    Yay Disney channel

  • disney rocks

    Disney did great! 2 of the three entries are reruns, weird. There originals did very well though.

    Also, does anyone have the ratings for the One Direction Concert Special, Saturday at 8 on NICK?

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @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?

    ^ Reply to your comment on Friday Cable Ratings; I think nickelodeon is trying to put that whole hour as a “game show hour”. But I don’t seem how that will work since they didn’t even promote that new game show.

  • Ted

    Longmire is awesome, I love this show, so glad it got picked up for a second season.

  • disney rocks

    i’m curious to know how the one direction concert special did

  • Kaylie

    Shake it Up is the only premiere episode that made it on this list. Another reason why Disney should let it anchor their Fridays. ANT Farm was their only show in the 2’s. Thats a little embarassing.

  • Chris

    As Chris Berman says, “Back back back back…GONE!!!”

  • disney rocks

    Yeah, Shake It Up should be transported to Fridays, A.N.T Farm to 8:30, Jessie to Sunday

  • RHONJd

    If Disney was smart, they would put a show on Sunday @ 9 pm.

  • disney rocks

    @RHONJd- i agree

  • Jon23812

    @ROHNJd, in the summer it would be good, but during the school days, that would be bad.
