    @Ray, agree with Nathan, all of your guesses are too low. The only ones that seem realistic are Regular Show, Fish Hooks, and Austin & Ally.

  • Fake Me Out

    So sad to see Haven so low. I hope if they get a 4th season they put it back to a summer schedule where it seemed to be doing better, or failing that, it keeps being produced here in Canada and shopped around to another network. [sigh]

  • Lu

    I think this is the lowest of Haven since season 1, but I think it has to do with airing in the fall and all other fall shows premiering last Friday. Hopefully it will go up to 0.4 next Friday because I really want a season 4.

  • Poweranimals

    Thanks Nick. What about Code 9?

  • Ios

    I have notice that without JESSIE Disney channel Relly flops on friday

  • Ios

    I’ve notice that no country is planning to show code 9 because it looks like it will be cancelled soon, I live in the UK, ANSI think prank stars is better

  • Nick

    Code 9 (8:30) – Disney
    1.815 million viewers, #7; 0.327 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #16

  • MELVIN

    IN MY VIEW I THINK THAT ANT FARM SHOULD NOT BE CANCELLED BECAUSE THESE SHOWS ARE LOW AS WELL, WITHOUT JESSIE NO SHOWS DO WELL, AND I THINK THAT THERE ARE TWO SHOWS PUSHING DISNEY BACK AND THAT’S FISH HOOKS AND CODE 9, FISH HOOKS IS BECOMING REALLY IMMATURE LIKE SPONGEBOB AFTER SEASON 4, AND CODE 9 IS A RIP OFF OF PRANKSTARS AND PUNK’ED, DISNEY ANIMATIONS SHOULD BE ON A SATURDAY, BUT EVERYONE IS GOING TO COMPLAIN THAT IT IS COPYING NICKELODEON WITH THEIR SATURDAYS

  • Rodrigo

    Nick: Do you have Boss’ numbers?

  • redlock

    @Nick …and ”Strike Back” would be nice too.

    Thanks!
