Popularity, Success, and Reception
The first mention of the show was on October 12, 1996 on a Internet forum on a website about discussing TV shows. The post was made by a user on the site whose username was "TheNormalPerson". That post was deleted manually on the site sometime between 2005 and 2008 by an abusive Admin on the site. However, it was found in the website's files and it read: "Did you guys know a new tv show called ExplodingTNT will premiere on the tv channel called Null on October 14th 1996?"
The show did not become popular until around the end of season 2.
In June 1998, the show had already gathered 4 million viewers, which is a high number. This made the show and Null (the channel the show airs on) successful and popular. As a result, in response, Null immediately renewed the show for a 4th season and started production in a video game based on the show.
On December 5, 1998, a study made by the channel concluded that 39% of the shows viewers were adults, and 61% of the shows viewers were children aged 6-18. As a result, starting on January 2, 1999, Null gave the show 6:00 AM, 6:30 AM, 6:00 PM, and 8:30 PM timeslots for weekdays and weekends.
On May 22, 1999, the same day season 4 finished airing its first 4 episodes, Nick Glossem, in his review on Variety, claimed that "While the show has a large account of viewers in the United States, the show includes adventures, humor, and exciting and unexpected episode plots." and gave the show 4.9 stars out of 5 stars.
On January 29, 2001, due to the extremely high amount of positive rating and reviews, Null announced they renewed the show for a 7th season, and also announced that season 6 will premiere in February 2001.
