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

    Well done disney

  • Poweranimals

    I remember when DCOMs used to rank #1 or #2 in these things.


    Again… no iCarly nor Victorious… Bummer!
    So, what are the ratings for those two + “How to Rock” from Saturday? :)

  • Jon23812

    Saturday Cable ratings will be posted later this evening on futoncritic.

  • BL

    That’s pretty good for iCarly and even did slightly more in viewers than a special. Good for Victorious and Big Time Rush but as usual bad for How to Rock. I think Victorious should get a proper series finale.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    I agree. If it was 2009, this would have been bad for icarly but considering its declining ratings, this is amazing. Victorious did awesome too, so did BTR. How to Rock needs to get off that lineup.

    iGet Banned was hilarious and Opposite Date was awesome. GLC, and Austin & Ally were good too. SIU… HORRIBLE!

  • Twist Of Fate

    Still, no numbers fot Tuff Puppy, TMNT, Kung Fu Panda, or Robot And Monster. DANG! Well, iCarly’s ratings seem to actually have gone up. I had a feeling iShock America was a promotion problem. Victorious is still Nick’s #1. BTR and HTR’s numbers still suck.
