    No Victorious :(
    Brand Show, Alvin and the chipmunks and spongebob was very well

  • B plus

    Sara Bibel,

    You forgot to add that POSTGUN was in the top 25 as it earned 4.25 viewers and it aired on December 6, 2012 at 11:30pm on NFLN.

  • romo

    Why is it always postgun not postgame ?

  • Twist Of Fate

    The fact that ANY show can get 6 spots on this chart on RERUNS blows my fricken mind away. SpongeBob may get annoying, but thumbs up. TBBT is another repeat monster. Not to mention it’s the #1 comedy on TV with Adults 18-49. HA Modern Family.

    And to all the Disney fans who though Nick got destroyed, SpongeBob says otherwise. Oh, and TMNT beat SUI & Dog WAB.
    LOL at Despicable Me.

  • NickMe

    Yeahh for Brand Christmas I think that this show was very well, I believe that Brand Christmas would delivery 3.0-4.0
    I’m happy for Brand Show and Alvin and the Chipmunks and Spongebob but not for Victorious :(

  • Chins

    Brand Show did very very very well :) Go nickelodeon

  • LindaLo

    Great, Brand Show almost has the same rating as A Fairly odd Christmas and Spongebob :b

  • Nick

    Brand Show, Spongebob and Alvin did very well

  • HectorFigueroa

    Wow Brand Show is best that Alvin and the Chipmunks and Victorious
    Anybody know the Victorious Rating and how to rock and Marvi marvin

  • @!Me

    for this Brand Show has Five Season. Big Rating

  • Red

    1. WTF is Brand Christmas/Brand Christmas?
    2. What has Alvin and the Chipmunks got to do with anything?

  • KevinLopez

    Hopefully brand Show will has 6 season

  • Big House

    Brand Show is all Great Shows :)
    And Alvin and the Chipmunks is imaginary

  • Twist Of Fate

    If you guys haven’t realized it yet, a troll has made all these fake accounts to screw with us Nick fans. It’s really not funny though, we all know Brand Show isn’t real. You can tell it’s 1 guy cause his comments are showing up all at once.
