    Good for Haven. Dont think good enough for renewel. So many low rated shows on syfy its hard to know.

  • Jon23812

    Glad Gravity Falls did well. I hope Disney now knows that if you air a night of low-rated shows, and put Gravity Falls at 9:30 the ratings won’t be as good as it could have beem.

  • amadeus

    great ratings for jessie and gravity falls. Ant farm still needs help.

  • Jon23812

    Jessie’s ratings were also good. A.N.T. Farm, same old, same old.

  • amadeus

    @Jon 23812 I agree with you GF should have the 9pm time slot while phineas and ferb and fish hooks could premiere episodes after it. So an excellent lead-in for both series

  • Twist Of Fate

    HA! I knew it. For weeks Disney’s Friday Block has bombed in the ratings without Jessie. Now Jessie’s back and Disney has a successful few shows again.

    Well, with Jessie back it’s gonna be a close battle for total day. I was right about my Disney predictions. So, here’s my Nickelodeon predictions:

    iShock America: Heavily tweeted and discused, 3.9 – 5.3 million viewers
    SpongeBob On Tour- Well, it’s SpongeBob so 4.0 – 5.6 million viewers
    TMNT- Promotion was bad, 3.1 – 3.7 million viewers

  • Jay

    FINALLY! My entire weekend has been nothing but anticipating the ratings for Gravity Falls’ “Summerween”! Yes I have no life, but seriously that episode was the best of the series thus far!

    So glad the ratings and viewers have gone up! The best show on Disney!!

  • Issac

    Kind of sad when Jessie is the pinnacle of Disney’s programming block. Without it everything on Friday would sink and die.

  • Nick

    Just need MBAV numbers.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    What can Disney do with ANT Farm? Really..what can they do?

  • Twist Of Fate

    iShock America was pretty funny. Gibby’s pants malfunction was expected, but the no underwear was suprising. Nickelodeon seems to have forgotten iCarly is a kids’ show.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Spongebob on Tour wont affect the Total day #’s due to it airing on Monday. Tmnt probably got 3 million viewers, and it will continue to decline. Just another show will suffer from Nickelodeons horrible promotion..

    Awesome for Gravity Falls. Looks like Disney is slow on renewing animated series..

  • cimmer

    Yay Dead Files.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Twist of Fate
    I loved it. I’d say hmm… probably 5 million? A lot of Fallon fans tuned in so…

  • Jon23812

    @Twist of Fate, iCarly is more of a teen show than it is a kid’s show.

  • Jared

    @ Nathan

    Cancel it?..but we know that’s not gonna happen considering its just been renewed.

  • Jared

    Happy to see Ghost Adventures finally break 1 million total viewers. Its definitely a show I watch consistently.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nathan Hopefully not, Korra managed to crank out amazing ratings even with terrible promotion.

    Nickelodeon has finally added a morning Gotta See Saturdays block starting this Saturday:

    11:00- TMNT
    11:30- Kung Fu Panda
    12:00- Tuff Puppy
    12:30- Robot And Monster
    1:00- Power Rangers

    8:00- iCarly
    8:30- Victorious
    9:00- Big Time Rush
    9:30- How To Rock

    Finally, it’s been over 4 months since a new Tuff Puppy has aired.

  • Ram510

    What happened to Smackdown, it’s dying

  • Mmmmm

    Wow…thanks to fight night….ultimate fighter jump to all new high a mil! congrats it needs it….having 900-700ks viewers is terrible.
    I want to know how monsters inside me did?
