  • Twist Of Fate

    NO NO NO NO! Good promotion, good timeslot, good network, iGoodbye should have scored at least 7 million viewers. Oh, and Trevor, don’t make excuses for Ant Farm. Ant Farm doesn’t bring in viewers when it’s not against other shows, noone likes that show.

  • Martin

    Well 2.4 million people watched it more than the finale of icarly

  • Nathan

    Well my prediction was correct..

  • Nathan

    Well It’s not ant farms fault it got crushed, this episode was originally scheduled to air Saturday (NOV 24) But Nick moved it back a day. Well at least it did slightly better than Hannah Montanna.

  • Blackmist100

    Ew, A.N.T. Farm’s viewers are not pretty, and they deserve such low viewers because it’s such a bad show.

    I agree with the many people that said Nickelodeon is terrible at scheduling. They should learn from Disney to air 2-3 episodes a month of each series, not air an episode then take a 6-month vacation. No. That’s not the way to go if they’re seeking for viewers.

  • Nathan

    No press release from Nickelodeon? Are they dissapointed..?
    Ant Farm is a horrible show! And I agree…. it does make BTR look like a hit.
    This year has probably been Nickelodeon’s worst year.. in terms of promotion. I mean what the heck is going on in their headquarters..?

  • B plus

    Nathan, I really think you should apply for a job to work at Nickeledon. I’m sure you will do well. :)

  • Nathan

    Oops My mistake.. Hannah actually performed better than iCarly

  • Nathan

    @B plus
    Is that sarcasm? ;)
    Well if it isn’t… thanks! I actually do want to work for Nickelodeon one day.. somewhere in the promotion/scheduling department.

  • BL

    Actually, Hannah had 6.2 million viewers before the Live + 7 ratings.
    Before Live + 7

    After Live + 7

    I assume iCarly was DVR’d, so it might get in the 7 million range thanks to Live + 7 (unless Nick doesn’t do a press release). Either way, iCarly did well considering the last two seasons’ ratings went downhill implying due to the Seddie plot.

  • B plus

    @Nathan

    No way I am sarcastic. Nathan, you always give strong points and talk about how Nickelodeon doesn’t promote a show and you predict that it won’t get the best ratings for that particular week (For example, you said that the lack of promotion for iShock America was the reason why iCarly underperformed that week despite having the presence of Jimmy Fallon and that Nick concentrated way too much on WWDOP, where Nick could’ve aired iShock America a week early and move How to Rock on another day). I think you should be a promotion manager. You would do so well in it, my friend!

  • Chris

    Why does a show like iCarly NEED a finale? When did it become necessary for EVERY show to have a final episode that ‘finishes the story’, when so many don’t have any story to finish? iCarly was a purely episodic sitcom on Nick. It didn’t need any damn finale. Just make another half hour episode, and make it as funny as possible, and leave everything as it was.

    I blame The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Before that, sitcoms didn’t have finales. Now they just take whatever the premise of the show is and wreck it. That’s become a tradition or something. Thank God they didn’t get to do that to The Honeymooners. Oh wait, they did–in the crappy color episodes filmed in Miami. ::sigh::

  • Nathan

    @Chris
    Well I’m pretty sure most people would like to see closure when watching a final episode of a series…

    @B plus
    :) Thanks! The promotion manager @ Nick must be on crack. I mean it really shocked me when the Viacom president blamed Nickelodeon’s ratings decline on Netflix.. when the answer was simple.. they have terrible promotion skills… For example, I remember when an iCarly promo wasn’t released until a Thursday evening..(New episodes aired on Saturdays) I really love the network, but sometimes their lack of promotion disgusts me. Hopefully, Nickelodeon can start fresh next year…and when I mean fresh I mean less spongebob, more promotion, better scheduling, and more original ideas….

  • Twist Of Fate

    Hey, I just noticed at 7:30 Pm iCarly scored 3.4 million viewers. Nick is finally promoting decently (Gotta See Saturday Mornings aren’t promoted at ALL). Unfortunately, scheduling still SUCKS. It’s A SpongeBob Christmas is airing the Thursday after A Fairly Odd Christmas. I’m starting to think Nick is teasing the fans with scheduling changes.

    A Fairly Odd Christmas- 4.0 – 5.1 million viewers
    It’s A SpongeBob Christmas – 3.8 – 4.7 million viewers

  • Jon23812

    The first SpongeBob Christmas Special aired December 6, 2000, a Wednesday. Nick probably think they can can anything any day now. That only works in 2000, now in 2012, they should only be airing stuff on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

  • Nathan

    Still waiting for my Korra/TMTNT pair on Friday nights.. now that will drive ratings through the roof and crush Disney’s Friday night programming.

  • Nate

    Does anybody know if Victorious will be getting a 1 hour series finale?

  • Jon23812

    A Fairly Odd Christmas: 2.7 – 3.4
    It’s A SpongeBob Christmas: 2.2 – 2.8 (It already aired on CBS)
    Jessie: 3.0 – 3.4
    Phineas & Ferb: 2.9 – 3.3
    Fish Hooks: 2.3 – 2.6
    Victorious: 3.4 – 3.9
    Marvin, Marvin: 1.5 – 1.8
    How to Rock: 1.9 – 2.1

  • B plus

    @Nate

    As far as I know, no. The cast has moved on from some sources I heard. :( However, I could be wrong.

    @Nick

    If you have the ratings for Victorious, Dog with a Blog, Marvin Marvin, Dexter, and Homeland, please post them if possible
