WWE Smackdown and House of Payne tied for Friday's highest rated cable original with both shows earning a 0.6 adults 18-49 ratingHouse of Payne matched last week's performance, while WWE Smackdown was down two tenths from last week. There were an unusual number of repeats due to Fourth of July holiday week scheduling.

    8:30 – A.N.T. Farm
    9:00 – Jessie
    9:30 – Phineas & Ferb
    9:45 – Fish Hooks

    Saturday
    8:00 – 10:00 – Repeat of shows that didn’t do well on it’s original premiere.

    Sunday
    7:00 – Good Luck Charlie
    7:30 – My Babysitter’s A Vampire
    8:00 – Shake it Up
    8:30 – Austin & Ally

  • disney rocks

    @Jon23812- I hate your Disney schedule

  • Anthony

    I think Disney’s schedule should be this:

    Friday
    7:00 & 7:30 – Repeats
    8:00 – Fish Hooks
    8:30 – Gravity Falls
    9:00 – A.N.T. Farm
    9:30 – My Babysitter’s A Vampire
    10:00-midnight – A (2010-present aired) movie

    Sunday
    7:00 & 7:30 – Repeats
    8:00 – Phineas & Ferb
    8:30 – Good Luck Charlie
    9:00 – Shake it Up
    9:30 – Austin & Ally
    10:00-midnight – A (2010-present aired) movie

  • pokemonmon

    my babysitters a vampire is a great show and im surprised it didnt make the list. im not a big fan of disney shows but i do like jessie, and gravity falls ALOT. keep in mind people that these shows are aimed at modern children not at teenagers and young adults which is im guessing are posting on this board.

  • Jon23812

    @Disney rocks, You comment would be more valid if you explained why you hate it instead of just simply saying you hate it.

    @Anthony, Seems good, but what about Jessie?

  • disney rocks

    @Jon, I don’t like it cause-

    -Gravity Falls feels like a 9:30 show
    - 7 is too early for GLC
    - MBAV has nothing in common with the show before or after it
    - It feels weird for an animated show to kick off the night on Friday
    - its weird to go from animated-live action- animated on Friday

  • Jon23812

    @Disney rocks, thanks for your points. I’m now going to explain why I made the schedule like that.

    “Gravity Falls” does better than it’s lead in, so it doesn’t need one. “Jessie” does better than “A.N.T. Farm”, so if you put “A.N.T. Farm” between two high rated shows, it’s going to get the same ratings (give or take) as the show before and the show after. “Jessie” could be a great lead-in for “Phineas & Ferb” and that show will be a good lead-in for “Fish Hooks”.

    Now for Sunday, 7:00 PM isn’t early, that’s the time prime time starts on Sunday. “Good Luck Charlie” is a high rated show so it should do good. Since “Good Luck Charlie” and “Shake it Up” both get good ratings, airing a low rated show between them, the viewership for that show will be higher, and “Shake It Up” will be a good lead-in for “Austin & Ally”.

    You may not agree with my methods, but we all have different opinions.

  • Anthony

    I think Jessie needs to be canceled:

    *It doesn’t serve Debby Ryan justice.
    *It’s relativly, a show about nothing, but 8 year old sister is bored by it. A teen “nanny” watching “parentless” kids basically, yawn.
    *The writing is not supported by life, if a teen nanny acted like Jessie does, the kids would be in foster care and she would be in jail. And the parents would likely be dragged into court for custody/parental hearings. The kids likely going to a biological grandparent.

    I think Austin & Ally should be canceled:
    *Ross Lynch might be “cute” as girls like to say, but he can’t act in my opinion (sorry, sad truth).
    *What is the plot of this show again? A teen boy trying to make it big? Boring.
    *The character Dez acts mentally impared and the Trish girl really doesn’t help.
    *A plus, Laura Marano who plays Ally, has a chance to be the next Demi Lovato of Disney Channel.

    I think Good Luck Charlie needs to be retooled.
    *The Teddy Duncan character really can be goofy at times, in real life, not all blonde girls hold the “dumb blonde” schtick.
    *P.J. Duncan is basically mentally impared as well, I’m probably the age close to his character and I have common sense a lot more so than book sense. P.J. has neither.
    *The parents act like the kids, parents supervise, not often play into their children’s shenanigans.

    Season 1 episodes of GLC weren’t like the current episodes from season 2-present. My guess is the creator is no longer over the direction of the series/characters or either a show runner/executive producer stepped off of the show. Like Spongebob creator Stephen Hillenburg did after season 3.

    Disney needs to work on these 3 shows majorly. Fire some writers and make some cast members turn into recurring characters, especially on Jessie & Good Luck Charlie.

    GLC might be on a final season anyway, I mean Mia Talcero is growing up, the premise of this show was to watch Charlie and her world really, not her siblings’ world. With Charlie growing up, Teddy won’t need to film home movies anymore and say “… well, Good Luck, Charlie” Charlie’s memories are likely starting to form, it’d be redundant for this show to continue really.

    @Anthony

    @Chixy, Shows on Nickelodeon are aimed towards kids 6 to 11. Kids between those ages won’t be up at 9:00 PM on Sundays or Mondays.

  • James

    XII???

    Comedy Bang! Bang!???

  • Kaylie

    Here’s my thought on Disney’s scheduling.

    Friday
    8pm: Shake it Up (strong show to anchor the night)

    8:30: ANT Farm (needs more exposure before leading Fridays)

    9pm: Jessie (does well at 9)

    Saturday morning (try something new)

    9am: Phineas and Ferb (strong leader)

    9:15: Gravity Falls (new show, needs a good lead in)

    9:30: Fish Hooks (i dont know?)

    Saturday night
    8pm: Movie (usually does well & could compete with Nick’s line up)

    Sunday
    7:30: MBAV (could give GLC a viewer advantage & would air occasionally)

    8pm: Good Luck Charlie (strong at 8pm)

    8:30: Dog With a Blog (family show that would work well with GLC)

    9pm: Austin & Ally (stablilizes Dog With a Blog ratings)

  • Kaylie
