    Good to see. Another hit for Disney channel.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Wow. Not only did this special suck, it’s ratings really weren’t that impressive.

  • Ryan

    @Twist of Fate
    To me, this crossover, and the Phineas and Ferb episode, were aired WAAAAAAAAY too early! They were both technically new years themed specials; you don’t air new years specials on December 7th! You Disney people couldn’t wait until at least December 28th; the Friday before New Years Eve?

  • sbdiuofdg

    Disney usually does it a few weeks early so they can do repeats.

  • Melvin

    A fairly odd Christmas aired in November

  • Ryan

    That’s different. Nick did the right thing by airing Fairly Odd Christmas after Thanksgiving (November 29, I believe); the time where everyone starts to focus on Christmas. But this New Years crossover & P&F episode aired at a time when we’re all still focused on Christmas; which is just awkward.

    Can’t we focus on one holiday at a time? TV specials aren’t debuted in the same manner as holiday themed commercials.

  • Jared

    This was such a cute special. Disney Channel has a really great lineup at the moment.

  • tv fan 1986

    Yay for Phineas and Ferb, Jessie and Austin & Ally! I love these shows!

  • victoria

    i love u austin moon can u comein trinidad

  • Jennie

    The Austin&Jessie&Ally special sucked, it didn’t really have a great climax nor did it have a good purpose when they added what happened after he sang in “Time Square”. Had no story at all.
