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).

  • Nick

    You call that a hit? Seriously?

  • jamie

    @Nick, exactly. With the ratings S&C and Haunted Hathaways have, both should be cancelled. I mean, How To Rock and Victorious had the same, if not higher ratings at this point and both got cancelled a year ago. Sickelodeon doubling “Sam and Cat”‘s episode order just reeks of desperation and I bet they regret that decision now.

  • #bravod

    Sam and Cat’s ratings are scary. And the haunted Hathaways is gone with the wind. Nick has to be scared about their live action programming. This is really bad LOL

  • #bravod

    Jessie does so good! I can’t believe a 9:30 repeat on Sunday beat a new Sam and Cat, Haunted Hathaways, Austin and Ally, Ant Farm, Dog With a blog. And good for DWAB and A&A staying over 3 million even against the teen choice awards

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nick @Jamie It’s funny how you mention Sam and Cat and completely ignore all the other shows I mentioned. What about Korra, Sanjay and Craig, FOP, SBSP, and TMNT.?

  • nickrocks

    I hope to god nickelodeon turns it around in the fall because at this point it doesn’t look to good for them. There’s no doubt that the people working there are idiots who have no idea what they are doing. For some stupid reason they are holding off airing new episodes of their flagship show, SpongeBob, for no reason, and I think airing new episodes of that will help increase ratings a little bit. whatever though there’s no hope. (atleast until korra)

  • nickrocks

    is there a difference between @Jamie and @jamie (notice the capital J) because the @Jamie was making sensible comments the past couple weeks but the moment the @jamie (troll by the way) comes in, sensible comments are lost in the wind

  • Nick

    All those are Animation. We’re talking live action here. Also, Disney still is number 1 regardless of ratings.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @nickrocks Relax, Nick knows what there doing….for once. There holding everything until fall so when the school year rolls around they can destroy Disney. A lot is planned this fall. A SBSP special, Korra Season 2, a Sam and Cat special, not to mention TMNT, Sanjay and Craig, & FOP returning from hiatus

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nick No, you’re talking about live-action. Nick only has 2 live-action shows anyway. That’s not what the channel is focused on. And Disney is #1 in what??

  • nickrocks

    @Twist Of Fate, if you say so, but only time will tell i guess.

  • Amy

    how do you guys think swindle will do?

  • nickrocks

    @Twist Of Fate apparently Disney is number one just in general. However I will make this point, if you consider the history of the two networks, disney will never be number one especially when compared to the great history of nickelodeon. While it’s not good to rest on one’s laurels, nickelodeon has a great history of great shows and ratings that you have to consider. Yes it’s going in a slump right now but to me, someone who is older, most of the shows on both nick and disney are pure crap anyway. I mean give me Kim Possible, That’s so Raven, Drake and Josh, early iCarly, etc. anyday over the crap that calls itself television airing on both networks today. But i guess it’s what the kids today like, how sad.

  • nickrocks

    *most of the shows on nick and disney TODAY are pure crap anyway.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @amy I wish I could make a clear prediction but its tough. Promotion has been decent but two of the leading stars are from HTR which may turn off some viewers. My prediction 3.5-4.6 million viewers

  • nickrocks

    @amy/ @twist, probably along the same lines as Nicky Deuce

  • Twist Of Fate

    Nicky Deuce premiered under 2 million, didn’t it.? I don’t think Swindle will do that bad because Nick has actually promoted Swindle, unlike Nicky Deuce

  • jamie

    @Twist of Fate and the other two stars are from S&C which also might turn off some viewers. I think 3-3.5 million viewers for Swindle’s premiere.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Jamie Oh my god FACE IT nobody likes HTR get over it

  • Michael

    How do you guys think Wander over yonder
    Will premiere it’s a new show next to Mission
    Marvel
