Editor’s Note: Remember that this is the holiday season and it is finals period for college students so I should warn you that ratings can get a bit messy for these next few weeks. Of course, this is the reason why Toonami is showing movies all month to begin with. Also, do note that movie ratings are based on the average of viewership throughout it’s presentation. Otherwise, what do you think of this week’s ratings? Comment below and let us know what you think.
