    At least Disney, Cartoon Network, and The Hub have/try to have, multiple good shows. Nick just leaves it to SpongeBob. Heck, Nick has a good show (Korra), and they’re doing NOTHING with it.

    Disney fans, get youre punk selfs outta here. Youre just mad that Disney lost too. Nick may spam SpongeBob but at least their shows are worth watching. Gravity Falls is the only enjoyable show on Disney. Tuff Puppy, Korra, SpongeBob, FOP, BTR, TMNT(especially) etc. are all better than the crappy sitcoms (Shake It Up) Disney is putting out

  • Phil

    Why can’t you all just agree to disagree. Enough hating on other networks!

    @Twist of Fate, say what you will about those shows and Disney show, but SpongeBob is awful. It hasn’t been good since 2004. New SpongeBob episodes now only appeal to the lowest common denominator
