There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

    Disney-4 entries
    Nick-1 entry
    Which channel is more popular? Exactly.

  • tunechi fan

    wow i didnt think nick/disney was so serious but any nick has the better shows :)

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @RhonJd You’re a hypocrite, and immature. You know if you had said that on daily cable post, EVERYONE WOULD HAVE RAGED AT YOU. None of us, honestly, GIVE A CRAP ABOUT ENTRIES. Why don’t you do something useful with your life, instead of bragging about how disney sucks – oops! I mean how disney is more “popular”. And Nickelodoen has nearly 600,000 twitter followers, how much does disney have? Nearly 200,000. I think we ALL know which one is more popular, RHON.

  • tobias

    not to mention nickelodeon has almost 9 million facebook likes and disney channel only has 4 million

  • RHONJd

    The amount of twitter followers and Facebook likes has absolutely no correlation with which channel is more popular. And yes, you are correct, Nickelodeon does have more twitter followers and is more popular on twitter. But Disney is having better ratings. Clearly, you have your opinion, And I have mine

  • Jon23812

    The ratings actually mean nothing since they’re based on only 25,000 people, not all of the U.S. The ratings only matter to advertisers, and only Nick shows commercials. Disney Channel juat uses the ratings to see which show is more popular, they don’t make money off of them.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Rhon Clearly your opinion is stupid. Just because nick had 1 entry, doesn’t mean that Disney is automatically popular. When nick had dozens of entries, nobody was commenting on how nickelodeon is more popular, because we aren’t immature like you, and “disney rocks”

    Also, Jon is correct.

    So basically RHON, you’re an idiot. I’m not those nick fans who let you automatically win a fight, once you START something with I don’t BACK down until I WIN. Thanks.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Rhon If you weren’t being an ass about your opinion, this wouldn’t HAVE HAPPENED.

  • tobias

    @Nathan you are the coolest person on this website except for me of course .

  • RHONJd

    Nathan clearly has some psychological problems. He should get a therapist…

  • Disney vs Nick

    Nathan, you have some serious issues. No need to curse on this website. You seriously need to get a life! You really look like a fool by writing such stupid, IMMATURE comments.

  • RHONJd

    @Jon, actually, you are INCORRECT. Yes, Nick is a ad-supported channel, HOWEVER, Disney does accept selected sponsors for the channel. Therefore, Disney does make money off their shows. If Disney didn’t make money off of their shows, there would be no reason to continue the channel. If Disney didn’t make money off their shows, they would have to file bankruptcy. DISNEY MAKES TONS OF MONEY OFF OF ITS POPULAR PROGRAMING, UNLIKE NICKELODEON, MAKING MONEY JUST FROM SPONGEBOB.

  • RHONJd

    @Robert Seidman

    I am requesting that @Nathan to not be allowed to leave comments on your website! He is immature, rude, and has no facts to backup his bogus comments. He has now begun to curse in your website

  • RHONJd

    @Nathan this isn’t a game, and nobody is winning, or losing. Clearly, if you the mentality that this is one big game, than your are an immature little Nick fanboy..BYE! Hope you had a great day spending each minute on this website, GET A LIFE!

  • tobias

    yeah nathan your cool but you should chill out with the curse words

  • tobias

    sorry to break ur heart but jon is right

  • tobias

    @RHONJd
    your are a snitch

  • RHONJd

    No Tobias Jon is WRONG!

  • RHONJd

    Clearly, people on this website have nothing better to do than start fights because you don’t agree with them. I have a valuable opinion, with FACTS. Tobis, Nathan, and all you immature fight starters GET A LIFE! Got to school! Read a book! LOL

  • RHONJd

    Tobias thanks:)
