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).

    Wander Over Yonder-3.5-4.5

  • Nick

    You are a fool twist of fate. Nickelodeon will not destroy Disney in the fall. What evidence do you base that on? That’s right. No evidence. And it’s your subjective opinion about How to Rock. It’s not factual the stuff you are spewing.

    Shake it Up the week Swindle premieres is new as well and Shake it Up is airing the same times as the VMA’s on MTV and Sunday Night Football and it will likely do better then Swindle.

  • frenchfrie

    How is Nick going to turn things around in the fall? I keep hearing they will but besides some shows coming back what makes you think the ratings will go up months later and improve upon what they have already been getting?

  • Nick

    Exactly Frenchfrie. It’s just blind hope and praying by twist of fate. Heck it will take a twist of fate for Nickelodeon to turn things around.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nick I’m not a fool I’m just being realistic. Early this year Nick consistently winning the weeks with total viewers and k2-11 despite only having 2 shows performing well, SpongeBob and TMNT. Now with all the hits its managed to create airing at once its only gonna get worse for Disney. And you moron my comment about no one caring about HTR is based on the horrid ratings.

  • jamie

    @Twist Of Fate, before you start calling people morons, get your facts straight. Nickelodeon clearly has no hits on it’s network now. And “How To Rock” was doing well in the ratings until Sickelodeon started two month long hiatus and then cancelled it. “Haunted Hathaways” is next.

  • jamie

    Good to see Breaking Bad and Rizzoli and Isles doing well too.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @jamie Before you continue to troll get you’re facts straight. Korra, SBSP, FOP, Sanjay & Craig, & TMNT all average at or above 3 million viewers so yeah Nick has plenty of hit shows. And I don’t care if you’re talking about live-action because the live-action shows on Nick haven’t done well in years, Nicktoons do very well on Nick. And scoring in the lower to mid 2 millions is not well by any means. And Btw, FOP was on hiatus for 15 months and still did well upon its return, a little 2 month hiatus didn’t hurt HTR, HTR just wasn’t popular

  • Twist Of Fate

    And its funny how you mentioned me calling him a moron but completely disregard him calling me a fool

  • Nick

    LOL. iCarly was doing well a few years ago so lol at you saying they have not had any live action hits in years…you are so full of it.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Nick I’m definitely talking about new live-action hits so what’s the excuse now. You and Jamie have some obsession with cruddy live-action shows

  • Twist Of Fate

    By “in years” I’m talking about 2010 with Victorious being the last new live-action hit on Nick. Once again Nick does not need cheesy sitcoms to be successful, the Nicktoons are doing fine on their own

  • Twist Of Fate

    Btw, Korra Book 2 is premiering Friday, September 13th @ 7PM

  • jim

    It’s weird that, in these silly Nick vs. Disney arguments, no one seems to notice that Disney’s only ranking shows are on versus Nick at Nite (not Nick.) When Nick and Disney are both on, they have the same ratings.

    ..now someone please explain Dog with a Blog? Disney should be embarrassed.

  • s9o

    Well, it usually does bad, but only being 260,000 viewers from 25th wouldn’t be too bad for Disney.
