    @Kelly

    Ask for it here. There’s a few commenters who will post additional data that Bill & Robert don’t have (or when they’re asleep ;-) ).

  • Jason

    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.

  • Jared

    If Disney has to keep moving ANT FARM to different time slots..it clearly isn’t resonating with there demographic. Chyna is a star..but the show just doesn’t work.

  • Nick

    Yeah, it’s not up to Disney though if My Babysitter’s A Vampire is renewed or not. It’s up to Teletoon. Hope it get’s a third season. Doesn’t mean Disney will pick it up. Naturally, Sadie Season 1 and Season 2 aired on Disney Channel america. Season 3 wasnt picked up but still aired in Canada.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Strike Back was good again… Ol’ Scott manages to “sleep with the enemy” he ends up shooting at five minutes later… Ya gotta love the guy! :-)

  • Kelly

    @Nick

    SOMEBODY needs to find them MBAV ratings and comment here, I’m so curious I have ANT’s in my pants… get it, ANTS?!

    Poor ANT Farm, Disney is crapping on it basically and pumping up Jessie, which I think is WORSE than AF.

  • CM

    @Jason

    I was curious, what other stations have you seen Jessie promoted on?

  • One

    Okay, I’m only going to ask this once…HOW MANY F___ING NICKS ARE THERE ON THIS GODDAMN WEBSITE?! It’s very difficult to keep track of the one who actually posts the Cinemax ratings (although it seems like he doesn’t usually have them until Tuesdays anyways).

  • trevor

    Jason – I agree that AF gets treated like a cast-off. It is my kid’s favorite show and I actually think it is truly funny. Jared – I disagree – I think the show works fine – it’s tempo is just different than the other Disney shows (and that’s a good thing – at times, I swear, it almost has a Simpsons beat to it – also a good thing.)The show is wacky while Jesse is sappy. My kid likes wacky. Chyna is a star but a nice fit on the show – like the anchor of it.

  • Juan

    Love that lost girl is growing, it’s really good though I gotta catch up on the last few episodes, also love seeing supernatural and charmed on there

  • melvin

    AS I SAID BEFORE anytime ant farm and jessie are premiereing on the same night ant farm never does well, but if jessie wasnt premiereing ant farm would have done well i think.

  • melvin

    i hope gravity falls double dipper does well this week

  • 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

  • Hillbilly

    Is this coming Friday the last of Lost Girl for awhile? I think they aired 2 seasons without a break. Didn’t they pick it up from Canada?

  • Hillbilly@One

    Watch DOVN it’s the wave of the future. It will also help you with any issues you have. You know like cussing on a TV ratings site. :)

  • redlock

    @Hillbilly:
    Yes, coming Friday will be the last new episode of LOST GIRL on Syfy for some time. It’s episode #222.
    And yes, LOST GIRL is an import from Canada. It runs on Showcase there.
    Season 3 will premiere in Canada in early 2013. I do not know how fast Syfy will show it in the USA.

  • Hillbilly

    @redlock

    Thanks for the info.

  • coolioni

    I bet they will run continnuum in the Friday night slot after they run Haven in the Fall. I read they bought season 1 of continuum and that they also signed up to run season 2 of continuum. hopefuly they will run season 2 the same week as they run them in Canada. If they dont it will loose quite a few potential viewers due to illegal downloading of the show off the net.

    Also I dont think Alphas is doing good eneough to get a 3rd season . It must be a fairly costly show for the network , and I bet it needs higher ratings than its getting if it going to make any money for the network.
    SyFy has shown lately that it wont renew a series if its not making them any money.

    I’m also concerned that W13 may not get a 5 th season and that thee extra order for 7 more episodes of season 4 will be the end of the show.

    Its lost quite a few viewers over the past 2 seasons. And season 5 will definatly cost more to produce compared to seasons 1-4.

  • panda22

    Lost Girl is doing well on Fridays and the move didn’t hurt it at all. Boss….about the same, but is it enough for renewal?

  • James

    @Nick Rating of XIII and Strike Back??? Please!
