    Yay! I Loved The finale!

    Piece of crap finale that should have aired 3 years ago, at least. Nickelodeon should have ended up the show at its peak, not after it lost a lot of its audience (and quality).

  • Casey

    YES TMNT FTW! Best show on television right now IMO!

  • Jon23812

    How many viewers did Victorious get?

  • Jon23812

    Never mind, found out. 3.4 million.

    I love the new last episode of iCarly and Miranda Cosgrove in USC FLIRTING WITH BOYS LOL!

  • Really

    Marvin, Marvin is so bad and embarrassing for Nick.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Allegra
    Omg please shut up… Your totally pathetic..

  • Twist Of Fate

    iGoodbye was a great way to close the show. Other than the 6.4 million viewers, my only problem was they didn’t air a Sam & Cat or Gibby promo. I saw a House Of Anubis promo, though. Too bad that show sucks. I bet when it airs for real, Nick won’t promote it. I’m hoping for a promo for Sparky ( Timmy’s new magic dog ), during A Fairly Odd Christmas.

    A Fairly Odd Christmas – 3.7 – 4.6 million viewers

    “Marvin MArvin” was the worst premiere ever. He can win but only because he follws the last chapter of iCarly. Let´s see what happen next week. I like Nickelodeon and I liked Fred. But Marvin Marvin was the worst show ever. We can said more than 2 millons watched his first chapter or more than 4 millon run away of “Marvin MArvin” after watched the last chapter of ICarly. The only good character was the antagonist of the first chapter (the son of Reba in Malibu Country), and he only was a guest character for the first chapter. Good end of ICarly. Bad start of Marvin Marvin.

    @JT.
    I happened to like the first episode of Marvin Marvin. It establishes characters and gives it the idea of a real family; how is supposed to be. My biggest issue with iCarly was that adults are treated as stupid and always send off/ ordered around like the kids… LIKE THAT will happen on real life.
    Coming from a foster home, I like the idea of someone living on a real family and being accepted even if they are different.

    Besides, icarly aired of Friday, and Marvin Marvin was on Saturday, after Victorious, so the whole part you wrote about numbers is wrong, cause those 4 millions that watched Icarly, (friday) were probably at the movies the next day (saturday)

  • ikin
