    Korra didn’t do nearly as well as did last season, but still 2.6 million is quite good for Nick and 0.8 in a Friday is not too shaby either

  • Jacob

    Jessie might be going face to face with Sam and cat
    I think it’s moving it to Satarday nights now that’s a first
    Now Disney plans to put programming o Saturdays now!

  • Jon23812

    @JacobYates, Season 2 of Invader ZIM was suppose to have 20 episodes, but Nick backed out, and only 7 of them were completed.

    @Nathan, Avatar: The Last Airbender is a serialized show, and Nick showed repeats when the show was still on.

  • Curtis

    For all you Korra fans, you do realize that Korra was the only thing premiering that night. TMNT will premiere later this month, and hopefully, the two series will compliment each other and help raise ratings. While I hope this is the case, truthfully, I feel that Nick should make a Saturday morning action block to combat Cartoon Network and knock it out to the water, especially since Disney does not air new programming on Saturday mornings. Think about it: Nick has Digimon, Power Rangers, Korra, and TMNT (if you want to also count Kung Fu Panda, that is to your discretion). Having a Saturday morning block after Sanjay and Craig would dominate. Plus, it would be easily marketable for Nick since they can promote a block instead of a separate series (although they should not stop doing that). Also, Nick needs to rerun Korra, which is a big problem if you think about it. One of the reasons I believe Green Lantern and Young Justice did not pick up more viewers before they went on their summer break is because Cartoon Network only reran their episodes in the same timeslot but on Sunday mornings, expecting viewers to watch it online. If Nick wants more people to tune it, as well as raise viewership, it needs to catch up fans by airing the previous episode at one or two timeslots where people can actually watch the show.

    All in all, the series did great in adult viewers. I think Korra did need more promotion, or at least a better companion series/lead-in than a repeat of a dull Spongebob episode. Like I said, hopefully either Korra and TMNT will bring ratings up on Friday or both shows will have their premieres on Saturday mornings (and do something with that abomination called Monsters vs. Aliens).

  • Nathan

    @Curtis
    I hate to ruin your great message, because you summed up everything pretty well, but TMNT is premiering next month. :P

  • AJ

    DAMNN!!! JESSIE DID AMAZING!!!

  • Kaylie

    @Kissan Hannah Montana regularly got 1.0s on their episodes.

  • Jimmy

    GHOST ADVENTURES used to be a fun show that the whole family could watch. Now…it’s really over-the-top with gore and an emphasis on questionable subject matter. Not surprised it’s languishing in the ratings.

  • Ryan Stoppable

    The Legend of Korra must have gotten killed in its demos if it only drew 2.6 million total on an 0.8. Unless A18-49 *is* its demo now…

  • Bella Bellini

    I hope Haven gains more viewers now that the last 3 seasons are streaming on Netflix. It’s a fantastic show. More people should watch!

  • tj

    Is that season premier bad for Haven? I caught the premier of season 3 and then went back and watched 1st 2 seasons, while on the 3rd. Never caught up with the ratings of the show though. Anyone?? Bueller?

  • Johnny

    That’s actually true @ryan if korra did a lot in demo which is 18-49 that means that the amount of children (who is the target audience ) is quite low

  • Johnny

    Nickelodeon shows which needs to be cancelled
    Sanjay and Craig
    Haunted Hathaways
    Monsters vs alien
    Spongebob
    Rabbits
    Robot and monsters
    Tuff puppy
    Basically stop these terrible animation and make more quality animation like tmnt and korra

  • Johnny

    Disney channel shows which needs to be cancelled
    Ant Farm
    Fish hooks
    Dog with a blog (as soon as possible)
    Basically Disney channel needs to make NORMAL shows like liv and maddie and Good Luck Charlie and the plots need to be better on Disney channel, I think every child is tired of listening to “be yourself” and “you can do anything if you believe” blah blah blah

  • Disnick

    @jacob I think the Jessie on Saturday is just for a monstober weekend

  • julia

    Haven’s ratings are a LOT higher than Being Human. I think Being Human got under 1 million viewers at least twice in season 3, it was still renewed for a season 4. 1.55 for Haven is really solid. The season 3 finale episode of Haven got 1.36 million viewers. So season 4 premiere grew on that to 1.55 viewers. This is similar to Haven’s season 3 ratings on average. Even higher.

    If Syfy still renewed Being Human for a season 4 when it was getting under 1 million viewers, they better renew Haven for a season 5 with higher ratings!!!!

  • scifi

    Haven is a flop.

  • JRealD

    Korra – Deserved. A disgrace to the Avatar the Last Airbender with awful writing.

  • TV Addict

    Idk what ratings Korra got last season when it aired midday, but a 0.8 on a Friday for a kids show is great, and it has already been renewed for like two more seasons, so it doesn’t really matter.

  • Disnick

    @tvaddict yes the demo is good but remember nickelodeon is a channel targeting 2-14 I think, so if more adults are watching a Kids show, it’s not really a good especially if more adults are watching a kids show than kids, and last season korra got mid 3 to mid 4 million views
