    @I luv nickelodeon
    You gotta see this got 2.671 or 2.7 million views for a special preview.!! It did pretty good.(:

  • Kaylie

    Alot of people have gotten over Fred. He’s not as popular anymore & his show bombed. I don’t think it’ll be over 4 million viewers mainly because Nick doesnt deliver when it comes to original movies. Besides, I knew Spongebob wasn’t going to do as well as everyone expected because it’s gonna be hard to come back after no Nickelodeon on Viacom.

    I doubt Phineas and Ferb would see lows because its on Thursday. The highest I would expect from Phineas and Ferb would be 5 million viewers; lowest 3.5 million viewers.

  • RHONJd

    My estimated Disney Channel Thursday night of premieres:

    7:30 My Babysitter’s a Vampire: 2.6 million viewers
    8:00 Code 9 (series premiere) : 3.2 million viewers
    8:30 Jessie: 3.5 million viewers
    9:00 Phineas and Ferb: 3.9 million viewers

    What is YOUR Thursday premiere estimations??

  • Jon23812

    @ROHNJd, here’s mine

    My Babysitter’s a Vampire – 3.0 million viewers
    Code 9 – 2.2 million viewers
    Jessie – 3.3 million viewers
    Phineas & Ferb – 3.5 million viewers

    I originally perdicted Phineas & Ferb to have 4.9 million, but I just noticed Disney isn’t promoting their Thursday line-up, they’re only promoting “Code 9″ which I bet will have low ratings, since it’s just the same thing as “PrankStars” which was cancelled after 4 episodes.

  • RHONJd

    Any more estimations for Disney Channel’s THURSDAY premiere line up, including a new Jessie, MBAV, special part 1 Phineas and Ferb, and Code 9 premiere.

    What is your estimations?

  • Cody

    @RHONJd, here is mine (:

    My Babysitter’s a Vampire- 2.8 million
    Code 9- 2.3 million
    Jessie- 3.2 million
    Phineas & Ferb- 3.4 million

    If Code 9 is like pranksters i am not watching it..

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    My Babysitter’s a Vampire- 2.8 million
    Code 9- 2.6 – 2.8 million
    Jessie- 3.3 million
    Phineas & Ferb- 3.6 million

    Overall it will be an “okay” night for disney; Code 9 will continue to drop; Jessie won’t be that high because it has released on the disney app, while P&F Will score 3.6 viewers, if not 4 million.

  • RHONJd

    I agree with all of you, Code 9 will have a short stay on Disney Channel. The series premiere will be low for sure.

  • RHONJd

    Fred 3 (Saturday), Good Luck Charlie (Sunday), and Shake it Up (Sunday), will probably be lower than normal due to Olympics.

  • truth

    There’s no doubt it’s going to take some time for Viacom to recover from the DirecTV fight, if they recover at all. The Spongebob numbers aren’t bad, considering where the network was a week ago.

    Phineas & Ferb should get 4-5 million viewers. Less would be a disappointment.

  • RHONJd

    HEY! Can somebody PLEASE fix the “viewers in million’s” category for ANT Farm. It is this week’s episode “AmusemANT Park” it says the episode only got 2.4 million viewers, when we all know it got 3.4 million viewers. PLEASE SOMEBODY EDIT, AND FIX THIS MASSACRE!!

  • RHONJd

    I fixed it, but they keep saying it 2.4 million viewers. PLEASE FIX IT. THANKS :)

  • Jon23812

    @RHONJd, That’s not the 8PM broadcast of A.N.T. Farm, that’s the 12AM rebroadcast.
