    Go Spongebob! It’s so good :D. It’s always been a hit (-ish) for Nickelodeon!

    what did marvin marvin get?

    How pathetic of Sickelodeon. To rely on only ONE show of your whole programming is sad. I hate to say it, but at least Disney channel is doing well with all their shows. What happens if/when Spongebob goes down again (which has already happened), what is Sick going to do?

    ^ Somebody sounds a little bitter.

  • jamie

    @Rex Nope, not bitter. Just being honest.

    I do get what you’re saying … but it’s kind of a moot point. What happens if SpongeBob goes down again? Sucks for Nickelodeon. But right now it’s doing extremely well.

  • Meanie

    Nickelodeon needs to find another flagship show. But I can’t knock Nickelodeon Spongebob is a culture phenom worth hundreds of millions in Toys, Accessories & etc.

    Get a life and stop hating on a show. Just because the shows repeats, and new episodes are murdering Disney’s shows in the ratings, doesn’t mean you can sit there and bash it like a 5 year old.

    I would rather watch Barney than any Disney show that’s currently on.

    Plus, with the KCA’S coming, we already know which network is going to win March in the demos, and in viewers. ;)
