    no iCarly? Yikes!

  • epicfail037

    Yikes indeed. Lower than any documented audience i’ve seen for it yet.

    Also, I thought Friday’s airing of Monsters Inc had 3.24 million viewers as posted on that page. Why isn’t it here?

  • Noah

    KORRA’s getting great numbers, and you guys gotta deal with it!

  • Jon23812

    KORRA would get more on primetime. Last week was spring break so that’s why it had more.

  • Nick

    haha. Lowest rated iCarly ever.

  • Tess

    The Seddie arc is what caused the ratings to tank and many people to quit the show for good!

    Most Creddie shippers did not even know it was a Creddie episode and it was actually great. It was promoted as a Gibby episode.

  • Sarah

    The Seddie arc held the audience from the previous year, which were very much on decline and even the heavily promoted hour long special of iStart A Fanwar only got 5 million viewers. The episodes after it were in the four million range until iOMG, which got seven million.

    Nothing ruined iCarly except that kids get bored and it is too old.

  • Tommy

    The ratings for the last few episodes of the year before the Seddie Arc were not good at all. iOMG gave it a quick boost of ratings (7 million or so) but the downward spiral was already there.

    iSell Penny Ts got 3.966 million

    iStart a Fanwar got 5.02 million

    iHire an Idiot got 4.916 million

    iPity the Nevel got 4.6 million

  • Really

    iCarly is the most successful scripted show in Nick history and the first to go over 100 episodes. The show is iconic and a show others like it will be compared to for years to come. The most successful scripted show of its kind. It has runs it’s course and looking forward to Dan Schneider’s next creations.

  • Epicfail037

    After some talk that I heard on both the iCarly and Victorious Wikis, i’m starting to think Nielsen is at least somewhat at fault for Nick’s dropping ratings as of recent. It was said on the page for the episode in question.
