and Friday, Dec. 1, at 12:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on TeenNick's NickSplat. The movie is also available to watch online at Nick.com, on the Nick App, Nickelodeon on Demand, and on iTunes or Amazon.

In Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie, Arnold finally got answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents. Featuring a storyline picking up where the original TV series ended in 2004, Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie follows the kids on the field trip of a lifetime, where Arnold and his friends embark on a quest to achieve his dream of finding his missing parents.

Co-written and executive produced by the TV series’ original creator Craig Bartlett, Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie features original voice cast members Francesca Marie Smith (The Prince of Egypt) as Helga and Anndi McAfee (Tom and Jerry: The Movie) as Phoebe, alongside dynamic new voice talent Mason Vale Cotton (Mad Men) as Arnold and Benjamin “Lil’ P-Nut” Flores, Jr. (Game Shakers) as Gerald.

Lane Toran (original voice of Arnold) and Jamil Walker Smith (original voice of Gerald) are also amongst the returning cast members, lending their voices as Che and Paulo, two members of the boat crew in San Lorenzo. Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2) stars as resident villain, Lasombra.
