    i guess tmnt does better on saturday mornings

  • Nathan

    Poor TMNT. It does better at 11 AM.

  • rob60990

    Well I’m glad I’m not the only one watching “Deadly Women” on ID. ;)

  • Mon

    Yikes Spartacus did bad, a lot lower than last year’s premire: 1.4 million viewers and 0.6 A18-49. Maybe it’s the new timeslot. But it’s the last season so ratings don’t matter anymore. Anyway, the premiere episode was fantastic! I’m loving the new villain.

  • John A

    I thought Spartacus used to do alot better thats very low.

  • disney rocks

    Go Deadly Women! AWESOME show!

  • Sel

    Banshee somebody ?

  • jamie

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles did decent. A clear sign that Sickelodeon should air something other than Spongebob once in a while.

  • Zoniako

    Anyone have the Banshee ratings?

  • Shepherd

    Pay cable only cares about total viewers over all airings, so Spartacus actually did quite well according to the press release.
    I’m not sure why I find the show funny, but I’m still amazed at how well DD repeats do. It seems like these episodes have aired a dozen times a piece and still they grab .8’s in the demo.

  • jamie

    i love nickelodeon and admit that i have been an idiot for liking disney all these years.

  • Nathan

    @Jamie
    You just called Nickelodeon “Sickelodeon” and now claim that you love it….

  • Reache

    If you here @Nick, would you post this week & last week “Banshee” numbers please?
    thanks in advance.

  • Jon23812

    @Jamie, really? Nickelodeon sucks. The only good shows they have is The Legend of Korra. Disney Channel has Phineas & Ferb, Gravity Falls, Jessie, Good Luck Charlie, and Wander Over Yonder

  • Frankie

    ……and I bet that Spartacus press release embellished just a tad…bottom line, it didn’t do that well.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @jon23812
    They haven’t aired wander over yonder so dont assume it is good until you watch it.
    As for taste you really have a bad one.. Phinese and ferb is dying in terms of audience, Jessie is becoming worse and worse, it really isn’t funny. GLC and Gravity falls are the ONlY good shows left on Disney. Cartoon Network is better network than Disney.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Is anybody ready to see Wendell and vinnie!? I think it’s gonna be pretty entertaining and funny due to jerry trainor. :D

  • Shepherd

    Not much to embellish for Spartacus. The numbers are up from last year, and 2nd highest STARZ Friday ratings ever.

    “The season premiere episode of “Spartacus: War of the Damned” debuted on STARZ Friday, January 25th and produced the second highest ratings performance (5.5 gross ratings point/GRP) ever on a Friday night for a STARZ Original series premiere.

    The Friday 5.5 GRP number from STARZ subscribers trails only the 2011 Spartacus prequel, “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (6.3),” but was well ahead of “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” (3.7) and “Spartacus: Vengeance” (4.7).”

    So trying to say that it did bad compared to last year is nonsense.

  • Nathan

    @Jon
    You like a channel that airs a show about a talking dog with a blog…lord have mercy.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Go Gold Rush!
