There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

  • BJ

    Very strong for Victorious. Though the ratings haven’t been as good as it was in the first two seasons, it’s a lot better than most Nick shows.

    If somebody has the ratings for Big Time Rush, please post them.

  • Nick

    Good for Perception.

  • DeDee

    Victorious is past even iCarly.

  • Jon23812

    I hope Nick decides to uncancel Victorious.

  • Poweranimals

    Can someone post the numbers for BTR and How to Rock?

  • BJ


    Victorious (Nickelodeon)
    -8 PM: 3.597 million viewers, 0.67 A18-49

    Big Time Rush (Nickelodeon)
    -8:30 PM: 2.894 million viewers, 0.45 A18-49

    While a season high for BTR, I expected more for it.

  • Twist Of Fate 2.0

    Wow, I expected that from Victorious because it was new, but a Spongebob rerun virtually tied with Good Luck Charlie, AWESOME! Just a few days till TMNT premieres with expected big numbers. BOOYAKASHA!

  • Nathan (NR2012)


  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Nickelodeon needs to take HTR off their lineup, It’s honestly, a waste. Replace it with an iCarly repeat or maybe a You gotta see this new episode?

    Victorious is also the HIGHEST RATED SHOW of the weekend for all of Nick & Disney. (Dan Tweeted it, Nickelodeon retweeted it) It was also #1 on itunes. Hope we can keep that momentum Nick buddies. :)

  • Kaylie

    Victorious did really well. Very happy for Nick. Really happy for Good Luck Charlie as well. Two of THE BEST CHILDRENS SITCOMS TODAY.

  • tobias

    well done nick i cant wait for tmnt and ishock america!

  • Nikki

    Nickelodeon really needs to rethink not renewing Victorious. It got the highest ratings for it’s “Gotta See Saturday” night and even higher ratings than Disney! They’ll feel dumb soon..

  • disney rocks

    Go GLC and Victorious! Top two shows on Disney/Nick!

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Um lol..

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Nickelodeon really can’t renew Victorious because 1. Sam & Cat, is currently in production, 2, Nickelodeon would have to pay Ariana MORE for her new show, plus Victorious, plus royalty checks etc.. I’m pretty sure Victoria didn’t even want to do a fourth season. It was pretty obvious. But Nickelodeon has turned her into a star so, it really doesn’t matter anymore.

    Tmnt could go any way. With the whole Jason Biggs, S***, Some parents wont allow their kids to watch the show (which is wayy too over protective) But hey, maybe it will surprise us all. iShock America needs to be promoted more.

  • Jon23812

    @Nathan, Dan said on his blog that the actors were upset that a fourth season wasn’t renewed, so I’m pretty sure Victoria did want to do another season. And about “Sam & Cat”, they didn’t greenlight it, it’s just a test pilot, and if Nickelodoen likes it, they will then greenlight it.

  • Epicfail037

    As one who’s been an avid fan of Victorious since the beginning, I honestly have to say that i’m not too upset about it ending, because i’d rather see a show I enjoy end while it’s still going good and people enjoy it, as opposed to having it drag on for a while and run ragged, like some people think iCarly has. (no offense to iCarly fans, not that I think that though)

    But i’m glad to see it doing decently again. Maybe because no serious sports got in its way?

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    I don’t know, I really don’t think Victoria wanted to do another season, in all her interviews she hinting that she wants to basically just leave nickelodeon, but maybe your right. I know they didn’t greenlight Sam & Cat, I hope they do though.

    I agree. Even though is my favorite show, i’m not sad to see it go, However, I’m sad to hear that my favorite show isn’t getting a proper ending. I think Dan should start making hour long season finales for his new shows, just in case Nickelodeon pulls something like this again.

  • Twist Of Fate 2.0

    Well, Nickandmore just released their opinion on TMNT 2012, and by the way they put it, it’s gonna be awesome.

    According to them, this may be Nickelodeon’s newest big hit. It’s about time, Nickelodeon hasn’t come up with a big hit since Tuff Puppy.

    So even in ‘The Chase* NASCAR isn’t even eclipsing WWE as it did one or twice earlier this season. It just comes to show that NASCAR needs more wrecks!!!
