    Why hasn’t Disney released a press release for the third season of Good Luck Charlie: premiering May 6! Way before June 1!

    I’m so mad at Disney! They just started showing promos for the new season of Good Luck Charlie on Sunday! Only 2 weeks before it premieres! It’s a hyped premiere, too. Plus, its been off the air ( for new episodes ) since December.

    This show is way better than A.N.T Farm!

    Im happy for ANT Farm but very disappointed that Disney has not even released a press release for Good Luck Charlie’s well awaited 6 months big premiere. Disney usually promotes the hell out of special events like these.

    Im also interested as to how ANT Farm does at 8:00. I think it’ll do better than Jessie.

    Um, actually Disney Channel did release a press release fur Good Luck Charlie. Its probably not on this website though.

    ANT Farm or A.N.T Farm is Disney Channel’s WORST original show, it’s better than Austin & Ally.

    However I must say their Canadain acquired series My Babysitter’s a Vampire is pretty good, probably because it connects more with the tween-teen audience more so than younger kiddies and young typically slow sterotypes as Disney tries to make some of their characters. A shame really, there are no teens that act like the ones portayed by the Disney actors/actresses.

    Vanessa Morgan really good in MBAV though.

    My kids LOVE the show ANT Farm – they like that it’s just zany and funny. Good Luck Charlie is a little too sappy for their taste. But both shows are well done. Congrats to ANT Farm with Season 2’s premieres!
