    A poorly made movie like swindle did better than the premiere of Sam and cat, what a shame

    Jessie always beats the other Disney Shows.

  • John

    That’s because Jessie is the best Disney show, and it always gets high ratings.

    “A poorly made movie like swindle did better than the premiere of Sam and cat, what a shame”

    A shame is that you clearly are trolling because both Sam and Cat were in Swindle…oh and Sam & Cat did very well this weekend also.
