    But I just read on this very site that Nickelodeon was #1 this week in total viewers!

    WHO IS #1 FOR THE WEEK?!?!?!?!?!!?

    Ryan, I answered your post on the Nickelodeon ratings page. :D

    Anyways, GREAT for Disney. They have certainly come a LONG way and now they are neck and neck with Nickelodeon! They certainly give Nick a run for their money. Nick vs. Disney is the ultimate ratings race! BTW, really good for Good Luck Charlie, it survived Avengers, and low promotion, and yet managed to pass the four million mark! Hopefully, GLC can adjust it their new times lot, 7:30, serving as a lead in for both Austin and Ally and Shake it Up! GO DISNEY CHANNEL!

    Disney sure know how to spin the numbers …
