Someone just watching a show on their own has no real impact on ratings. If you have an impact, you would know about it. Nielsen ratings randomly selects households from all over to be considered part of their random survey (which can come in different forms) and if you're not part of their survey group it doesn't matter if you watch the show or not.
I had a Nielsen monitoring box hooked up to my TV for about 4 years, it was a pain it the ass because anytime I wanted to hook a new game system up to my TV or change anything with my TV equipment setup, I had to call them out for an appointment so they could hook their monitoring equipment into it. I finally got out of the program by moving, since if you move they don't want you anymore because their sample sources are targeted specifically to geographic areas.

General opinion over on SSMB is overwhelmingly positive. Everyone seems to love it.
I thought the first episode (Sidekick) was okay. Like, it was a thing. Not bad, not good. Way too rushed for an 11 minute episode and not entertaining to me. The second episode (Eggman becomes Sonic's roommate) was much better. It didn't ever make me laugh out loud, but it was entertaining.

First episode was mediocre. Just kinda felt like it just came and went. Second episode was great though, far better written and Eggman being a dick to Sonic and Tails is great to watch.
Tailored trends are off.

-First half sucked, watched Japanese wrestling instead because of how bored I was
-Second half was better. Eggman stole the show hard, but this was always expected. He's basically the best character in the series for quite a while now (six years!)
-Mike's singing Eggman voiced was the only thing that made me laugh out loud. Other things made me smirk, but that's about it.
-I really liked the voice actors, but their written lines need work. They all feel forgotten compared to Eggman.
-It was stupid that for the big conflict point of the episode, Knuckles, Amy, and Sticks just kind of stood around. They feel very useless right now. This will likely change.
-Sticks isn't funny, but that's expected as the requisite "lolsorandum" character. Her voice was fine though. Maybe kids will like her more?
-This IS a kids cartoon, so I'm not expecting top-grade humor and writing, but would like to see the others shine too.
Hell, my only real complaint? Crush 40's Sonic Boom isn't the show's main theme. Granted, the main theme is barely 10 seconds long because of Cartoon Network wants more ad space time than intro time.

Sticks. The entire character so far, both in this and in the comic from what I saw so far. Knuckles is kind of stupid, but I liked him in Sidekick. Overall, it's mildly amusing, worth a weekly watch anyway.
The 3DS demo though... I don't think I've been this disappointed in a Sonic game ever. I'm the kind of guy who loved even Sonic 06 (besides the ending), but this game... it doesn't really feel like Sonic. The first stage was a complete mess, the worm stage could go for a flash on the official website. The racing stage wasn't that bad, I guess. it was too slow and due to the engine being weird, didn't felt as good as Sonic Rivals 1-2. I have a feeling I'm going to regret this purchase once I make it.

She's not even at ironic love like Big The Cat gets. She's not worth bringing back. Yes, even after her comic adaptation with Shadow that drew the infamous Shadow face.
EDIT: Oh, I see, misread. They may be holding off on Blaze for some reason or another. A shame, out of all the new friends that joined since the Genesis games, Blaze is easily the best of them, far and away. They should bring her in more.
