    Another successful week for Disney!!!! :D

  • romo

    For the night is dark & full of terrors.

  • Mile. E. Stewart

    Guess Duck Dynasty was not on last week and wow, no Sponge with the playoffs.

    DWAB is not going to be renewed. How do you lose that much interest between a GLC and an A&A sandwich? Oh…because it’s terrible acting (the parents mostly).

  • Nate

    Dog with a blog is already renewed for season 2

  • Twist Of Fate

    Darn Fop just missed the list. It scored 3.1 million viewers. And god the playoffs are hurting SpongeBob’s numbers.

  • disneynick101

    Disney is doing really good, and @twist of fate, playoffs are not hurting spongebob; it’s the god awful studio 10–nobody wants to watch spongebob anymore with those clowns on television

  • iBigTimeFan101

    Disney ratings are skyrocketing while Nickelodeon is fading day by day. They’d better speed up Sam & Cat before the damage becomes irreversible
