  • John A

    Lost Girl doing ok. Almost doing the same as Alphas.

  • Kelly

    @Amanda @Robert @Bill

    Does anyone have the numbers to the episode of My Babysitter’s a Vampire that aired that night? Please find/post them! Thank you!

  • brian

    Nick?? How did Strike back do…. Thanks!

  • The End

    Lost Girl 1.368 0.4

    Not bad for a show the network pays very little for. These numbers keep getting higher, go for a 1.4 million next week Nielsen people.

  • CM

    Great numbers for Jessie and some of the other Disney shows, but yikes, I think that is a season low for ANT Farm. Do you guys think that ANT Farm is a lock to be renewed for its third season? Good Luck Charlie has already been picked up for Season 4; Shake It Up is now filming Season 3; and Austin & Ally and Jessie are both filming Season 2. That leaves ANT Farm as the only Disney live action show whose next season has yet to be confirmed. I definitely hope it gets renewed!

  • Migrane

    The CW should grab Smackdown back

  • John A

    Great too a repeat of Charmed on the list.

  • Craig

    Dang man, Boss didnt make it again.. Why are people not watching this season????

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    When will disney realize that MBAV, and ANT Farm are both fails?

  • Kaylie

    ANT Farm seems to just not grow in that timeslot. I really dont know why.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Kaylie Ant Farm is a show that NEEDS a lead in. Jessie can’t lead in the show because when disney moved it to 8, it bombed. Disney should just cancel it already.

  • Jon23812

    Maybe Disney Channel just has bad luck at 8 PM, ANT Farm did good when it was on 8:30.

  • Sal

    Any ratings for the series premiere of Cheer on CMT.

  • Kelly

    MBAV is a Disney adapted show, it’s not going anywhere since Disney is getting the popularity off of it globally. It’s rates pretty good in the UK as well as here when it airs with prime time (8PM or 8:30PM).

    @Robert or @Amanda – do you have the numbers for Fridays My Babysitter’s a Vampire.

    It rates good for an adapted series w/ no continuous promotion. Disney is gonna keep it like they did with Life With Derek. As for A.N.T. Farm, I’ve noticed Disney has dropped promotions on it as well, Disney brings failure to their own shows.

    I’m curious to see how Gravity Falls would rank up against Spongebob on Nick.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    BOSS = 387,000 viewers and a 0.1 A18-49 rating.

    Sadly, our secondary source doesn’t include Cinemax or CMT, so I don’t have those numbers. And as often noted, nor does it contain any shows that don’t air in primetime (8-11p), so no My Babysitter’s a Vampire.

  • Kelly

    @Robert

    Where would I go to find the ratings for My Babysitter’s a Vampire, or any other show that doesn’t air in primetime? (MBAV airs in prime time next friday, and on sunday as well).

  • trevor

    Nathan – ANT FARM does really well for Disney – just not at 8pm – Jesse’s numbers weren’t good at 8pm either. I do agree that Ant Farm needs a lead in and should get a different time slot. However, the ratings for AF has been up and down – two weeks ago when they last aired an original the numbers were good. Then they weren’t on last week and now they return to bad numbers. But then again, I know so many kids who watch Ant Farm on Hulu and iTunes or the DVR it or watch it in repeats later in the week.

  • The End

    @Migrane

    I can’t see that happening. The Syfy channel were the highest bidders for the WWE Smackdown TV rights. It ate into the networks budget a bit but gets the viewers regardless.

  • The End

    Also Alphas and Warehouse 13 are back on tonight. Alphas needs the Nielsen viewer support so people should go watch.

  • RAYRAY

    Disney should move A.N.T Farm to Sundays behind Good Luck Charlie!
