    Haha…this is very sad even for disney! NICK has won the NUMBER 1 DEMO 2-11 & Total Viewers for TWO straight Weeks…NICK is the number 1 channel! GROW UP DISNEY.

    Disney Channel has so much potential but they don’t try at all. They bring their terrible ratings on them self. Hard to say but its true. Schedule changes could put them right over Nickelodeon.
