The Clone Wars is a Hit on Cartoon Network


Highest Ever Premiere in Cartoon Network History

It seems a lot of people tuned in to watch the new Star Wars series on Cartoon Network.  I know the video I posted last week got over 5200 views.  This is good news as far as I'm concerned.  I'm all for a continuing Star Wars show. 

Did you watch it?  What did you think?  If you missed it, you can catch them on Cartoon Network's website one week after they air on television.

Here's the data on the number of viewers.
