Tokusatsu TV Ratings [2/12 – 2/16]
Beginning with this post, The Tokusatsu Network will be updating readers with TV viewership ratings for the current airing tokusatsu shows.
TV ratings are important for showcasing how much of the audience is tuning into your program as it airs live. The ratings are also important for showcasing how often a competing program is beating, tied, or losing to your program in various key demographics. On the rare occasion that a program airs at night, its ratings will typically be lower than those that air in the mornings and daytime. Ratings for the GARO TV shows will rarely crawl above the 2% range due to the time it airs – typically between 1 AM and 3 AM.
In general, a TV rating can be summed up simply as ‘the percent of the total viewing audience at the moment‘ – 4% means 4% of everyone watching TV in a given location, usually Tokyo, is watching said program.
It’s important to note that while The Tokusatsu Network strives to provide accurate and reliable information, ratings for shows not found within the top 10 for various categories are usually not released to the public. This means that the sources used by The Tokusatsu Network, while proving to be reliable in the past, are by no means guaranteed to be accurate and may change without prior notice.
Without further ado, these are the TV ratings for the tokusatsu shows that aired between February 12th and the 16th – due to a change in the way information is released, ratings for these programs are on a one month delay.
Kamen Rider Gaim
New Ultraman Retsuden
New Ultraman Retsuden is the second in the Ultraman Retsuden line of shows. Rather than produce an entirely new show, Tsuburaya opted to showcase what they consider to be the best moments from the history of the franchise. The episodes range from clips of various shows strung together around a specific theme to simply reruns of past episodes or even movies.
On occasion, the Retsuden series will showcase miniseries. Ultra Zero Fight was a short show composed of 26 three-minute episodes following Ultraman Zero’s fight against a revived enemy. The current miniseries is Giant Monster Rush, a CGI series following three aliens as they battle monsters on various planets.
Ultraman Ginga is a separate two-season short-run show that is at the same time considered as part of New Ultraman Retsuden’s episode count. Retsuden and Ginga share the same time slot, as such, episodes have been marked to denote when an episode of Ultraman Ginga aired.

Kind of disappointed with Tsubuyara that they haven’t produced a new full length show since Mebius.
