  • NickMe

    Yeahhhhhh Sam & Cat beat Disney!!!!!!!! So Goood

  • AJ

    Even though I prefer Disney, good job, Nick! Sam & Cat was very entertaining :)

  • Nick

    Hardly a big difference from Sam and cat and Jessie especially for a premiere, and Disney still manage to beat nick for the week in total viewers

  • Nick

    I’m not hating, just saying what I think

  • Love

    Was Sanjay and Craig new this week

  • AJ

    @ Nick,

    I agree with you. Overall, Disney still beat Nick. Just saying.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Nick needs to promote their Nicktoons better, they let up for two weeks & look what happened. But god forbid this be SpongeBob’s fault.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Love Yesd, it probably scored around 2.8-3.0 million viewers.

  • NickMe

    I talk about that Sam & Cat beat Disney’s Premiere Saturday 8th
    Overall Disney Win!!!!

  • Nathan

    Nick is coming out of a huge ratings decline, this is amazing. At the end of the day, Disney is the one that got bombed. DWAB and A&A weren’t going up against anything. No excuse for not being on the chart.

  • AJ

    Despite Nick’s Sam & Cat premiere, Disney Channel was still #1 with K2-11, 6-11, T9-14 and total viewers for the week.

  • Twist Of Fate

    A&A can hold it’s own, but DWAB DEFINITELY relies on GLC for good ratings.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @AJ How do you know it won the demos

  • Twist Of Fate

    Never mind, I see it

  • 90s

    Nick didn’t under promote its Nicktoons, they overpromoted Sam and Cat this week and rightfully so.

    What Nick needs to do is air new SBSP and TMNT episodes. Essentially, FOP, SJC and MvA are premiering with reruns of SBSP and TMNT in between. The last SBSP that premiered before SJC’s series premiere scored 4.1 on a week’s worth of promotion. The morning block is doing pretty good without SBSP, but Nick needs to give them a SBSP boost.

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Nickelodeon why would u put marvin marvin after sam and cat???? LIke no that show is just terrible and not funny just like dog with blog. And why would u guys put btr on thursdays? It should of been on Saturdays. Wendell and Vinne is really funny but it doesn’t deserve to be on nick.
    Nick should make their staurdays like this:
    7:30: Spongebob
    8:00: Sam and Cat
    8:30: Big tIme rush
    9:00: Sanjay and Craig
    9:30: FOP or spongebob

  • MichaelChickless

    Was that the season premiere of Burn Notice?

  • Jon23812

    Sam & Cat did great, but I’m kind of disappointed. Dan tweeted “huge ratings”, and those ratings “great”, but not “huge”.

    I guess people thought since Disney was airing the same shows on Sunday, that they would just watch the Sunday premieres. Sunday nights is a day people are more likely to watch TV.

  • nickelodeon69

    What did Marvin Marvin get after Sam and Cat?

  • 90s

    Marvin Marvin under 2 million wouldn’t surprise me. Realistically, probably 2.1-2.4 million – if it’s lucky. No way a show like MM retains SaC audience. Maybe Big Time Rush would have benefitted greatly from SaC, but not MM.
