    @Kaylie, there are 10 live action shows so they can extend Friday’s schedule, or put two of their shows on Saturday nights, and they can air the animated shows on Saturday morning.

    Disney should just dump Disney XD and transport the original series Disney Channel. Turn Disney Xd into a channel for movie and old disney series reruns. Its ridiculous how That’s So Raven isn’t repeating on any tv channel.

  • disney rocks

    I think Common Law and Fairly Legal should be renewed.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    I have mixed feelings about nick moving BTR to Monday. I mean, nick has tried to put this show everywhere. After iCarly ends, put Victorious as the anchor of Saturday night (8PM) followed by BTR, then HTR. Maybe even put Supah Ninjas @ 9:30. I also just heard that Bucket & Skinner was cancelled.

  • disney rocks

    @Nathan, Moving BTR to Monday looked like an okay decision when it had nearly 3 million, but once it barely got 2 million, it didn’t. I have a feeling BTR rating will be bouncing up and down constantly.

  • disney rocks

    @Nathan, I think Nick should put Supah Ninjas Wednesdays at 7:30, but they need to hurry up and show it, cause kids may have forgotten about it, its been off the air since January

  • disney rocks

    @Natahn, did you hear Nick is airing a Canadian game show- Splatalot- 4 days a week- at 7:30 after FIO?, Is Nick becoming a game show network?
