The Spandex Report
DAVID YOST.
May 1, 2011

News
- Last week we mentioned the theory that "a lot of folks think Samurai's ratings would get a significant bump if the show moved new episodes to Saturdays permanently". Looks like that's about to be tested, as the next episodes we have airdates for have indeed been moved from Sunday up to Saturday. Please to be changing your DVR settings!
- Our own [personal profile] thesecondbatgirl attended No Pink Spandex Live this weekend, alongside quite a few of our followers. Word from the masses is that the event was "freaking amazing" and that David Yost is the nicest ever. We're glad everyone had fun! For those who couldn't make it, pictures and video are coming in the future.
- The Samurai Rangers visit the White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll.
- The Samurai Rangers also stopped by a school in Arkansas as part of their emPOWER program. Click here to learn more about the emPOWER program.

News
- Take a look at the schedule below to make sure you don't miss it: next week's episode (the first after a week break) airs this coming Saturday. This is the only episode in the schedule below that is currently set for a Saturday premiere, though a lot of folks think Samurai's ratings would get a significant bump if the show moved new episodes to Saturdays permanently, so perhaps this is a test along those lines. Either way, make sure you turn in Saturday and not Sunday, or else you'll miss the ep.

This "emergency" report isn't nearly as important as the last one we did back in May about Saban getting a hold of PR again, but anyways. Those of you who don't check the forums or various journal communities may be unaware that a new episode of Samurai is airing this Sunday. Previously, the next episode, Forest for the Trees, wasn't airing until April 10, but it's been moved up to two days from now. Word around the rumor mill is that this is because the ratings for Samurai are just that good, although it's worth noting that only one episode was moved forward; Test of the Leader will still air in late April. Either way, be sure to turn on your TV's or DVR boxes this Sunday at noon.
