    Great for TRUE BLOOD and DALLAS!

  • Dennis

    meh….Dallas is doing so..so

  • Miles

    No Disney and Nick just squeaked in…Sheesh!

  • disney rocks

    Weird to see Disney with zero entries, probably cause they had bad scheduling/promotion for the friday shows, and the good rated Sundays shows (GLC, SIU) did not air new episodes

  • Korra FTW

    Nick reruns beat out Disney new episodes…Lol.

    Nick: 3
    Disney: nada

  • Robert

    I’m sure Dallas was down due to airing on 4th of July (not only on the holiday but also during the 9-10 pm hour, when most cities’ firework displays are happening).

  • Korra FTW

    @ disney rocks, it’s not that weird. Disney has to rely on new episodes of pretty awful shows that somehow get ok ratings. Nick’s shows are good enough to get high ratings even on re runs. Spongebob beat out new episodes of Disney shows. Poor promotion can be an issue, but when new episodes of The Legend of Korra aired, Nick had horrible promotion and gave it an absolutely awful time slot, and Korra still managed to get amazing ratings.

  • Epicfail037

    @Korra FTW: How is 11 AM a bad time slot? It did a lot better than the 8 PM stuff was doing for a while…

  • Kaylie

    @Korra FTW… Ofcourse. Disney relies on all of their shows (which are not awful), not just 1 or 2 shows that do ok on Nick. Also, Disney still topped total day with no entries into the top 25, so please save your breath.

  • JJ

    Nothing on Disney hit 3 million, but Spongebob did 3 times. The Fairly Odd Parents, Figure It Out, and BTR alone beat everything except Gravity Falls on Disney. How Did Disney win. That has to be a screw up.

  • Roy hazelrigg

    Anger Management is terrible. Loved Charlie in Two and a Half Men.

  • Jon23812

    @Epicfail037, If Nickelodeon puts an animation block on Fridays, and promotes them very well it could do better than the Saturday morning time slot.

    @Korra FTW, Disney only has one bad show, 3 WONDERFUL shows, and the rest are great.

  • JJ

    I Have The Numbers That SHOW Nickelodeon Won
    Gravity Falls: 2.954
    Ant Farm: 2.808
    Fish Hooks: 2.785
    Phineas and Ferb: 2.668
    MBaV: 2.422

    Spongebob: 3.154
    The Fairly Odd, Parents: 2.866
    BTR: 2.936
    Figure It Out: 2.936
    Victorious: 2.539

  • JJ

    My bad Figure It Out got 2.831

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Korra actually does have a poor time slot if you think about it. I mean who wakes up @ 11 AM ON a saturday morning? Most people in korra’s demo are asleep @ 11 AM. Moving it to Fridays @ 8 would crush ANT, and help Nick win Fridays, something that would really help them with their decreasing total day #’s.

  • Korra FTW

    Nathan is correct. For me it’s 10 AM. People like to sleep in. The reason Korra still beat other shows that aired at 8 PM is because Korra is such a phenomenal show. It’s such a good show that people still get up early for it. I know there are many many many people who missed a lot of the episodes though because they overslept or aren’t die-hard fans. Korra’s current airtime did affect the ratings.

    I also agree with Nathan that Korra would crush ANT Farm.

    @ Kaylie, my point was that Disney relies on NEW episodes, then when those new episodes air again they don’t do very well. Nickelodeon’s shows do great on both new episodes and re runs.

  • disney rocks

    @KorraFTW, only Spongebob does great on reruns, not all Nick shows. And Disney shows have also performed well in reruns, just not as much as Spongebob. The only other show that regularly does well in reruns on Nick is TFOP. 1-hour specials of Victorious also.

  • JJ

    @disney rocks
    Figure It Out does well on reruns too. And so does iCarly, check Tuesday Cable Ratings

  • Kayla Rae

    Dallas rocks!!!

  • Lisa

    Falling Skies, Dallas, The Closer, Longmire
    Not necessarily in that order
