  • BigHouse

    No Victorious, No Brand Show, No Alvin and the Chipmunks :( Nickelodeon is some dawn

  • Anonymous

    Cell Block should’ve been aired on November 10th and Tori Saves Beck and Jade aired after the final episode of iCarly (so it would have better ratings).

    To be honest, I’m not surprised Victorious didn’t hit the top 25 because I hardly saw any promos despite the rumors of Beck and Jade getting back together.

  • BigHouse

    My prediction for saturday:
    Brand Show Christmas: 3.5-5.9
    Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas: 3.0-4.9
    How to Rock Christmas: 1.5-2.9
    Victorious: 2.5-3.9

  • NickMe

    My prediction for nickelodeon are:
    Brand Show Christmas: 4.0-6.2
    Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas: 4.0-5.5
    How to Rock Christmas: 1.0-2.9
    Victorious: 3.0-4.5

  • Soniaq

    Brand Christmas (Nickelodeon) probably average 5.0 millions but don’t will watch for more, maybe fewer. But it would not surprise me that has less than 5 million, as nickelodeon rating has plummeted

  • Ryan

    Wow, Victorious didn’t make it even after Nick hyped up Beck and Jade getting back together? That makes me sad.

  • Charlie Sheen

    Maybe Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande’s new comedy can save Nickelodeon’s falling ship next year.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Funny how everyone is talking about how Nick’s sitcoms have gone downhill while Nick’s Cartoons ( SpongeBob & FOP ) scored 5 of the spots on the list.

    Alvin & The Chipmunks never aired on Nick. And what is this Brand Show you guys are talking about.

  • i luv nickelodeon

    The victorious episode should of got like 4 million cause it was a good episode. Marvin should just be canceled.
    How to rock was good. Im sad its ending next week.
    What is this brand show you guys are talking about. Alvin nevered aired on Nickelodeon..

  • Nathan

    @Twist of Fate
    They have gone down.. compared to last year

    Hyped up? Nickelodeon barely promoted the new Victorious episode..
    and what is this Alvin and the Chipmunks thing?

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Victorious has indeed lost viewers but it is still a very good show. Last years christmass episode for victorious got 4.4 million..

    What the brand show Christmas thing they are talking about.?

  • I luv nickelodeon

    *what is the brand show christmas thing.?

  • Twist Of Fate

    Victorious – 2.8 million viewers
    Marvin Marvin – 2.0 million viewers
    How To Rock – 1.6 million viewers

    Ya see Nick, this is what happens when you promote crappy shows like Marvin Marvin, over great shows like Victorious.

  • AJ

    GO DISNEY!!! Good Luck Charlie is Disney’s stop show, I’m glad… Nick SUCKS…. Just SUCKS… Marvin Marvin is retarded as hell, How to Rock is ending (finally), and Victorious is going downhill big-time.

  • Sil

    So let me get this straight: “Spongebob” appeared 3 times in the Top 25…..and an excellent series such as “Boardwalk Empire” (which had a phenomenal season finale) wasn’t even in that list??

  • Twist Of Fate

    @AJ So basically saying your a retard who thinks sitcom trash like Shake It Up, is better than quality shows like Victorious and SpongeBob. Sounds like a Disney fan to me.

    Oh, and as it turns out, FOP has been nominated for “Best Children’s Of The Year”. So, A Fairly Odd Christmas wasn’t a fluke or a lucky hat trick. Tuff Puppy has also been nominated for 3 different awards. Butch Hartman must be so proud. This just proves Tuff Puppy’s ratings decline was caused by Nick’s lazy promotion.

  • golakings

    @twist of fate
    if you say it like that u seem like a nick fan yourself…

  • Nathan

    @Twist Of Fate
    Really? He/she has her own opinion…. you don’t have to go calling her/him a retard. Sure her/his opinion is kind of stupid, but still we all (including Nickelodeon fans) must support everyone’s opinion about the network no matter how bad it is.
