    Disney did great. Sucks that Kardashians are here.

  • Mile E.

    OK guys and gals…No NICK bashing this week.
    Can’t we all just get along?

  • Sharon

    Major Crimes yeeeaaah that’s it!

  • Greg

    Go Gravity Falls! Maybe Nick will go back to making Nicktoons like in the 90’s and get rid of these generic, cheesy music/being famous sitcoms directed a tween girls. Disney’s starting to do that and with great results. More animated shows to come in 2013!

  • SJ

    So if it’s week ending 26th August that would be the ratings for Major Crimes episode 1×02 not the most recent episode 1×03, correct?

  • SJ

    Nevermind I found the latest episode’s ratings, woo! lets hope they top week ending 2nd of September too :)

  • Kenny

    Gravity Falls! Love that show. Something on Disney Channel that doesn’t make me hate myself.

  • jamie

    Gravity Falls is one ugly looking cartoon but I like the other shows on Disney channel.

  • Martine

    Gravity falls? How can anyone possibly watch that show? Its a visual and intellectual insult. I guess if people can watch Storage Wars they will literally watch anything.

  • jamie

    Let’s hope Nick stops airing Spongebob all the time now. No more than four or five airings a day, alright Nick?
