    I luv Nickelodeon,,,, expect the unexpected

  • I luv Nickelodeon

    There called typos.!!

  • RHONJd

    I luv Nickelodeon, and there is also a thing called spell checker……

  • I luv Nickelodeon

    Well @RJHONjd
    Nick does have the #1 spot learn to research correctly.!
    O and since when does Nick air the same shows everyday Everytime.!? Nick airs Spongebob, icarly, victorious, fairyoddparents, kunfo panda, and tuff puppy.! So just like Disney, nick doesn’t rely on one show.! Nick airs a lot more cartoons than Disney, which is what kids watch more often.! Disney’s mostly airs live action shows cuz they know their cartoons don’t come close to Nicks.!! So like you said the ratings speak for themselfs.!

  • I luv Nickelodeon

    Spell checker really ummm yeah I think I know dat, but it doesn’t always work.!

  • I luv Nickelodeon

    I don’t hate Disney if dat is what ur thinking, I just don’t like most of their programs.! The only good show
    Is GLC.!

  • Fancy Pants

    Good LuckCharlie did good at 7:30 Cleveland Show could barely even break 3.2
    Let it shine I was expecting 2-4M tops I was hoping They would show all that promotion for nothing
    Gravity falls I was expecting it to get like 5M and beat let it shine

  • I luv Nickelodeon

    O and there is also something called shorten words to have more space.!
    For ex: that•••> dat
    Two•••> 2

  • I luv Nickelodeon

    O and Bella thorn is 2 thumbs down :p.!!
    Victoria Justice is 1000000000xxx better.!!!
    So is Ariana grande and Miranda cosgrove.!
    O and u still haven’t told me what I made up.!!

  • RHONJd

    You can’t fight with stupid….

  • RHONJd

    Forget fighting, truth is, you can’t even talk to stupid people because they can’t comprehend or understand what you write. What a shame

  • RHONJd

    Like I’ve said and will continue to say: The ratings speak for themselves.

    And clearly Nick’s shows got NOTHING on Disney’s shows.

  • Disney and Nickelodeon Rocks

    Disney and Nickelodeon Rocks and you both know it!!!So…You guys were Dis agreeing for nothing,true story dude

  • Lord Seth

    @ Jon23812

    @Nickelodoen Rocks 2012, iSaved Your Life was not the #1 telecast with kids and tweens. High School Musical 2 was with 17.4 million viewers, and in 2001 the 10th anniversary episode of Rugrats got 12 million viewers, then there’s the Wizards of Waverly Place movie with 11.4 million views, then iSaved Your Life with 11.2 million views.

    High School Musical 2 and the Wizards movie are both, well, movies though. If they were talking just episodes, their statement still stands.

  • hi

    @i luv nickelodeon
    why do you talk like such an ignorant little kid..

    your talk like:
    “I love miranda and grande and spongebob. icarly and nick are so cool, victoria is so cool! so many people watch nick!!! it number 1… it very popular!! im in love with miranda so nick is better”

    im not even kidding, thats how you talk.

  • edumo

    @i luv nickelodeon – how old are you? hah… you sound like your in love with all the nick girls

    disney airs a lot of movies a year, but nick can’t afford to.
    also, nick needs commercials cuz they dont have any money, but disney doesn’t.
    alot of the team from cartoon network has moved to disney to make cartoons, but you seem like a kid that watches nothing but spongebob.

    also, disney has ondemand and mobile watching so people can watch shows/movies a week before it airs, and mobile watching most likely doesnt count on ratings. disney can do all that because it doesnt count on ratings that commercials need like nick does to run its station.
    talk to me when nick can create a movie that has ratings to actually compete with dcoms. don’t blame it on the basketball game becuase its a totally different demo.

  • awesome

    Your only cheating yourself, @i luv nickelodeon

  • Jon23812

    @Lord Sith, well Rugrats’ All Growed Up is an episode and still has 0.8 million more viewers than iSaved Your Life.

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    Woah! Some of yo are blowing this WAYY out of proportion. When I said iCarly is #1 and bla bla bla I meant episode, (tv show wise.) Also, @edumo are you calling every network on television (excluding disney) poor because they need commercials? You’re an IDIOT.You clearly don’t know how the TV business works, and you need help. I actually am Probably the most mature fan here right now because you’re all arguing over iCarly, or Wizards, or whatever! Some of you GROW UP and stop fighting over 2 stupid tv networks. Also, some of you need to understand that Disney is only winning in the demos K6-11, and T9-14, while Nickelodeon is winning in the K2-11 demo. None of you Disney fans can prove ME WRONG, BECAUSE WHAT I JUST POSTED, ARE FACTS. So once again, stop acting like wild animals, and stop fighting! You little kids, are seriously annoying. Where are Bill/Robert when you need them. -.-

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    I would also like to add, that Nick WAS (not anymore due to LIS) the number one network In total viewers, and with K2-11, while Disney was #1 with K6-11, AND T9-14. (:
