Jem was the #1 Nielsen rated syndicated cartoon show in November 1986 and in 1987 it was the 3rd most watched children's program in syndication with 2.5 million viewers weekly. Jem has aired in multiple countries including Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, United States, Italy and France. The show was nominated for the Young Artist Award twice, once in 1986 for "Exceptional Young Actresses in Animation: Series, Specials, or Film Features" for Samantha Newark's performance, then in 1988 for "Best Animation Series".
The long-standing popularity of Mattel's Barbie franchise led to a competition between Hasbro's toy line and Barbie and the Rockers, a similar line by Mattel, which resulted in reduced sales for both products. Hasbro discontinued the Jem toy line at the end of 1987 after it failed to meet sales expectations, but despite this, the show continued production and aired until 1988. Jem was released partially on DVD in multiple countries, with a complete set available for the first time in 2011. In 2011 Jem began airing on The Hub in the U.S., causing a significant increase in the ratings for the channel. It also aired on Teletoon Retro in Canada.
