  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Nickelodeon needs to start airing episodes of their animated shows, ASAP!! (Spongebob @ 9/9:30, Fairly Odd Parents @ 10, Kung FU Panda @ 10:30, Penguins @ 11, TUFF Puppy @ 11:30. And throw in 2 korra repeats @ 12/12:30 and than for the rest of the day air repeats of Live action shows (Vic, HTR, BTR, iCarly.) Than @ 5 – 7 throw in some more spongebob. @ 7 air FIGURE IT OUT and @ 7:30 air BTR AGAIN. This will help Nickelodeon winn summer 2012, sadly, the people who work for the promotion department and scheduling department are complete idiots.

    It would be important to note that EURO 2012 was airing on ESPNDeportes as well..The combined audience would be over 5 million (making the Euros Final at #7)…ESPNDeportes will see about 1 million additional viewers for this game (projected)…it could be more…

  • nilton

    and falling skies ?

  • Korra FTW

    Nick probably won’t be having many in the top 25 besides Victorious until The Legend of Korra season 2 starts. Nick needs to start treating Korra with respect and green light more than 2 seasons. I hope Nick treats TLOK with respect in season 2.

    For starters they need to get Korra out of the morning slot and into a night slot, because people don’t like to get up at 10 AM on Saturdays! All the Korra episodes did phenomenal though for a show that airs so early in the morning.

    Anyway, yeah there probably won’t be much from Nick aside from Victorious until The Legend of Korra is back.



  • Korra FTW

    @ Nathan, I know. Nickelodeon doesn’t treat their shows with respect. The only time they repeat Korra is on Nicktoons….WHY!?!!! Not everyone has Nicktoons. They need to show Korra at nights.

  • disney rocks

    Despite the fact that Victorious is their best live action show, its not airing on the 7, 14, or 21 of July. It could air the 28, though. Nick does bad scheduling.

  • disney rocks

    Good for Disney reruns!

  • disney rocks

    Why does Nickelodeon never seem to air new episodes of any of there animated shows?

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @DisneyRocks IKR? They NEED to air new episodes of their animated programs and stop relying on stupid Spongebob! and @Korra FTW I do agree. They should probably move Korra to Fridays @ 8. It wouldn’t affect ANT Farm because both shows have 2 completely different audiences. But anyways, congrats disney.

    #Euro 2012 Final…

    4.1 million on ESPN
    1.1 million Spanish Viewers on ESPNDeportes…

    Combined audience was about 5.2 million on both platforms…Therefore, EURO2012 final will end-up at #7 with the combined audience for this week…

  • Mike

    Better Korra than all the reruns on Nickelodeon, the scheduling is very bad. There are no new episodes until the end of the month, bad.. bad.. bad..

  • disney rocks

    Nick new episodes for the month of July-

    Spongebob- 4 15 minute episodes; July 21
    Figure It Out- a lot
    Victorious- 0 or 1; July 28 possibly
    iCarly- 0 or 1; July 28 possibly
    HTR- 0 or 1; July 28 possibly
    BTR- at least 2; July 2, July 9, etc.
    The Fairly Odd Parents- O
    T.U.F.F Puppy- probably 0
    The Penguins of Madagascar- probably 0
    Kung FU panda- 0

    Other- ODCS (July 14)

    Only 3 shows and a special are guaranteed to air a new episodes in July! Nick does horrible scheduling!

    The worst scheduling they do is T.U.F.F Puppy. Its been renewed for a third season and they have ten episodes from the second season waiting to air that were probably filmed a long time ago. Why not air them? Horrible scheduling!

  • disney rocks


    legend of korea- 0

  • disney rocks

    Congrats Nick&Victorious

  • Epicfail037

    Nice to see Victorious regain some good momentum! I’m willing to bet the fact that the NBA playoffs ended had something to do with it, though.

  • tony

    the third fred movie is airing on july 28

  • Jon23812

    @Nathan, I watch both A.N.T. Farm and The Legend of Korra, but I would choose “Korra” over that if it aired the same time.

  • Korra FTW

    @ tony, Fred has got to be the most annoying thing to ever exist on this planet. Ever. It’s shows like that (Fred movies, show blah blah blah) that are ruining television and making kids stupider. They aren’t allowed to show very much violence on kids tv, but they can show things like Fred that lack any bit of intelligence? It’s a shame really.
