    See dad Run got a series high.! I think. For a repeat that’s pretty good.

    Ant farm did terrible and it shouldn’t of aired.. I do think that nick should of left icarly on the original time slot though. (Saturday Nov 24 @8pm)

    Did any of you guys like Marvin Marvin.??
    Cuz I for sure didn’t.! It was a terrible show that should of premiered on Disney not nick..

  • Trevor

    @Twist Of Fate – here’s a broom for more of your sweeping statements. True, Ant farms’ ratings are lower since they moved them to 8pm on Friday but it still does great for Disney in the kid demos. Do you know any actual children? Everyone in my son’s class LOVES the show. And Jesse’s numbers sucked last year in the 8pm slot as well.

  • mrnickelodeonrewind3

    I can’t wait for Life with boys, House of Anubis, and hopefully Sam and Cat, along with Gibby. (:

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Trevor
    Ant farm is lame and it will always be lame. Everybody I know, and kids too hate ant farm.!

  • mrnickelodeonrewind3

    @Trevor
    Even See dad run, which was a repeat on Friday got a higher rating and more views than a new one hour ant farm special.! LOL :D

    Some interesting iCarly ratings. Many of them are specials, crossover events, aired on special days, etc. But this is a list of every episode with over 6 million viewers out of the 109 episode run.
    1. iSaved Your Life – 12.4 million (2010)
    2. iFight Shelby Marx – 7.9 million (2009) – 60 minute
    3. iGot A Hot Room – 7.8 million (2010)
    4. iGo To Japan – 7.6 million (2008) – 90 minute
    4. iThink They Kissed – 7.6 million (2009)
    6. iPsycho – 7.5 million (2011) – 60 minute
    7. iOMG – 7.4 million (2011)
    8. iParty With Victorious – 7.3 million (2011) – 90 minute
    9. iDo – 6.7 million (2010)
    10. iDate A Bad Boy – 6.5 million (2009) – 60 minute
    11. iGoodbye – 6.4 million (2012) – 60 minute / series finale
    12. iLook Alike – 6.3 million (2009)
    13. iKiss – 6.0 million (2009)

    The series finale was the most watched episode since the “iParty With Victorious” 90 minute crossover special on June 11, 2011.

    The season production average was 3.23 million excluding the series finale. The series finale brought in 3.17+ million viewers over the average.

    iSaved Your Life is also the #1 telecast in Nick history.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Nick
    Could we get Saturday’s repeat #’s for the icarly series finale.? (7pm)
    And when you can please post TMNT, and whatever else was new on nickelodeon (Saturday)
    Thanks Nick ^_^

  • Jon23812

    @John, Nope, the Rugrats episode “All Growed Up” which aired July 21, 2001 is the #1 telecast on Nickelodoen.

  • Nathan

    @Trevor
    The reason Ant Farms ratings aren’t high is because the show doesn’t appeal to everyone. Examples, iCarly, GLC both appeal to anyone any age. Both have very funny innuendos, which adults can catch, and find it funny and cute. Ant Farm is an un-original show, that is a copy of iCarly/Victorious that uses old recycled jokes. The show mostly appeals to young kids, so that’s why it does great in the kid demos. I prefer shows that anyone can watch, not kiddie shows, but hey, that’s just me.

  • Nathan

    @John
    You forgot iQuit iCarly which got 8.8 million total viewers

  • Jon23812

    I see how A.N.T. Farm rips off Victorious, but how do they rip off iCarly?

  • Nathan

    Fletcher has a crush on Chyna, Freddie having a crush on Carly.
    Chyna’s BFF – Blondie (Olive) Carly’s BFF – Blondie (Sam)
    And the biggest one of all… ANGUS He’s fat and “stupid” just like hmm GIBBY…

  • Nathan

    Plus Ant farm once got Dan Schneider show Director (Steve Hoefer) Or however you spell his name.. to direct one of their episodes.. He hasn’t directed a non Dan show since Boy Meets World..

  • Trevor

    “See Dad Run” was on at 9 and wasnt up against the series finale of iCarly, was it? But go ahead and be toxic. Look at my post, I don’t slam other shows but this Nick “circle jerk” seems to really get off on it.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    I get when they go by the 18-49 rating to determine who ‘won’ the night for broadcast networks, but it doesn’t make much sense for cable. Especially for Nick and Disney who’s target audience is most definetly not 18-49.

  • Really

    No Disney or Nick show can touch the 30 min. telecast of iSaved Your Life – 12.4 million. Other shows came close with movies and specials but nothing came close to iCarly when it was in its prime. NOTHING! The worst scheduling ever hurt iCarly.

  • Juan

    iCarly did so bad, my God. :(

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Jon I’m sorry but where do you come up with 2.7 million viewers for a 90 minute FOP ( Nick’s #2 Cartoon ). The fact that It’s A SpongeBob Christmas aired on CBS changes nothing, SpongeBob scores 3 million for reruns. Plus, kids don’t watch CBS, so they probably didn’t know it was on. Also, I know Marvin Marvin sucks, but it’s new! How is it gonna blow that badly so quickly. Sorry, but your numbers are off, bro.

  • The90sAreAllThat

    Surprised so many people are shocked/disappointed with iCarly’s finale at 6.4. Considering the adversity the show experienced when Nick botched its scheduling and advertising of Season 5 and ESPECIALLY the first half of Season 6, its finale SHOULD be considered a hit.

    Season 6′s last four episodes were UNDER 3 million – disastrous for iCarly which was used to 4 million a premiere 7 million plus for specials. Season 6 was so bad that Nick separated the second half of that season into a Season 7 to completely be set a part from their mess up. earlier in the year.

    Nick improved with the scheduling by having iCarly premiere 6 straight episodes Saturday night at 8 p.m. under Gotta See Saturdays. They also improved with the advertising and promotion of those final 6 episodes, which averaged 3.5 million.. nothing amazing, but steady. Then Nick advertised iGoodbye for two straight weeks. Nick tried its best to fix its mess with iCarly and give its finale a shot at doing well.

    All things considered, I was expecting 4.5 million max for iGoodbye. Seeing 6.4 was surprising, all things considered.

  • Jon23812

    @Fate, FOP is airing on a Thursday, that why I perdicted that. Also SpongeBob reruns on weekdays usually get about 2.7 million views. But O’ll change my perdiction to 2.7 – 3.5. Also Timmy’s Secret Wish aired on a Wednesday and got 2.9 million.
