    Disney fell hard, but that was expected. Hopefully, Summer Adventure Weekend does somewhat good. And it is still Number 1!

  • RHONJd

    And Disney did well considering 4 the of July, and a low rated Friday night. Also, no new shows on Sunday.

    **This is a reply to @Disney rocks for the comment he/she posted on Sunday Cable ratings.** “@Disney Rocks Oh, you know what I meant. I didn’t literally mean nobody would watch P&F. & Calling my comment dumb or stupid, is pretty immature and hypocritical, because you’ve made dumb comments before. We don’t want to hear how disney has bla bla programs. This fighting over networks is stupid. I have my opinions, you have yours. If you can’t accept that then you shouldn’t be commenting at all. Thanks, and have a nice day.”

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Also, why is Disney #1 when nothing they aired is on the cable top 25? Just wondering..

  • Alex S.

    Disney is unstoppable!!!

    For Disney to still come out on top after a “slow” week is really impressive!

    Nick is just falling further and further behind…

  • Kaylie

    This is amazing for Disney.

  • JJ

    How Did Disney win, nothing got on the top 25, and Spongebob, FOP, Figure It Out, and BTR beat everthing on Disney except Gravity Falls

  • disney rocks

    Because Disney had many shows in the day that helped them win. They have a stable schedule. Once Sponebob goes off, so do the viewers. Just because Nick had 3 Spongebob entries in the top 25 doesn’t mean any of their other shows in the day did any good, All Disney reruns could’ve easily beat all non-spongebob nick reruns, It’s total day, not one show

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    …”Once spongebob goes off so do the viewers”. That is false. I have MANY facts to prove that spongebob is sometimes sort of a lead in for some shows. Nickelodeon’s animation block actually doesn’t need a lead in from any show. Nickelodeon just has this thing where they dont promote ANYTHING.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Turning now to Adult programming, I reall thought that SyFy would have done better last week because of Wednesday’s “Twilight Zone” marathon. The show is timeless and adults and young adults love these episodes, and when restricted to only holidays, there’s not much of a burn-out factor. After all of these years, I still see episodes that I hadn’t seen before in my 58 years.

    Now, the return of the Spongebob debate. lol

  • Korra FTW

    Will be interesting to see how Nickelodeon’s ratings do now that DirecTV dropped Viacom, which includes Nickelodeon.
