    Disney channel should just show teen beach movie before every show premiere except dog with a blog, but u have a feeling dwab will do better in its new Friday slot that Sundays, it wont do the best it will be better than sundays

    Disney and Nick really need to get some better shows. In fact, I rarely watch Nick anymore. I wanted Sam & Cat to be a winner because I like both girls, but I just couldn’t sit through an episode. P&F must be getting tired and old hat if this is as good a rating they could get for Mission Marvel. Not even a follow up show with that lead in could make the top 25…Sheesh!!!

    Sam & Cat wasn’t new last week, and will return from its hiatus September 14.

    In other news, Bill & Robert haven’t been replying to any of my emails, and the ones sent from Tribune, an Zap2it..

    I knew Phineas and Ferb wouldn’t do GREAT. I did think around 4.5 mil, however the show is six years old, and these numbers are identical to their 2010 1-hour special, summer belongs to you.

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Lmao phinese and perb is no match for spongebob. When it comes face to face spongebob is way way better!!

  • jamie

    @i luv nickelodeon: says you.

  • nickrocks

    it’s the truth spongebob is the greatest; phineas and ferb and gravity falls are no match for spongebob. says everyone and the millions of people that still watch its repeats every time they air and the millions of more kids that adore the show

  • patrick

    @nickrocks spongebob isn’t even on here…
