  • Twist Of Fate

    YES, great improvement for Victorious this week. As satisfied as I am with the numbers, they would’ve been MUCH higher if it got as good of promotion as Marvin Marvin. God that show sucks. Oh, & what about TMNT.

  • disney rocks

    Go Cinderella!

  • I luv nickelodeon

    NO! NO! NO! NO! Raw should be the #1 number show on cable EVERY WEEK because I’M on it.

  • Jon23812

    I didn’t know Beauty & the Beast was on. That’s my second favorite Walt Disney Animation movie, behind Lilo & Stitch.

  • Jon23812
