    ?? Did they really do THAT good in the demo even though they were both under 3.2 million?

  • Kaylie

    The viewers dont matter. The demo does.

  • RHONJd

    Nickelodeon Rocks 2012,

    Like Kaylie said, it is the demo that counts. The K6-11 and T9-14 is more popular than viewers in the kids world like A18-49 is more important than viewers in the adult worls. And the demo is something Disney does GREAT in, while Nick lacks!

    Sorry for the grammar mistake!

  • Sean

    No, 2-11 Demo is the most important!

  • Ryan

    There’s something still baffling about this.

    It seems that there are three demos for kid shows, ages 2-11, ages 6-11, and ages 9-11 (or 14, correct me if I’m wrong). Is it just me, or are they rating the kids that are age 9-11 THREE TIMES and rating those ages 6-8 TWICE? Doesn’t the 2-11 demo rate every single kid who watches?

    Can someone help me out on this?
