    Merlin did the same as Haven. Impressive.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Wow at TANGLED!

  • CBSviewer

    Final numbers for Friday ?

  • RJ

    Nick at Nite did very well!

    Any word on how that USA movie/dead pilot airing did?

  • silvit

    I have to take it that when it will come back with new episodes Duck Dynasty will break records. :cry:

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Omg tangled did really good!!
    But sadly when Disney has nothing new they put their movies. Basically the only thing that does well all the time. That’s a disadvantage for nickelodeon, cause Disney has so many Disney movies and nickelodeon doesn’t.
    Like Disney, nickelodeon has a cartoon that always does well and that’s spongebob. So Disney has their movies and nickelodeon has spongebob.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Nickelodeon usually never airs their movies.. They have good ones that could do really good like
    Disney movies. They have: The adventures of tin tin, yours mine and ours, nacho libre, good burger, Rango, and many more.. It’s time for them to realize that.

  • Nicole
