    Hey Nick – If you wouldn’t mind, Bio 10P Haunted Encounters. Thanks again.

  • Meanie

    Ufc is a epic fail & wow this is the first only 1 hour of Smackdown made the List. Can the other half of smackdown drop the big.

    Rugrats in Paris :)

  • Twist Of Fate

    LOL at Rugrats In Toyland. I know Nick didn’t air anything new but, should I be offended that Peter Rabbit was the most watched kids program on Friday ( 3.0 million viewers ). Wow. Well, I bet SpongeBob’s Stocking Stuffed Sunday destroyed in the ratings.

  • Ryan

    How did killer karaoke do?

  • Chris

    Why don’t you publish Saturday Cable Ratings?

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Twist of fate
    Why did you LOL at rugrats.?

  • MVProductions44

    @Meanie…the Smackdown ratings was for the full two hours; they never break down the ratings for Smackdown between 8 and 9 p.m.

  • Big House

    wow I’m surprised for Rugrats, and the last Thursday for DRAKE AND JOSH
    Rigrats 2.3 and two episodes for DRAKE AND JOSH (last Thursday) 2.6
    Yeah Nickelodeon

  • Grady

    Uh, what happened to Jungle Gold this week?? Why did it plummet like that?

  • Just Desserts

    CNN wins whenever something bad happens. Guess we know what they are wishing for this Christmas.
