  • disney rocks

    Go Disney! That’s good for all shows!

    Series high for Gravity Falls!

  • disney rocks

    Disney- 17 entries
    Nick- 0 entries

    Go Disney!

  • RHONJd

    Go Disney Channel! Good numbers for Jessie. I love that Fish Hooks is growing. And series highs for Gravity Falls! And I expected mediocre numbers for ANT Farm, considering it was available on DISNEYCHANNEL.com and the Watch Disney Channel app two days before it aired.

  • Oliver

    King of the Hill at 5.30am got 0.5? Weird.

    Quirk of the sampling, I suspect.

  • disney rocks

    Note- BTR numbers for July 9, 2012 at 7:30PM will likely be posted on Nick and More.com by the end of July, so even if its super late, we will likely eventually get them!

  • Oliver

    Repeats of Parks and Recreation at 8:30pm on Thursday on NBC get the same ratings as repeats if King of the Hill at 5:30am on Friday on Adult Swim.

    That’s crazy.

  • RHONJd

    Scared for Good Luck Charlie though. It had a tough time slot, and was also available two days early on Disney’s website and the watch Disney app. I guess we’ll see tomorrow.

  • Jon23812

    “Jessie” and “Gravity Falls” did well. I hope “A.N.T. Farm” will soon get better ratings, and how did “Fish Hooks” beat “A.N.T. Farm”?

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Disney Rocks You seriously need to stop that “entrie” thing. It’s starting to get annoying. We don’t need to know that disney had 17 entries. I think most of us are capable of making a mental note of disney having 17 entries. & It’s wrong of you to even compare the two networks when clearly nick wont be in any of the daily cable ratings, for the next few days, maybe even weeks, maybe even months. Who knows?

  • RHONJd

    Yay for Jessie! It was #1 on all of cable for the day!

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Btw, what’s wrong with the way the comments post? It’s like me pressing the enter button before typing.

  • SJ

    Seriously, what is with this “war” between Nick and Disney fans? How old are you people?!

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @SJ Sometimes I do ask myself that question. Why am I arguing/trying to start an argument with people over kids networks, lol.

  • RHONJd

    For all those who have been wondering, @SonoftheBronx posted Big Time Rush ratings from Monday.

    Big Time Rush (Nickelodeon) 2.089 million viewers. 0.3 A 18-49

  • Kissan

    Congrats to Tyler Perry bein #1 show of the night!!! Jessie, A.N.T Farm, Gravity Falls and Fish Hooks also did good too.

  • BJH

    Common Law had a slight upturn in viewers, but even with demo. Why does it feel like this (fantastic/funny) show is being abandoned by USA? It’s now being paired with SVU reruns. For a 10pm show, they should up the ante a little. Most of the time, I feel like it’s a 9pm show. They should pair it with Covert Affairs. Too bad it’s not on TNT, it would be a great partner for Rizzoli & Iles.

  • Jon23812

    Moving Big Time Rush to Mondays was a bad idea.

  • Korra FTW

    @ SJ, it seems like mostly Disney fans who are acting childish. Nick fans like Nathan are always calm about it. The only thing I care about on Nick is The Legend of Korra, which is such a good show for anyone of any age. (The finale had great adult ratings.) Pretty much the rest of the shows on Disney and Nick these days are sad.

    I don’t understand why Disney fans care so much about having so many entries. Obviously Nickelodeon is going to have lower ratings, and Disney is going to have higher ratings since DirecTV dropped Viacom. That’s 20 million viewers. Also people tuning into Nick are directed to Disney.

  • Jon23812

    @Korra FTW, actually Viacom dropped DirecTV, but yeah, the ratings of Nickelodeon will be lower obviously.

  • RJ

    I never realized how many kids were on this website.
