    Paw Patrol is a hit for Nickelodeon.

    Jessie is really inconsistent..

  • nick90s

    Was Jessie new?

  • Michael

    Disney is not on here?

  • Michael

    What the heck is paw patrol?
    How is that a hit for Nick?

  • Nathan

    @nick90’s
    Yes.

    @Michael
    It’s apart of their preschool lineup.

  • Brian

    Supernatural is still strong!

  • Michael

    Oopps thought that was a new kids show but
    I guess that’s good for preschool @Nathan

  • mathew

  • iCarly

    @Nathan, PAW Patrol is a Hit!!

  • Bill

    @ICsrly
    Don’t you mean Nickelodeon?

  • mathew

    @Bill
    Don’t you mean @iCarly?

  • Troy

    Strike back must be doing pretty bad, too bad, its a great show.

  • Dan S

    Strike Back is in it’s 3rd season on Cinemax so I’m not worried about its future. If it was on HBO drawing similar ratings then there would be room for concern. Continuum however I am worried about getting only 0.3

  • Bill

    @iCarly
    Sorry I got your username wrong.

  • What.

  • Michael

    Wow Ant farm did not do good it’s ratings are terrible
    Needs to be cancelled this “Season 3″
    Jessie has been steady with 3.5 million recently and
    Fish hooks did a really great different episode I actually sat and watched it but that’s a new high in a
    While recently since it’s horrible 2 millions

  • mathew

    @Michael noooooo ANT farm should get a 4th final season

  • trevor

    ANT FARM’s ratings have not been “terrible” – many of the new episodes have had OVER 3 million – which for leading off the night is good. And this is the last season for it – but three seasons is a good run for a Disney show with young kids. They grow up and out of the premise.

  • CM

    @trevor: Are you just speculating that ANT Farm will end after its current Season 3? That has not been announced, right?

  • Michael

    I may be wrong
    @trevor but ant farms ratings were terrible in season 2
    Can’t beleive it got renewed but for season 3
    I don’t see such a big change and I said terrible BC how Jessie rebounds
    To Ant farms ratings a 2.8 to a 3.5 million
