There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

    Nick better market BTR and Sam and Cat well this year because not a single non-Spongebob show entered the top 25. A repeat of Jessie beat a new episode of Victorious? Embarrassing for Nick.

    On the other hand, GLC did outstanding for Disney. The finale ratings were up a few hundred thousand from last year’s season finale. Bodes well for Season 4 (possibly its last) opener.

  • Soniaq

    OMG No Victorious :((((((
    Jessie had a better rating the Saturday than Friday :O

  • jamie

    Spongebob only does well on Saturday mornings due to zero competition. Meanwhile, Disney channel is once again a ratings beast.

  • Rex

    Disney only does well on Sunday nights due to zero competition. Meanwhile, SpongeBob is once again a ratings beast.

  • jamie

    @Rex: Wrong, doesn’t Sickelodeon have shows on Sunday nights as well? Or do they spam Spongebob. If it had been 13 years ago (when FOX Kids, Kids WB, Disney’s One Saturday Morning were still on), Spongebob wouldn’t be as watched on Saturday mornings. Like I said zero competition for Spongebob equals why it does well on Saturdays at AM while Disney channel is doing good ratings wise.

  • Rex

    No, Nickelodeon ends at 8pm on Sundays and from then on it’s Nick@Nite shows.
    How is there zero competition on Saturdays? I could have sworn that Disney aired on Saturdays, too …

  • jamie

    @Rex, nope Disney channel airs Playhouse Disney during Saturday mornings, which are toons for the preschoolers, so no, not the same.

  • Rex

    The Disney preschool programming ends at 9am on Saturdays. The rest of the time it’s their regular shows. So yes, it is the same.

  • jamie

    Oh please, like I said, Spongebob has zero competition. Had it been 13 years ago when their was good competition, Spongebob wouldn’t be as watched on Sat. mornings as it is today.

  • Nathan

    Is that your excuse for Spongebobs dominant ratings? LOL.

  • Nathan

    You clearly know nothing. Disney airs its Friday night repeat episodes on Saturday mornings, plus there is a BUNCH of competition on a Saturday morning. That’s like saying Disney has no competition on a Friday Night, because, get real, THEY DO. Plus Victorious was up against the lifetime movie premiere of “Prosecuting Casey Anthony”. You clearly do not know the meaning of competition. Also, on Sunday nickelodeon has more diversity in their lineup on Sundays if you haven’t noticed, why would you notice anyway? You’ve been watching the Dingo Channel, haven’t you? ;)

  • Nathan

    Hey Jamie, you forgot to mention that a Spongebob repeat beat GLC’s heavily promoted season finale! I sense some jealousy in your comments.. :)

  • jamie

    @Nathan, nope, no jealousy. GLC and that Spongebob episode did well, but don’t forget two airings of Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 did higher than Spongebob as well!

  • nickelodeon rules

    then where are the two airings of Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 (a crappy movie)that did better than spongebob. Your obvious love of disney channel, a pathetic excuse for television, and your hatred of nickelodeon, a result of your stupidity, has blinded you to the point that you can’t even get your facts straight and can’t even think correctly. Nickelodeon has plenty of competition on saturday mornings from disney channel, it’s just that spongebob is the most popular children’s television show on cable t.v. that is why spongebob always wins, and not only on saturday night, but on weekdays as well where it is also the most watched children’s t.v. program of the night.

  • nickelodeon rules

    meant to say not only on saturday morning

  • disneynick101

    @Nathan, I think that particular spongebob episode that beat GLC was the new one with plankton’s pet, i may be wrong
    @jamie to be fair, good luck charlie got beaten fair and square by spongebob; yes spongebob does have a lot of competition in sat. mornings from phineas and ferb i think and glc has a lot of competition in sun. evenings from spongebob/repeats of other nick shows

  • jamie

    Spongebob has little to no competition on Saturday mornings. Had this been 13 years ago (when there was FOX Kids, Kids WB, Disney’s One Saturday Morning), Spongebob would not as watched. Spongebob still does well in the ratings, but not as well as it used to. As a matter of fact, all of Nick isn’t doing as well as it used to. Maybe they shouldn’t have cancelled 90% of it’s lineup last summer and stop spamming Spongebob.

    And as you can see, Disney has beat Nick for total day viewings for three weeks in a row. :)

  • Rex

    You keep saying that SpongeBob has no competition despite the fact that it obviously isn’t true. You yourself used the ratings of a movie that aired on Disney on Saturday to back up another argument.
    So which is it? Beverly Hills Chihuahua did well, or SpongeBob has no competition? You can’t have it both ways.

  • aaron

    Anyways, congrats to WWE Raw for doing big numbers. Glad to see the Rock back on Raw!

    Also, Spongebob is garbage. When are they gonna cancel that crap?!

  • nickelodeon rules

    it’s okay Rex, i think everyone here knows that jamie is delusional and too stupid to back up what she says with any facts and to see the true facts. She makes up things as she goes along.
