  • RHONJd

    Go Disnwy Channel!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RHONJd

    Go Disney Channel! Take that,,, all you Nick lovers! BAM!!!

  • Joseph

    I thought the three NBA playoff games would have given ESPN the win among all cable and broadcast networks in average prime-time viewing and 18-49′s last week (June 4th-10th).

    ESPN probably topped prime-time viewing among men.

  • Sean

    NICKELODEON IS STILL THE BEST!!!!!!! DISNEY SUCKS..

  • RHONJd

    Sean, the ratings speak for themselves….and clearly Disney is the BEST! Nick sucks……

  • Sean

    Lets see if they can keep it up next week!!! losers…

  • RHONJd

    Sean, they surely will with Let it Shine on Friday, two repeats on Saturday, a repeat on Sunday, and a NEW Austin & Ally!

  • RHONJd

    When I say two repeats on Saturday and a repeat on Sunday, I mean repeats of Let it Shine. On Saturday, there is a repeat at 11, going against Legend of Korra and their is a repeat at 7:30 going against Nick’s failing Saturday Prime time line up. I’m not sure if there is a new BTR, iCarly, Victorious, or HTR because I rarely watch Nick. The Subday repeat will serve as a lead in to AN All New Austin & Ally. I think this will be a great week for Disney

  • RHONJd

    I also forgot to mention an ALL NEW Good Luck Charlie will serve as a lead in to Let it Shine on Friday @ 7:30. And after the premiere of Let it Shine, there is a special preview of Gravity Falls!

  • RHONJd

    Nickelodeon’s biggest hits, iCarly & Victorious, we’re beat by Shake it Up (a new episode & a repeat), ANT Farm, Jessie, Phineas and Ferb, Fish Hooks, and a Friday repeat of Good Luck Charlie. These Disney shows also beat a special 1 hour Bucket & Skinner, a new Penguins of Madagascar……..GO DISNEY

  • RHONJd

    Don’t Forget to watch LET IT SHINE, Friday the 15th @ 8/7 after an all new Good Luck Charlie (7:30) on Disney Channel. (cc)

  • Sean

    LEGEND OF KORRA IS A HUGE SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!! IT BEATS EVERYTHING ON DISNEY! & I WOULD LOWER MY EXPECTATIONS IF I WERE YOU…

  • RHONJd

    Sean, however Legend of Korra is mostly watched by teens & adults, which is not Nick’s main demographic. What good is a kids show with many viewers, if most of those viewers aren’t the important demographic that the show is aimed at. Disney’s shows do great in the kids and Tweens demographics! That is why Disney is always number one with kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14! And this week, Disney was number one with kids 2-11, kids 6-11, Tweens 9-14′ and total viewers. So Sean, before you say something, make sure you have facts to back them up. Words are only words, and there is no truth to words that have no true meaning. Remember that, Sean, for next week.

  • Kaylie

    Disney has better kids quality programming. Nickelodeon doesnt have proper children series. Even Spongebob isnt getting the hyped ratings anymore. I think Let it Shine, a new Good Luck Charlie, Austin & Ally & gravity Falls will boost Disneys ratings.

  • RHONJd

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU KAYLIE :) :)

  • Nickelodeon Rules

    What Channel Was On Top For 17 Years!!! Disney wasn’t, it was NICKELODEON!!! SO SHUT UP ROHNjd

  • RHONJd

    Nickelodeon Rules,
    Which Channel has become a downward spiral? Which channel is now losing to Cartoon Network and Disney? Nickelodeon! Maybe you should change your Name to Nickelodeon Sucks.

  • Disney is #1

    Nickelodeon Rules, seriously, are you Kidding ME!! Nick is losing so much of what it used to be! And it’s sad how low Nick’s ratings are going! It is #3 in kids 6-11 (main demographic) and #3 in Tweens 9-14, losing to Disney #1 and Cartoon Network #2. Nick Rules, get the facts!

  • Nickelodeon Rules

    @RJHOND What Channel has only had 2 Animated Shows in 3 Yrs. Oh Yeah Disney A.K.A. The Disgrace To Walt Disney HIMSELF. Maybe you should change your Name To Disney Sucks

  • Nickelodeon Rules

    Spongebob is still the most watched kids show ON TV So Go Tell Bella and Zendaya To Learn How To Act
    PS. They are Good Singers Though
