  • Twist Of Fate

    @bravo Okay lets change Disney Channel into Good Luck Disney when Korra comes back and trashes our lineup

  • Twist Of Fate

    Disney honestly has not done that well other than TBM and Flash Forward. Before that, many of its shows were premiering under 3 million

  • Twist Of Fate

    And it’s funny how you Disney fans talk about how awesome Disney is doing but fail to mention Nick has not had a full slate of premieres yet this summer. We’ll see whos winning come this fall when Korra, TMNT, SBSP, FOP, Sanjay and Craig, Sam and Cat, Etc are all premiering together

  • Amy

    Why can’t Disney and Nick Fans get along? :/

  • Michael

    I expected the same for GF didn’t happen :/
    Lets just see TMNT @Twist of Fate

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Michael Honestly, I don’t really expect TMNT to score 4 million+ due to Nick’s lazy scheduling on the last 2 eps, but it wouldn’t surprise me. 3.6 sounds right to me

  • #bravod

    Twist of Fate, and how has Nick done this summer?

  • #bravod

    “I don’t really expect TMNT to score 4million + due to Nicks lazy scheduling” EXCUSE

  • Twist Of Fate

    @bravo How many shows have Nick had premiere this summer. There were a few FOP’s in June which all score over 3 million viewers. A few Sanjay and Craig’s which all score around 3 million. A few Sam and Cat’s which have been mostly over 3 million and The Haunted Hathaways. Keep in mind these shows have not premiered all at once, they’ve been aired separately. Ask me again when Sanjay and Craig, SBSP, TMNT, Korra, Sam and Cat, THH, Etc are all airing at once.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @bravo TMNT has been placed In the 11am slot in an island of repeats after being on hiatus for 3 months. Yes, bad scheduling

  • #bravod

    And Disney has been number 1 this summer in every demo, Jessie, Austin and Ally, and Shake it Up have been on fire. Flash Foward Weekend did great and of course TEEN BEACH MOVIE! Liv and Maddie series preview did stellar, and Gravity Falls ended strong! ANT Farm is doing well in its revival season, and we still have Mission Marvel, Wander over Yonder, and the DWAB finale!

  • coolioni

    Continuum did pretty good again. too bad total viewers went down a bit.
    Then again its on syFy so I dont really expect much.

    This weeks story was really cool.
    I loved the ending when Kiera could not decide weather she did the right thing by not killing Alec’s brother.

    The acting this episode seemed a little weak for some reason.
    normally its pretty darn good for being a Canadain import.

    I still love the show and I am loving this season so far!

  • #bravod

    Twist of Fate, then Its also fair to say the that Disney has done bad scheduling for GLC, putting it in a death slot, (7:30) and then also airing episodes @ 8! And last week, DWAB scored 2.3 mil at 7:30, yet Nick fans were so happy to point that out, but didn’t point out Disney’s “bad” scheduling

  • Twist Of Fate

    Once again, Nick has had very little to offer so Disney should be #1 cause its entire lineup has been consistently premiering. Try and say that in a month when Nick has more than Sam and Cat. And yeah Ant Farm is doing so well it couldn’t even make the list. Mission Marvel is tough to gauge ratings wise. P&F has lost boatloads of popularity and had been under 3 million nearly all summer despite having a usually strong Jessie lead-in. I could care less about DwAB or WoY

  • Twist Of Fate

    @bravo Yes, GLC has been badly scheduled, but it is likely because they don’t want to air SIU at a late 9:30 slot which makes some sense. Nick is just waiting till Fall to release content

  • #bravod

    All I can say is ratings and numbers speak for themselves! Case closed…class dismissed!!!

  • Twist Of Fate

    I never pointed out DWAB’s low numbers at 7:30. But as for DWAB, the ratings should be higher considering it’s sandwiched between some of Disney’s top two shows. It was the only Sunday premiere that wasn’t in the Cable 25. But TMNT has been scheduled much worse than GLC. TMNT had NO premieres for THREE months and got brought back to an island of repeats. Not an excuse, fact

  • Twist Of Fate

    And okay the ratings will speak for themselves on Friday when TMNT’s ratings come out.

  • Jon23812

    @Twist of Fate, Since Disney doesn’t like Shake it Up, they can just swap GLC and SIU. Or better yet, movie DWAB to the 7:30 slot, since that’s the only bad show on the Sunday line-up.

  • Twist Of Fate

    I apologize for all those who could care less about the Nick/Disney feud. It’s an issue which probably won’t end any time soon
