    It was thanksgiving so the drop for AHS was expected. It will easily rebound this week. The show keeps getting better!

  • iCarly

    Friday Cable Ratings Please!! thanks.

  • Oliver

    Yay, the TV ratings catchup begins

  • B plus

    Sorry to go off topic:

    iCarly’s final episode was the most popular trending topic worldwide in its premiere night unlike the ANT Farm Special.

    I firmly believe iCarly easily brought in more viewers than ANT Farm!

  • rob60990

    Max wasn’t the 1st 2nd or 3rd comment? LMAO.

    Not surprised by the huge drop for AHS as it was Thanksgiving Even and the show’s younger skewing audience wasn’t going to stay home.

  • B plus

    I hope AHS will rebound next week as the most recent episode was one of their better ones this season.

  • Nathan

    I don’t think Fridays cable ratings are released today..? I think it’s tomorrow, correct me if I’m wrong.

    “I don’t think Fridays cable ratings are released today..? I think it’s tomorrow, correct me if I’m wrong.”

    Normally, the Friday cable ratings are posted on Monday, but because of the holiday that’s not likely to be the case.

  • omabin

    AHS will rebound next week. This season is amazing, wayyyy better than the last one IMO!

  • jay

    Max?

  • Nathan

    @Bill
    Thanks!

  • mrnickelodeonrewind3

    Wow spongebob the movie got 3.8 million views. So close to 4 million.(: Go spongebob.!

    There is no freaking way that any farm will beat icarly. There is just no possible way. If it does then I’ll be so so shocked.! lol

    @Bill
    So does that mean Friday cable ratings will be posted on Wednesday.?

  • B plus

    @mrnickelodeonrewind3

    I agree. Ant Farm doesn’t do well when it does not have Jessie as it’s lead-in.

    I believe the cable ratings for Friday will come tomorrow basing on the last two years. The Victorious special: Freak the Freak Out’s ratings came out the Tuesday after its airing, which like the last episode of iCarly aired on Black Friday back in 2010.

  • Steve

    Why do the Nielsens post primetime ratings for network TV the next day every day, but don’t do the same for cable, particularly on weekends and holidays?

    Do you suppose it’s because the Nielsens still treat cable as a second-class citizen?

  • Bee

    it’s strange that last year, AHS only fell 0.2 for thanksgiving eve. this year, it fell 0.7. but in any case, great episode and hopefully the ratings get back to normal. tho this 0.9 has me worried as it might hurt the rest of the season, which is really starting to take shape.

  • Twist Of Fate

    The Thursday/Friday cable ratings will be released tomorrow afternoon, along with the regular Tuesday info. The Monday cable ratings will be released on Wednesday. It will all return to normal by Thursday afternoon.

    The SpongeBob movie did great. It’s been aired a million times a still nearly scored 4 million viewers. iGoodbye did very well. #icarlymemories was the #1 trend worldwide for 10 Hrs. Creddie, Freddie, Sam, and Gibby also trended nation or worldwide all night, too. It’s also the #4 download for TV Shows on all of iTunes (Ant Farm is #81), so like I said iGoodbye will score very highly.

  • B plus

    How much do you predict for iCarly’s Finale, Twist of Fate? I’m predicting at least 7.5 million viewers.

    #81 for Ant Farm? Disney made a huge mistake and should’ve put it with Austin and Ally Special Crossover with Jessie on December 7.

  • Twist Of Fate

    My prediction for iGoodbye is somewhere between 7 – 13 million viewers because of all the trends. All of my predictions:

    iGoodbye – 7-13 million viewers
    Marvin Marvin – 2.6 – 3.1 ( Didn’t Trend )
    Victorious – 2.8 – 3.3 million viewers ( Also Didn’t Trend )
    Ant Farm – 2.4 – 3.3 million viewers
    A Fairly Odd Christmas – 4.0 – 5.2 million viewers
    AA/Jessie – 5.8 – 7.0 million viewers

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nathan @B-Plus
    Are either of you WWE fans, and if so, who’s your favorite wrestler.

  • Shepherd

    Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Duck Dynasty were all repeats last week. That’s how my dvr listed them anyway.
