There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

    Revenge? Disney was being idiotic by putting GLC up against Sam & Cat. FYI, that was the scheduled premiere date for weeks, Disney saw that, and put S&C up against it.

    Disney can keep destroying Nick all it wants, but when we get that PR saying Korra will premiere on Fridays, all hell will break loose.

    “Disney can keep destroying Nick all it wants, but when we get that PR saying Korra will premiere on Fridays, all hell will break loose.”

    Like that will help matters much, it won’t for Nick. Disney channel is the #1 network for kids now. Haunted Hathaways will be cancelled real soon too.

  • #bravod

    Spongebob didn’t do that well on Fridays, Korra would only do worse.

  • AJ

    So much arguing…

  • #bravod

    No I’m not arguing!! I didn’t directly attack anyone or anything!!!! Keepin it peaceful!

  • Nathan

    Bravo, you are an idiot. That Spongebob incident happened 2 years ago, and Korra has a strong fan base, wherever the show goes, the fans will go. I can’t even deal with you anymore..

    Like I said before, jamie, you fail to mention that the show was up against a TBM encore. Now, next week if the ratings aren’t up to par, then you can judge, but both shows get an EZ pass this week.

    Like I said before – again, Nickelodeon is rebuilding and you can’t expect these excellent ratings the channel once received, It’s going to take a lot of hard work, and determination, one they get their mojo back, then the “war” between Nick and Disney can begin. But right now, all you’re doing is comparing apples to oranges, due to the state both networks are in right now.

  • #bravod

    Why does there have to be so much hate!!?! ^This was unnesscesary!

  • #bravod

    People just can’t get enough of Teen Beach Movie! I smell a sequel!! I bet the sequel with get 10 million+

  • #bravod

    Can I just ask though why you say Koora is on Fridays? I never heard that news

  • Twist Of Fate

    Korra has not been announced for a Friday slot yet but it’s the only slot that makes sense. SatAm is completely filled up with kids shows which really don’t fit in with Korra’s dark nature. I wouldn’t be surprised if they moved Korra and TMNT to Friday. Both are a bit darker (Korra is much darker) more action filled shows with new seasons both premiering in September. And SBSP not performing on Friday happened the same time as Nick’s ratings drop so go figure. Anf Fyi: Korra’s numbers are much higher than SpongeBob’s. Last summer with no promotion or repeats Korra was outdoing everything on both channels.

  • Jon23812

    Korra should air on Fridays. Saturday mornings is a bad time slot. Why would they (and Cartoon Network) even put shows on Saturday mornings? They’re not Vortexx that has only 5 hours of airtime, Nick has over 90 hours of airtime.

  • Michael

    @nathan actually Disney only did that for Sam and
    Cat wouldnt get such a high premiere
    4.2 for a premiere is not that much
    But they also killed GLC with 1.9 million
    It’s called show Sacrafice they did the same thing
    With Ant Farm (2.4 million Vs. Icarly series
    Finale (6.4 million) for it wouldn’t get
    Such a high rated series finale

  • Michael

    @jamie The haunted Hathaways from
    3.3 to
    2.1 million it either rises or if it drops lower for
    Sure nick will cancel it Nick really
    Needs to improve with making live action

  • Nathan

    Sweetie, you’re obviously too young to be on this site..

  • #bravod

    Honestly, why is there so much passive aggressive behavior!^

  • Michael

    @#Bravod you got the right
    What’s your problem @Nathan your calling me a kid
    Please I believe am alot older and “Mature” than you are
    You just can’t handle the truth and i’m sorry did you just call me

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Michael Umm drops from series premieres are quite common, especially on Nick. Sanjay and Craig, Sam an Cat, TMNT, Etc. all dropped greatly from their premieres than stabilized afterwards. Not to mention it was up against TBM. So you’re opinion that it should be cancelled is obviously biased

  • Twist Of Fate

    And @jamie if you haven’t noticed Nick has not had a full slate of premieres yet this summer. ALL Of Nick’s top shows (exculding SaC & TMNT) are on hiatus. What do you think will happen when FOP, SpongeBob, Sanjay and Craig, TMNT, Korra, & Sam & Cat all premiere at once.?

  • Nathan


    Yeah you’re so much more “mature” than me, yet your grammar is horrible, and your sentences make absolutely no sense.

    #bravod, I’m really getting sick and tired of seeing your comments. What’s going on now does not involve you, so I have no idea why you keep coming back to this thread, and making pointless comments.

  • Michael

    Can you shut up, does it matter if I have poor grammar?
    That has nothing to do with me being mature just fighting with someone
    Over stupid Grammar
    Is incredibly immature so if you have an opinion to yourself cuz I don’t need to bear it
