    @Twist of Fate.. DWAB does nto rely on GLC. DWAB has gotten 4 million viewers without a GLC lead in before.

    Yes, it was the beginning of the end for Burn Notice. Hope they give it a proper ending. Been watching too long for the writers to screw it up now.

  • jamie

    I’m a little shocked. I thought “Sam & Cat” would get 5-6 million viewers. Although 4.1 million is still good, it’s not as big as I thought it would be.

    Especially considering Nick cancelled so many shows last fall for “Sam & Cat”, and this happens. An episode of “How To Rock” scored 4.4 million viewers last year and got axed. Not saying S&C will be (of course not), but it’s not big enough for Nick.

    Good Luck Charlie Scores 1.911 (Saturday 8th)

  • Nathan

    @Jamie That episode had a KCA lead in, and the following episode plummeted in the ratings. That show deserved to be canceled. It was given MANY chances.

  • hEYWOOD

    Good Luck Charlie officially cancelled after this season!!

  • jamie

    @Nathan, what MANY chances” are you talking about? It was treated badly, just like “Bucket & Skinner”, “The Troop”, “True Jackson VP”, “Just Jordan”, and a slew of others in the past several years by Nick. Any show that’s not from Dan Schneider or Spongebob is treated like crap by the network.

    @hEYWOOD GLC isn’t canceled, it’s ending after the 4th season. The 4th is supposed to be it’s last season.

  • Nathan

    @jamie Hmm lets see, the premiere was HEAVILY PROMOTED along with the Victorious season premiere, plus Nick gave the show 2 episodes to premiere on one night, then ratings began to plummet. Nick noticed this, and gave the show THE BEST POSSIBLE LEAD IN – ever, a KCA one. That episode scored over 4 million viewers, but quickly sank. Clearly, people didn’t like the show, and were sick of these “I want to be a singing sensation” shows.
