    I don’t get it. What did Nickelodeon do differently? What did Nick do to suddenly bring its audience back? Does anyone know?

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Ryan Well, they started airing episodes of Drake and Josh from 7 – 8 PM. They also decided to bring back Full House, Even though its (Nan) If you look at the Friday cable ratings, they also started airing 1 hour icarly specialswhich are scoring 2mil + (along with Victorious episodes)
