Well, now I feel extra bad for being two seasons behind on Legend of Korra: after dismal ratings for its third (yet brilliant, I’ve been told) season this year, Nickeloden has started to quietly pull some of the show’s episodes.
While the first episode of the series in 2012 saw an audience of 4.55 million viewers and the second season premiere, which was then the highest, the ratings have not been so favoriable since; the second season premiere only got about 2.60 million viewers, and the third saw 1.5 million. Recently, the fourth and fifth episodes got as low as 1.1 million viewers.
As a response, Nickelodeon has pulled one of the episodes from this Friday, and two more that were scheduled to air between August 1st and August 8th. It’s unclear when they plan to air them now, but considering that this season’s already had its share of airing problems, it’s hard to be optimistic about the show’s chances. Hopefully we’ll get some kind of an answer this weekend during Comic-Con.
