  • disney rocks

    much not ugh plot

  • Da Truth

    This is why the broadcasters gotta keep with the multi-cams they are some strong repeaters, NAN roster is built on multi-cams.

  • silvit

    I’d say is built around a bunch of iconic sit-coms. Many multi-cam sit-coms failed in recent years on broadcast, not lastly Partners.

  • Lu

    Go Haven! Even if it’s already renewed.

  • Ladica

    Austin Jessie and ally did well with rating, did well in demo even though its mainly for kids, and its quite sad slamming a show even though it is doing well, grow up some primes, yes I know shows like raven lizzie zack and Cody were really good, but some of those shows wouldn’t do well in this generation because it has changed so everything has to change. Especially you @twist of fate, you keep on complaining about Disney, yet they are making millions of dollars while you are there sitting down complaining about a KIDs show

  • Ladica

    Some people in the other post are complaining that Disney channel aired the New Year’s Eve episode to early, no they didn’t its so they can repeating it during this month, and its obviouse that they are not going to show a lot until probably next year October or November because its a New Years episodes, nickelodeon and disney are quite smart by airing Christmas shows early so they can repeating this month, the next item we will see christmas episodes is December 2013

  • Melvin

    I heard that Disney channel is putting gravity falls on hiatus mainly because Disney channel wants every international Disney channel be on the same time with gravity falls for a special world wide event, but could be a rumour

  • Nicole

    I still think that nickelodeon are te dumb once putting shows on hiatus just cancel the shows like fanboy, planet sheen, Fred the show, and tuff puppy, but not fairly odd parents that’s my favourite nick show better than spongebob

    @Nick:

    First of all, Thanks for your work.

    Secondly, are you sure that last weeks viewership numbers for ”Hunted” were correct?

    Nov. 16: 10:01 PM: 0.100 million viewers, 0.03 A18-49

    Nov. 23: 10:00 PM: 0.110 million viewers, 0.04 A18-49

    Nov. 30: 10:02 PM: 0.229 million viewers, 0.05 A18-49

    Dec. 07: 10:02 PM: 0.143 million viewers, 0.07 A18-49

    On Nov. 30, suddenly more than twice as much viewers than the weeks before and still much more than for the finale?

  • Ryan

    Does anyone know how Killer Karaoke on Trutv did?

  • Chris

    Maybe Cinemax showed something before the Nov. 30th Hunted that boosted its ratings. Or maybe it’s just a Nielsen glitch. An ‘outlier’, as pollsters say. Perhaps they farmed out the poll to Gallup or Rasmussen that week. [smile]

  • Nick

    @redlock – they were indeed correct last week; it likely had more to do with the lead-in than anything else – Project X averaged 371K viewers before it while this week it had Wanderlust at 228K viewers.

    @Ryan – Killer Karaoke averaged 0.730 million viewers and a .32 A18-49 rating.

  • jay

    @redlock, chris
    Here’s some cinemax programs before Hunted aired, according to their online guide.

    Nov. 2 : 08:20 PM This means war (2012 Feb.) ? 18.1 million viewers, 0.04% A18-49
    Nov. 9 : 08:35 PM Chronicle (2012 Feb.) ? 18.3 million viewers, 0.09% A18-49
    Nov. 16 : 07:55 PM The Day After Tomorrow(2004) ? 10.0 million viewers, 0.03% A18-49
    Nov. 23 : 07:50 PM Fast Five (2011) ? 11.0 million viewers, 0.04% A18-49
    Nov. 30 : 08:30 PM Project X (2012 Mar.) ? 22.9 million viewers, 0.05% A18-49
    Dec. 7 : 08:15 PM Wanderlust (2012 Feb.) ? 14.3 million viewers, 0.07% A18-49

    Well, It seems fresher movies boosted up ratings for Hunted.

  • JCrawl

    Thank you Nick! I really appreciate it…

  • James

    Thank you Nick!

  • redlock

    @Nick and @jay:

    Thanks for the information and clarification!!

  • Chris

    Thanks to both Nick and Jay, but obviously Cinemax never gets such huge ratings for movies as we see in Jay’s post. They don’t even have 22.9mil subscribers, last I checked. But clearly first-run Hunted fell hard from its non first-run lead-ins every week.

  • Twist Of Fate

    My advice to Nick:

    Shows To Cancel- Marvin Marvin, Fanboy, Fred: The Show, Planet Sheen
    Shows To Keep- Victorious, SpongeBob, Tuff Puppy, Robot & Monster, TMNT, Korra (Spring 2013 Season2), FOP

    Shows I Don’t Care- BTR, Kung Fu Panda ( Good show but movies are better), Penguins
