    The Walking Dead and The Bible are awesome!!!!!

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Fairly oddparents did okay, i was expecting more. The KCA’s did not do so well. I was expecting at least 7 million. Overall it was good but not many people watched it. Last year did better. But i mean it did better than wizards. So go nickelodeob. MVA looks like it bombed! Lol Nick better stick to original cartoons/aminations. BRING BACK JIMMY NEUTRON!!!

  • disney rocks

    Last year KCAs were low 6 millions. This year high 5 millions. I have to say thats not a bad drop for a network in the toilet.

  • Anon

    Just saying maybe if Sam and Cat aired in the post KCA spot……..

    The KCAs actually did better than I was expecting. The Monsters vs. Aliens thing was obviously a flop if it didn’t even chart after a 5.8.

  • Melvin

    Actually the wizards return did better than the kids choice awards @iluvnickelodeon

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Oh really? Lol. Well they were both around the that range of viewers. But over the weekend it got over 12 million.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Sorry for my grammar lol. I’m typing on my phone fast that I don’t even notice I’m messing up.

  • jamie

    The KCAs did better last year with 6.2 million. Nick is dropping. Monsters Vs Aliens didn’t make the top 25, that’s not good either.

    Good to see NCIS doing well.

  • Jon23812

    Monsters vs Aliens was one of the worst DreamWorks movies, so it wasn’t wise to make a TV show based off it.

  • outlawz

    ncis cbs created a monster

    KCA ratings were down overall, but were up in all the targeted demos compared to last year – which is the more important statistic.

    On top of that, the ratings dropped less between this year (2012 to 2013/0.4) compared to last year (2011 to 2012/1.1) so… I’d say it was a solid showing for the KCAs this year. Plus they had a record set for voters and the KCAs had over 12 million viewers for the weekend. Hardly a flop overall. Besides, ratings for awards shows in general go down every year. It’s a trend across all awards shows – network or broadcast.

    Regarding Monsters vs Aliens’ 3.1 (3.129). Kung Fu Panda also premiered at a 3.1 after the KCAs, yet it became Nick’s third best cartoon in the ratings after SBSP and FOP. So it’s up in the air if it’s a fail or not.

    Kung Fu Panda didn’t air after the KCAs. It premiered November 7, 2011 after SpongeBob.

  • Shaun Daily-Las Vegas

    Any numbers for DALLAS ?

  • Myrna

    Man, Fairly Odd Parents tanked big time. The fairy dog show was a REAL dog. Time to take that show to the pound!

  • jamie

    If 12 million viewers voted for this year’s KCAs, that means more than half of them didn’t bother watching the show. That would raise some eyebrows, don’t you think?
