    @JJ, SpongeBob hasn’t been amazing since 2004 and it hasn’t been good since 2008. Yes they do make good episodes at times, I agree with you on that, but the majority is bad.

  • JJ

    Nickelodeon needs to start airing more episodes of their Animated Programs, especially Tuff Puppy. Tuff Puppy got 4.7 million viewers on a standard episode, was the #2 show with kids 2-11 and has an average of 3.7 million viewers

  • JJ

    @Jon23812
    True Spongebob has lost some quality since Season 3. But Season 8 seems to have less attempts to be ridiculous and have the characters being themselves

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Good evening! Anyway, So Happy for BTR WITH 3 million viewers. The show has its up and downs. Ouch at @ANT. Wasn’t this apart of their summer adventure weekend or is that next weekend?

  • RHONJd

    @Nathan,
    Next week is summer adventure weekend

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Rhon Okay thanks. I do agree how disney didn’t promote good this week. Everything always seems to get out of hands for networks during the summer. I hope Nick improves this fall since they have SO much planned for the 4th (and last quarter.) @JJ I sadly don’t know why, but nickelodeon is actually holding off new episodes for their animated programs until the Fall. I mean the only real 2 big things Nickelodeon has planned for this summer is the 3rd movie in the fred trilogy, and the all day spongebob marathon (associated with the spongebob summer special.) July is starting out to be a hard month for both networks. I hope the “1D Special” ON Nick this Friday or Saturday will do good. I need to check which day it will air on. I’m expecting 2.5+ viewers, maybe 3 million tops.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    It was also post fourth of July so of course everything was going to be low.

  • Anthony

    @Nathan (NR2012): “It was also post fourth of July so of course everything was going to be low.”

    You’re right! That’s why I’m waiting on Robert or Bill Gorman to come here and post the numbers for My Babysitter’s a Vampire if they have them.

  • jay

    Family Guy and BBT are beasts in repeats

  • hereisjohnnyy

    Around the horn finally makes the list. First time in months. PTI always makes it

  • disney rocks

    @Nathan, BTR rounds to 2.9 million, not 3 million.

  • Bryan

  • david

    thanks for the additional disney and Nick ratings.

  • Jon23812

    Fish Hooks did better than Phineas & Ferb and MBAV? That’s not good.

  • melvin

    its all about gavity falls, i love that show and i loved that episode, and i thought that the ant farm wasnt promoted well, if they promoted the advert saying that cameron and venessa will break up, it probably will get more views but im really happy for gravity falls

  • Anthony

    MBAV fell down because Disney moved it without warning, a press release or schedule release from them would do. Nickelodeon does that for most of their shows when they know they are about to shift.

    MBAV airings (all times Eastern):
    2×01 – Welcome Back Dusker – Friday @ 8PM (June 29th)
    2×02 – Say You’ll Be Maztak – Friday @ 8:30PM (July 6th)
    *No new episode July 13th, learned that Friday sadly.
    2×03 – Fanged and Furious/Evil Car – Friday @ 8:30PM (July 20th)
    2×04 – Flushed – Thursday @ 8PM or 8:30PM (July 26th)

    The only way I found this out was checking Zap2It’s Disney Schedule and the MBAV list of episodes.

    If Disney keeps the show a third season, it should be moved to Sunday nights. Disney likely will keep it if Teletoon (Canada) choses to renew, according to their Twitter profile MBAV did fairly well ratings wise on Teletoon. That tells me that Disney is doing something wrong:

    *Lack of advertising.
    *No repeats continue to air throughout the week.
    *They shuffle the episodes around with no warning or when the time window is closing at it’s time for the episodes to air the following week.

    The only cast member from MBAV who has a real “stake” with Disney Channel is Vanessa Morgan. You don’t see the MBAV cast jumping around and hanging with the other Disney show casts. But Vanessa & A.N.T. Farm and Atticus Mitchell was on Radio Rebel, but that’s sadly it.

    Kate Todd was on Life With Derek, seems like they would be itching to want to do well by MBAV. And Cameron Kennedy, don’t know him that well, but they should probably try to put him in a DCOM.

    Jessie’s numbers went up slightly when Debby Ryan did Radio Rebel.

    Disney ought to be ashamed. They better not get me started on how they are using & abusing A.N.T. Farm.

  • Other Than That Mrs. Lincoln How Was The Play?

    The Sea Hippies on Whale Wars are finally taking some lumps after Japan found the few remaining Japanese men left who have any balls. Though they are still pitiful at fighting. I was starting to think they were all killed off in WW II. They need to start hosing down hippie attack boat with that same stinky acid stuff the hippies throw bottles of at the ships. Or line the hulls of the ships with 10 foot long retractable razor sharp spikes so their rubber boats cant get close enough for boarding during their pirate attacks.

    Meanwhile Admiral Psycho sits back while his sheeple eco terrorists/pirates take all the risks. Eventually that lunatic will get some of his people killed. They naturally dont explain the type of whale harvested is the most numerous with a population over 1 million and they might bag 500 a year. Not like they are going after the endangered ones like Humpbacks. For those they just take skin samples with long poles.

  • Ryan Stoppable

    @Anthony: “Quantity doesn’t equal quality. All Gravity Falls is, is quantity. ANT Farm is quality. Do the math.”

    Well, that’s *your* opinion. While many people likely share it, there are also many (including myself) who would have to disagree.

    Also, 2.668 million is a surprisingly large drop for Phineas and Ferb.

  • disney rocks

    The Top 5 on Nick/Disney for the week in millions-

    1. Gravity Falls- 2.954
    2. BTR- 2.936
    3. FIO- 2.8
    4. A.N.T Farm-2.808
    5. Fish Hooks- 2.785

    Nick-2
    Disney-3

    I am very mad about Disney’s scheduling/promotion. The A.N.T Farm promotion was horrible for last friday’s episode; it just showed a bunch of random scenes and had no mention of a plot, plus they don’t even play the promo very much; MBAV had almost zero promotion plus was in a new timeslot; this coming sunday (july 15) there is a new good luck charlie at 7:30- Has Disney not realized it doesn’t work at 7:30 but does great at 8, it has to get shuffled for stupid A&A; also, MBAV should be on Sunday nights

    Here’s what Disney’s schedule should be-

    Sunday-

    7:30- MBAV- It would be good for GLC to have an original episode as a lead-in, plus it needs to stay put in one timeslot
    8-GLC- Leave it here Disney!
    8:30- Jessie- This would probably work well on Sundays
    9- A&A

    Friday-

    8- SIU
    8:30-A.N.T Farm
    9- P&F/Fish Hooks
    9:30- Gravity Falls

    Saturday (occasionally)-

    9AM- P&F
    9:30AM- Fish Hooks

    I want Disney to do new episodes of cartoons on Saturday mornings

  • Nathan (NR2012) on iPhone

    Disney should just move all their teenybopper bopper shows to Fridays and their family shows to Sundays. So GLC, Jessie, Sunday’s – SIU, Austin, ANT Fridays and maybe even move their animation block to Saturday mornings even though it would fail due to spongebobs domination
