    Well done disney

  • Alex S.

    Lol a tie?!

    Historic!!! Great to see Disney at number One!!!

  • Nathan

    Oh my! The disney fans are coming out of their dens! Where were you guys when Nick was beating the mouse, week after week.

  • Twist Of Fate

    So now were all gonna pretend like Disney was the only #1. Hm Typical. If Nick didn’t rely so heavily on SpongeBob for EVERYTHING this wouldn’t ever even of happened. SpongeBob’s ratings are going down again. The highest it scored on Sunday was 2.5 million viewers

  • Nathan

    @Twist Of Fate
    I’m laughing at the fact how you forgot to mention that it scored 3.6 million viewers on Saturday, @ 10:30 AM.

    @Nathan, it’s so sad that Sickelodeon has to air Spongebob so many times throughout the day at all. Meanwhile, Disney has a stable of hit shows.

    Good to see Disney also winning Primetime total viewers this week!

  • Nathan


    If Disney has a “stable hit of shows”, why did they lose to Nickelodeon in K2-11 this past quarter?

    ..and don’t say it’s because of Spongebob, because last year, Nick was spamming Spongebob, and Disney beat them in that core demo.

    Also, an FYI: In a press release from Disney in either February or March 2013, Disney said they were projected//pacing to beat Nickelodeon in the K2-11 category for the first quarter. News flash, they didn’t. Nickelodeon fought back, and fought back hard.

    Also, “Sickelodeon” beat the mouse, in its core key demo, K2-11, and had a dramatic increase in total viewers, in 1Q13.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nathan I hadn’t seen that yet, but either way SpongeBob usually is around or above 4 million viewers at 10:30. Not to mention its weekday ratings have taken a huge hit. But Nick Studio 10 is to blame for that. That show is so annoying.

  • Twist Of Fate

    In my opinion, TMNT is the reason for Nick’s recent recovery. It to is up there is the 3 million viewers rerun range along with SpongeBob. But the difference is, Nick treats TMNT far worse. It doesn’t have a daily timeslot, Total Turtle Takeover Friday is barely promoted, & it’s even being overshadowed by FOP whose ratings are inferior
