    @Bravo
    Why would you even bring up TMNT’s finale? You say I always start drama, yet look what what you are trying to do. The only thing TMNT related that should be discussed on this thread is the repeats. Save the TMNT talk for Friday, when its ratings are released. Discussion over.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nathan My point exactly

  • Michael

    Gravity Falls is more popular than TMNT the
    Show has been getting 2 million ratings last episode ut got 2.2 million and Gravity falls way higher viewers
    Than they ever even had
    @Twist of Fate

  • Michael

    We will see
    @Twist of Fate

  • #bravod

    LOL I don’t start fights I speak truth. I am going to bring up the TMNT finale and compare it the GF finale because they both have big fan bases , and both are in their first season. And Nathan/ Twist of fate… Who brought up the Korra finale vs GLC special delivery episode last year and started a huge competition out of it?! HA!! CASE CLOSED

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Michael To be fair, yes the shows ratings ratings have been low the past 2 episodes. But if you have been paying attention, the 1st TMNT premiere went up against TBM, which scored well over 4 million viewers. The 2nd episode was aired COMPLETELY by itself on an island of repeats. It lead-in was a Sanjay and Craig repeat which only scored 1.9 million viewers. This Thursday it has a SBSP special as a lead-in which will do much better

  • #bravod

    Amazing numbers for Sofia The First as well! Sofia slays the competition when it comes to preschool shows! Disney Junior is REALLY strong. And AMAZING numbers for Dog with a blog! It’s a cute show. A bit corny but full of heart. The numbers speak for themselves

  • Twist Of Fate

    @bravo The Korra vs GLC specials was brought up because both were in the Cable 25. It wasn’t just brought up out of nowhere. Case Closed

  • #bravod

    Twist of Fate excuses excuses excuses! There is only so many times you Nick fans can blame bad numbers on scheduling and blah blah blah! When a Disney Show scores low ratings, everyone glorifies and points it out, and we Disney fans OWN it! But when does low (most of the time LOl), it’s all this or that.

    Like seriously, you guys make excuses for everything! Ex: this did bad because Disney aired a encore of TBM.. Bad Disney. Like LOL! Or this did bad because a new movie came out in theaters HA. Stop the excuses and OWN it

  • #bravod

    Twist of fate, NO NO NO. Go back to the rating threads of last year. There was a whole thing going on prior to the cable top 25! About two weeks b4 both premiered, there were Disney and Nick fans battling it out saying that their show is gonna do better! Remember!? #LOL

  • Twist Of Fate

    @bravo Excuse.!?! Competition is a very real thing. If those weren’t the reason for the low ratings, tell me why Fridays repeat scored higher than both Hmm

  • #bravod

    “But when does low (most of the time LOL), it’s all this or that>> comment about nickelodeons ratings

  • Twist Of Fate

    Let me guess, IT WAS SPONGEBOB.!! SpongeBob is the only reason ANYTHING on Nick does well wahh wahh wahh blah blah blah

  • #bravod

    Disney’s Friday shows go up against movie premieres every week! Movie are released in theaters every Friday, and Disney shows go head to head with them! And Sunday is the toughest day on TV ( competition wise) every channel has new shows on Sunday! Disney has tons and tons of competition

  • Michael

    @Twist of Fate I have never seen TMNT get a
    4.0 million viewers and I really think it’s dumb how Nick schedules
    Their animated shows if it were at night all the
    Animated shows would get better ratings

  • Twist Of Fate

    Disney shows do not go up against big time movies every week. Despicable Me, Smurfs, and Monsters University are the only legit competition Nick or Disney have gone up against this summer and neither channel did well against them. And Sundays are competitive with adult networks such as FOX not Nick and Disney

  • Twist Of Fate

    That’s like saying The Hangover 2 is going to draw in Disney’s audience

  • #bravod

    Michael agreed! Nick should take their morning cartoons, put them at night and just let Spongebob repeats on at Sat morning, Spongebob is already 80% of the channel nights as well make it 90%. Better yet, change the channels name to SPONGENICK! Lol, I actually like that!!

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Michael No it hasn’t but TMNT has come close numerous times. I’m not expecting monster numbers for TMNT’s finale as the show hasn’t fallen off a bit since Spring but I wouldn’t be shocked if it score 4 million+

  • #bravod

    Twist of Fate, Disney has done amazing this summer! Get your facts!! And many kids watch all types of moves, you’d be surprised
