    Someone help me, does Disney junior have its own channel, it has its own channel in the uk and I thought it took over some channel in the USA called soap or is it just a block on Disney channel

  • THE OLD MAN

    Gold Rush is pure gold (pardon the pun) ratings wise & Yukon Men is becoming a fixture at the top of the charts as well

  • baja7475

    Jacob,
    It has it’s own channel, it’s available on most systems. Very few have the HD feed though.

    Yukon Men, Wow! What a rise from last season. Great show, I can’t believe people still live like that. It’s great to learn about different areas and the dangers of the country, especially when it involved the accidental death in last season.

  • Shepherd

    I’m hoping Yukon’s ratings rise next week since it will air at 9 rather than 10. I’m a little surprised that Disc plans on airing the behind the scenes GR at 8 and Bering Sea at 10 next week, instead of the other way around.

    Good to see Merlin on the list, not that it matters considering it’s the last season.

  • Zoniako

    Banshee ratings please.

  • Bryan

    Can anyone provide ratings for “Alien Dawn” at 10pm on Nicktoons? Thanks! :)

    Thanks @Nick

    Aloha!

    The only “ghost hunting” show a person can take seriously is GHOST ADVENTURES on the Travel Channel. I’m not really surprised to see their viewership drop by half (at least) since they’ve been airing what they call “Recap/Specials” which is bits and pieces of past episodes put together to make one show. The regular “fans” would rather see full episode reruns rather than those. However, on February 22nd, they finally showed a brand new “lockdown” location…but after FOUR (4) weeks in a row of “Recap/Specials”, it looks like they lost some of their regular fans. Too bad as it really is a great show considering the topic. It’s about the only HONEST paranormal investigating show out there because you can actually TRUST the guys doing the “investigating” to NOT try to fake anything at all. I know it’s been renewed for 26 episodes for season 8, so there is a good chance it may make a comeback. I, for one, sure hope so!

    Thanks, Nick! :)
