    How well did My Babysitter’s a Vampire do on Disney Channel?

  • disney rocks

    Can’t believe MBAV didn’t make it-

    The top 5 (until Fish Hooks, P&F, and MBAV results come out)

    1. Gravity FALLS
    2. BTR- I’m shocked
    3. FIO
    4. A.N.T Farm
    5. ————-

    My guess is that Nick will have 2 entries and Disney will have 3- I’m shocked BTR could make the chart

  • RHONJd

    I expected a low Friday Night For Disney. Nothing was promoted well, and ANT Farm’s promo was very…dumb.The promo had no main plot, it was just a bunch of random scenes. But the episode was good though. Disney Channel is really neglecting My Babysitter’s a Vampire.

  • Anthony

    @Robert

    Reason I asked about My Babysitter’s a Vampire is because Disney seems to want to promote it less than their original shows, it doesn’t too bad considering it’s low promotion, it’d do better with more I do believe.

    And let me remind everyone that episodes in season 1 were beating out iCarly in the age 2-11 demographic especially. If Disney doesn’t want to promote MBaV, why do they even bother trying to air it in slots with theit original primetime programming? – It makes no sense, like the show Gravity Falls (crap).

    Friday’s episode of GF was a tug at CBS’s Criminal Minds, naming a character after Mandy Pantikin’s character, Gideon.

  • Jon23812

    The Disney Channel schedule for Friday was weird. It should have been like this.

    8:00 – A.N.T. Farm
    8:30 – Phineas & Ferb
    8:45 – Gravity Falls
    9:15 – My Babysitter’s a Vampire
    9:45 – Fish Hooks

    I hope “Gravity Falls” won the night on Disney Channel’s Friday, but I want the ratings to improve.

  • Ivan

    @Nick, do you have 5pm Figure It Out ratings? Tyvm :)

  • Anthony

    And then My Babysitter’s a Vampire is excluded from “Adventure Weekend”, I don’t understand why, the upcoming episode “Fanged and Furious/Evil Car” seems adventurous!

    Disney should be ashamed really. They have some crappy original shows: Jessie, Shake It Up, Fish Hooks, and Gravity Falls. And the fair originals get crappy promotion like A.N.T. Farm.

    Maybe Dan S. creator of iCarly & Victorious should go to Disney and lend them a hand. Stephen Hillenburg should take over Spongebob again and move it to Disney. They need help.

  • Kaylie

    What people dont understand is that MBAV is a canadian imported show. Its not a Disney original series. I do agree that they need to move the shows around because their numbers could be better. Disneys shows are not crappy. They need scheduling changes for the Fall.

  • Ram510

    Smackdown was not a original, it was a repeat of Tuesday’s episode

  • JJ

    Wow, and to think that Disney DESTROYED Nick last week. GF, as crappy as its ratings are IT BEAT ant farm, at 9:30 no less. Spongebob as always beat both on 2 SEPERATE RERUNS!!!!

  • JJ

    Oh and when did BTR make the list

  • Anthony

    The show Spongebob Squarepants has “jumped the shark” in the most unimaginable ways, but I’d rather watch it that Fish Hooks or Gravity Falls.

    Spongebob would be back on top for sure if Stephen Hillenburg took the show back over as show runner/executive producer.

  • Jon23812

    @Kaylie, but they treated “Life With Derek” with respect. In think “My Babysitter’s a Vampire” would do better on Sundays. I also think they are running out of room, because they are show “Phineas & Ferb” and “Fish Hooks” episodes in halves instead of wholes.

    And they are having 2 more shows. “Code 9″ will most likely be cancelled after a few episodes, and I’m not sure about “Dog With a Blog”.

  • Jon23812

    @Anthony, I know Fish Hooks is bad (It shouldn’t have even been renewed for a second season), but why is Gravity Falls bad?

  • Ayranci

    Gravity Falls isn’t for kids; but Gravity Falls is the best Disney show ever. Also you’re forgot Phineas and Ferb, Fish Hooks and My Babysitter is a Vampire ratings.

  • Ryan Stoppable

    “Friday’s episode of GF was a tug at CBS’s Criminal Minds, naming a character after Mandy Pantikin’s character, Gideon.”

    Not likely. Also, even though *you* think it’s “crap,” there’s obviously plenty of people who don’t based on its ratings.

  • Ryan Stoppable

    @Ayranci: No, they just weren’t in the top 100 shows of the day for Adults 25-54, not surprising for shows that aren’t targeted at Adults 25-54.

  • Anthony

    @Ryan Stoppable

    Quantity doesn’t equal quality.

    All Gravity Falls is, is quantity. ANT Farm is quality. Do the math.

  • JJ

    Spongebob Season 8 has Spongebob back to his normal ways. Watch Season 6’s Model Sponge and compare it to Season 8’s Treats! and you’ll see my point

  • Kaylie

    @Jon23812… MBAV would do better on Sundays. BTW, they play the show in halves now so that they would have more new episodes to premiere weekly instead of wasting a week worth of shows 2 episodes. It was confirmed that Dog with a Blog will premiere in the fall, which I think deserves a Good Luck Charlie lead in. Code 9 just seems like a summer show similar to last years Prankstars.

    ANT Farm is a really good show that could do really well. Disney doesn’t promote the show that well. They should have ANT Farm marathons, have China make appearances and perform on talk shows or star in a Disney movie to gain some attention to the show.
