    i wish sam and cat would make the list.

  • Nathan

    Well..it looks like both networks didn’t have a great week..

  • Nathan

    Someone please explain to me that how a horrible show like Shake It Up made this list, yet great shows like Gravity Falls, Good Luck Charlie, Sam & Cat, etc didn’t make the list?

  • sac

    When is TNT going to renew R&I??? Seems like a no brainer.

  • 90s

    I am surprised how weak Disney’s original show premieres have been recently. Although they have their strong weeks, overall, 2013 has not been all that great for Disney compared to previous years. And I actually feel for GLC. In it’s final season and WAY down in the ratings.

  • Michael

    wow look how from a 2.7 million to a 2.8 million of
    GLC and Austin and ally then shake it uo scores 3.3 million @Nathan I bet disney regrets cancelling it

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nathan Ikr

  • AJ


    Cuz GLC is on the DEATH SLOT… It shouldn’t be on @ 7:30 :'(

  • Twist Of Fate

    @AJ Well it was in the 8PM slot this week and it didn’t help

  • Michael

    Yeah but for this GLC was at 8PM @AJ

  • joanne

    @nathan clearly 3.3 million people dont think shake it up is horrible, that’s that, and @Michael Shake it Up clearly had to end Bella thorn has 3 movies including a Walt Disney Movie she is filming and zendaya is filming a Disney Channel Movie as well, so disney channel does not have scheduling for another season Time is Money

  • joanne

    i love Good Luck Charlie, but the plots has been samie, not really anything special, just like the current episode which has just aired, and charlie hasnt done well with with the 7:30 slot or the new 8:00 slot, so clearly its the show, the fact that 3.3 million poeple would stay up to watch shake it up means something

  • Twist Of Fate

    This just goes to show SIU has an extremely lack of an older audience. Despite doing much better than A&A and GLC which made the Sunday list but SIU couldn’t

  • AllOfHerTwist

    cable viewership

    But viewership doesn’t matter, only ratings?

  • sac

    I do not believe the demo is the same for cable as it is as important to broadcast. Cable channels have different demos they go after

  • joanne

    I doubt disney is looking for older audience for shake it up, they are like 15, 16, austin and ally and good luck charlie has a way older cast and older people watch it, disney channel has a target for each show and clearly shake it up is getting it but sadly everyone else is not getting it for some reason

  • Jon23812

    Considering Disney doesn’t like SIU, it’s weird that they let them get high viewership. You’d think they’d try better to screw it over, so they’ll have a good excuse for canceling it.

  • Nathan

    Nick just sent out a PR, Sam & Cat premiered to 2.9 million viewers (the official numbers will come soon, because it is likely Nick rounded up)

  • Rob

    While NASCAR’s #2 rank is certainly impressive, what makes its audience size even more noteworthy is the fact that it occurred on Sunday afternoon, when viewing levels are so much lower than primetime. Perhaps BTN could obtain share of viewing info from one of its sources that would clearly illustrate this point?

  • TV Addict

    TBBT is on there six times?? Really? I can’t wait for September when Community wins every week with its syndication deal with Comedy Central!!!! It will be ratings dynamite!!!!!!!!! (I can dream, can’t I?)
