TRON Uprising - Ratings Not Doing Well

According to Charlie Bean, Executive Producer on TRON Uprising, the ratings are not doing well. The show will not be airing this week on the Disney XD channel, and will likely be rescheduled to another time slot.

Bad news for an animated series, that I think is far superior to the actual Tron Legacy movie sequel we got. :(


The ratings are not good unfortunately. The show needs more eyeballs.

November 17th, 2012 UPDATE: Charlie Bean has updated fans on the status of TRON Uprising, and it's looking very bad. Disney has rescheduled the show to Sundays at midnight on Disney XD, starting on Dec. 2nd.

This time slot marks the death of Uprising, unfortunately. We'll get 8 more episodes, but then it will be cancelled. I can't see it being renewed for another season. Really hate having to report this kind of news. TRON Uprising was such a quality show, and deserves better!


News for fans of TRON Uprising. The show will return to XD at a new time: Sundays at Midnight (technically Mon morn) starting Dec. 2nd.

Some folks are saying Disney is moving Uprising to that 12 AM time slot to compete with Adult Swim on Cartoon Network, and that Disney has finally clued in that the number of older fans watching is more important than they originally thought.

Sadly, I can't see this as anything other than a death sentence. But I would be glad to be proven wrong.

January 11th, 2013 UPDATE: As I feared, TRON Uprising is being cancelled. Very disappointed with the way Disney has handled Uprising, and TRON in general, over the years.

Going to miss the best thing to happen to TRON in almost a decade.

There's another petition you can sign if you want to (link below, thanks to deeahchur for making me aware of it), and you can also try tweeting @TronLegacy and @DisneyChannelPR on Twitter to express your disappointment.

You might also want to read this article I wrote about petitions, and what chance I think a TRON Uprising petition has of working.

January 13th, 2013 UPDATE: Found an article on IGN where Edward Kitsis is apparently claiming the fate of TRON Uprising is "undecided".

However, if you read between the lines it translates to "if we don't get a lot more viewers, quickly, the show is cancelled".

Maybe an outpouring of support NOW might still have an effect, though.
