    Its been like 3 weeks since Nick was number 1. Disneys gonna be back #1 next week. Especially with the big Good Luck Charlie premiere.

    Disney is doing great! It is definitely giving Nick a run for its money! I wonder who is gonna win in total viewers this year!?! I’m sure Good Luck Charlie with premiere around 4 million. Disney did too little promotion to get the ratings GLC deserves
