    26 million votes for GLC > 100k views for Korra promo

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    Legend Of Korra, the #1 ANIMATED SERIES, Beating out GRAVITY FALLS, in both total viewers, and demo, is airing IT’S BIGGEST SEASON FINALE YET! Legend of Korra is the sequel to Avatar: The last Air Bender that got over 7 MILLION vievers on it’s finale, and even beat SPONGEBOB, in demos, and viewers, AND beat it out for a 2012 Kids Choice award. Korra Averages More than 3.5 MILLION Viewers, and is airing it’s FINALE THIS SATURDAY @ 11 AM, ONLY ON NICKELODEON!

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    4.5 Million viewers for Korra’s premiere > Gravity Falls series premiere WITH a strong lead in.

  • RHONJd

    Nickelodeon Rocks 2012 are you serious?

  • RHONJd

    Some people take this all to serious

  • Jenna

    Umm are all of you stupid? You do realize comparing a plot based animated series (Korra) to a Live action comedy show (GLC) in ratings is like comparing a watermelon to an apple. Nickelodeon only has Korra on the fact that people watched Avatar and that’s frankly their only successful show. While GLC is part of MULTIPLE shows that are successful on Disney.
    Disney right now is destroying everyone in the ratings (as shown above) so one show (like Korra) won’t make a grand turn around for Nick because once it’s gone for the season, they have nothing else while Disney will continue to churn out shows. So, relax Nick fanboys and watch your channel die.

    GO GOOD LUCK CHARLIE

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Jenna
    Hahaha u make me laugh.!! :D
    Ummm really did you just say that avatar is their only succesfull show.!!?? If u havent noticed spongebob, icarly, victorious, the fairly odd parents, etc, have all been succesfull.. They score higher ratings most of the times than some disney show like lame ant farm, austin and ally, phinese and ferb,etc. So when you compare shows between both channels, nickelodeon wins hands down.. All of the disney shows are so ehhh…In other words lame.. The only thing that helps disney is their movies.. Without them disney would always lose..O and once korra is gone you think nick has nothing else to air hahaha… Jenna you do relize there is a new eps of icarly, victorious, big time rush, how to rock, tuff puppy, spongebob, the fairly odd parents, and many more that are airing over the summer/year right..??? Your truly the stupid one.. Nick would never die…!!

  • RHONJd

    I luv Nickelodeon, well clearly, Disney, is the BEST

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    Let the disney fans have their moment considering Disney has been failing in the demo and total viewers for the past 15 years! Nick also has MULTIPLE successful shows for example, Spongebob, Victorious, iCarly, Fairly, Tuff, Penguins, nickelodeon just has problems with promoting, and when they don’t promote an episode/show enough, they have low ratings. And even though iCarly is very low right now, it currently averages 4.5 Million viewers, thanks to all it’s past episodes. Do you know ANY Disney shows that average that number of viewers, just wondering? And I’m not jealous, @Rhon, Why would I be jealous of the Disney Channel “winning” in this battle or whatever. It’s not my fault Nickelodeon is failing. I’m expressing my opinions. You’re the one who started “WATCH GOOD LUCK CHARLIE”!!! Like seriously.

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    @Jenna, EXCUSE ME? Watch our channel die? Number one I don’t like being called a “Nick Fanboy”. We’re talking about the Korra finale, not Korra OVERALL. NONE of disney’s shows barley pull in something over 3.5 million viewers. And when they pull in something like 3.2 million ALL OF YOU DISNEY PREPS, who probably get paid by disney to post a comment, LOL, you all start cheering and jumping and saying yay! But when Nickelodeon pulls in something like that, All of you start finding CONS out of the rating(s). Your channel has been dead for the past 15 YEARS! LMAO! Your “favorite channel” is just now catching up in this ratings race, that will sadly NEVER end.

  • RHONJd

    Will it be a boy or a girl? Find out this Sunday on the ONE HOUR episode of Good Luck Charlie at 8PM/7C only on Disney Channel. Watch!!!

  • RHONJd

    BTW: comparing Korra to Gravity Falls is like comparing Suite Life on Deck to just say, iCarly. You can’t compare a spinoff show to a show that is new, with new characters, new plot, new setting, new EVERYTHING.

  • Amy

    I agree with RHONJd you cant compare a new show to a old show.

  • Amy

    you nickelodeon fans should really learn your facts. iCarly had 2.3 million viewers and Victorious had 2.6 million viewers. Ant farm had 2.7 million viewers and Austin and Ally had 2.8 million viewers so be quiet and learn your facts because your acting like immature little kids. Disney BEATED Nick and is #1 so you nickelodeon fans just cant handle that Disney is #1 now and Nickelodeon is #2 now. Nick is seeing huge decreases in viewership and Disney is seeing big increases because their smarter than nick! :D

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    @Amy Before you go calling us, excuse me, that other nickelodeon fan immature, check your grammar because “Disney Beated Nick” doesn’t make any sense. I love how @Rhon doesn’t reply to my whole paragraph I wrote for him ;)

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    Also, @Amy Sweetie, I KNOW my facts. I don’t post crap on here like some of you. I’ve been a commenter (visitor) for 2 years. I know now (Unlike some of you immature kids) What facts/opinions are.

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    @Rhon LOL, you’re annoying on your twitter also, http://twitter.com/#!/RHONJd Hahahaah. :)

  • Amy

    yes RHONJd did started watch good luck charlie thing but then YOU started doing the watch legend of korra thing so i mean this in a nice way as possible please stop copying other people like for example yes I did called nickelodeon fans immature KIDS but look at you calling us immature kids so don`t go copying people. Make up your own words PLEASE! I mean this in a nice way as possible and i hope you don`t send in a MEAN reply like you did last time because I`m being nice to you. At least be happy for Disney but if your NOT a Disney fan than don`t be mean to Disney fans.

  • RHONJd
