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

    How did iCarly, Big Time Rush, Austin and Ally, and Good Luck Charlie did in the ratings?

    Spongebob only does well on Saturday mornings because their is literally no competition. Not like there was when Spongebob was coming out. Regardless, Spongebob still isn’t as popular as it was a couple years ago.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Well, Spongebob still is EXTREMELY popular. As of last week, Spongebob is the most talked-about show on Tv. 4 million viewers on a rerun is Beast.

    Still pumped for the all new, 1Hr Kung Fu Panda special. Kung Fu Panda Enter The Dragon. Looks awesome. Monday November 12, 2012.
