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

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

    FLOPCARLY at #3 where it belongs. Couldn’t even best Wizards of Waverly Place!

    Hope Nickelodeon learned their lesson and decide not to murder their shows by having 6-9 month droughts of no new episodes (MID SEASON) and then air the rest of the FIVE EPISODE season one episode a month.

  • Chris O’Brien

    A nice way to end for iCarly. I’m surprised Victorious pulled such great numbers on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Any numbers for the premiere of Marvin Marvin at 830 on Nick?

  • Anonymous

    Marvin Marvin earned 2.606 million viewers, 25.5% off of Victorious’ Lead in. It earned just a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Allegra
    Um for your information iCarly was more successful than wizards.. iCarly got over 11 million views for a 30 minute special, while wizard only got high views on the movie and series finale.. So next time say something true, cause Icarly wasnt a flop..

    Anyways.. Go icarly, victorious and spongebob.! ^_^

  • THE OLD MAN

    Nice to see SOA, Gold Rush & TWD so solidly in there. Nice to see TBBT on this list also.

  • Kaylie

    @I luv nickelodeon.. You’re right. While iCarly was getting all the commercial success and high ratings, Wizards had all the critical success winning them 3 Emmy Awards for their run on Disney Channel. While iCarly’s audience flopped on them, Wizards audience stabilized throughout all their 4 seasons. Plus, the cast members are working on future projects outside of Disney, while Nick is continuing to recycle their stars into new shows. So think twice before you start to bash them.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Kaylie Yes, and while Wizards was playing 2nd fiddle to Hannah Montana, iCarly destroyed both shows on a weekly basis. And while Nick stars are being productive with their lives, Disney stars are turning in little 19 year old divas (*cough miley cyrus cough*). And while iCarly went out with a bang, Disney’s summer reign is over, and Nick has won 2012. ktnxbai

  • Twist Of Fate

    Oh, and here’s a fun fact, Wizards ratings weren’t as steady as you Disney fans think. I was going trough the show’s ratings and the show took a nosedive during season 3. So yeah, Wizards wasn’t special.

  • BigHouse

    YEAHHHH ICARLY, VICTORIOUS AND BRAND SHOW

  • jamie

    Actually, Disney’s reign was before the summer started and now that iCarly, How To Rock, and Victorious are ending, Nick’s “reign” is most likely over. Disney channel for the win.

  • tobias

    Nick for the win!!!

  • Kaylie

    iCarly went out with a bang.. a 3 million shy bang than what Wizards went out with.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @jamie Will you leave me the h*ll alone. I guess you forgot SpongeBob scores higher than any Disney show. Oh, and The Fairly Odd Parents just scored 4 million viewers. And is their something wrong with your head, How To Rock is the least popular show on Nick right now. Well promoted episodes score under 2 million viewers.

    @Kaylie Whether or not iCarly LEFT a bigger show than Wizards, it WAS a bigger show than Wizards.
    iSaved Your Life- 12.4 million viewers
    Wizards Series Finale- 9.8 million viewers
    You little 10 year old girls will soon understand Disney will never surpass Nick.
    iCarly > Wizards

  • BigHouse

    My prediction from Brand Christmas, Alvin and the chimpmunks christmas and how to rock Christmas:
    Brand Show: 3.0-5.9
    Alvin and the chipmunks: 3.0-4.9
    How to Rock: 1.5-2.9
    Gooo Brand Shoooow

  • ikin

    QUE IMPORTA SI NO SE GANO UN EMMY DE SUS 4 NOMINACIONES( SI SE LO HUBIERA GANADO QUE BIEN)PERO SE GANO LO MEJOR EL RESPETO DEL PUBLICO Y LA GRAN AUDIENCIA QUE TENIA… ESO LO HIZO POR MÉRITOS PROPIOS Y SIN ESCÁNDALOS ILOVE ICARLY

    NEVER SAY IGOODBYE
