    WTF is Gravity Falls? NO new episodes for 2 months now!!

    This movie sucked. Thank God it wasn’t in movies. I was dissapointed espically coming from Disney. Disney please stick to hand drawn movies && better themes.

    I expected that type of movie to come from Nick

    I swear to god if Disney wins the week off a Disney Jr Movie, I’m gonna flip. Nick didn’t air any new iCarly this week so their numbers will drop slightly. Fortunately, there was a new Spongebob, and given the recent ratings spike, probably scored around 5 million viewers.

    Next week has Nick all over it. Marvin Marvin premieres, Victorious returns, new TMNT and KFP, and most of all iGoodbye is airing. Unfortunately, Nick has no significant schedule change other than reducing the PreK block for (sigh), more Spongebob.

    Marvin Marvin should have been moved to Friday @ 9PM Followed by a new Victorious @ 9:30PM, and I’d air an iGoodbye Repeat On Saturday @8PM Followed by a repeat of the new Victorious episode @ 9PM

    Anyway..I hated this movie. Why were Disney and Nick airing kiddie premieres this week (Barbie, Sofia)

    Nickelodeon has not been promoting iGoodbye that much, all they are focused on is Marvin Marvin. iGoodbye could go certainly any way.. but really.. A huge spongebob marathon leading into a 3 hour iCarly Marathon? This shows Nickelodeon has doubts about iGoodbye’s ratings… this week will be very interesting.

    P.S. ANT Farm will be crushed Friday Night ;)

    or maybe this huge spongebob marathon lead in thingy could help iGoodbye’s ratings..?

  • Melvin

    Come on people leave a kids show alone you are beginning to sound like really sad people

    It’s possible that the marathon lead in good help iGoodbye’s ratings.

    It’s possible that the marathon lead in could (might) help iGoodbye’s ratings.
