    Ant Farm needs help with their ratings.

    @Kaylie, I think they should air ANT Farm after SIU or GLC to boost ratings for a few weeks, and put it back on it’s regular time slot, to see if the show can hold up.

  • Kaylie

    I agree.

  • Migrane

    ANT Farm just doesn’t work its their worst comedy, Disney needs to let it go.

  • Jared

    I agree..no matter where they schedule ANT FARM..it just doesn’t have the same following as Disney’s other series. If ANT FARMs ratings are based solely on its lead in..its time to let it go and move onto something bigger and better.

    The problem with Ant Farm is twofold:

    1. The 8pm timeslot has always been trouble for Disney. They tried Jessie there and it’s ratings weren’t great. I’m not sure why they moved Ant farm to 8 except to make room for Gravity Falls.
    2. Disney is not promoting Ant Farm at all. They promote and push the heck out of Jessie during the week and on other stations, but it seems as if they have all but forgotten about Ant Farm. If they would push this show like they do Jessie, I’m sure the ratings would spike then level off.

    Please remember that Ant Farm has been the number 1 show on cable with tweens before. It has beaten Jessie as well as Phineas and Ferb before, with ratings close to 5 million (Total household). I think it will return as people adjust to the new time slot and if Disney promotes it.

    yes the ratings has not been god, but i dont think it should be cancelled because its literally just because of the time slot

  • melvin

    if ant farm will be the first show to get cancelled it be removed from season 3 i think disney will remove it after the standard 3 season, however with dog with a blog coming (and i think it will get views because it sounds like a classic family show) and wonder over yonder it might make ant farm seem pointless in my view, and wonder is a animation so it will probably be on a friday replacing ant farm maybe
