    @Nathan, you like a channel that airs shows about a teenager with a sped up voice and a poor ALF rip-off. Lord have mercy.

  • 1454

    Spartacus so bad… but amazing episode.

  • Nick

    Banshee (Cinemax)
    -10:01 PM: 0.405 million viewers, 0.13 A18-49

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Jon You like a channel which airs a show about a girl who skips a middle school because of her talent. Victorious much? Lord have mercy.

  • Nathan

    @Jon
    Jon I find it hilarious that you support Disney When I see you on the Sam & Cat, Victorious, and iCarly wikias.

  • James

    Thanks @Nick

    And you know that rating had Banshee in previous episodes?

  • Nick

    @James – the premiere delivered 483K viewers (0.18 A18-49) while episode two was at 343K viewers (0.14 A18-49)

  • Reache

    @Nick,
    Thanks for the Banshee numbers!

  • James

    Thanks @Nick

  • Ryan

    Thanks @Nick for the ratings.

    Also happy to hear that Banshee has been renewed for a second season.

    @Nathan, Just because I support Disney doesn’t mean I’m Anti-Nick, I’m just saying that at the moment Disney is better than Nickelodeon.

  • Nathan

    @Jon23812
    Well try to be specific next time, because you stated the only good Nick show is Korra, which I didn’t get due to you being on Sam & Cat, iCarly, & Victorious wikias.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Jon You said Nick sucks. So you were lying.

  • Jon23812

    @Nathan, iCarly has ended and Victorious is ending so those shows don’t count. I’m only talking about the shows currently on the air. If you’re talking about the ENTIRE Nickelodeon and Disney Channel library, then Nick would be better.

  • Nathan

    @Jon23812
    I just don’t get what people see in Disney honestly. Other than GLC, Gravity Falls (and SOMETIMES A&A) The whole lineup basically..stinks. Nickelodeon’s lineup isn’t great either, the only show I watch on the Channel is Victorious..but I’ve studied the network for years, and know where they can improve on – in certain areas, plus their upcoming lineup seems interesting. I stopped watching Disney after WOWP ended, and probably will stop watching Nickelodeon after Victorious ends, and return to the network when Sam & Cat premieres..

  • Dee Em Styles

    Merlin rules. Love that show!
