There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

  • Bob

    Nickelodeon is a very long ways down from the days of icarly.

  • mathew

    sam and cat?

  • Brandy

    Good Luck Charlie and Liv and Maddie didn’t make the list. Neither Dog with a blog, ant farm, sam and cat, or haunted hathaways. I’m nervous on what all these got.

  • Joe

    I just don’t get how Duck Dynasty repeats rate so highly every week, especially the one right before the new episode which is a repeat of the previous week’s episode. Do people really watch it again? Is it just me, or is watching the same episode of a reality TV show more than once incredibly boring?

  • Twist Of Fate

    Sanjay and Craig did great. I really think its the next big cartoon hit. And yeah I’ve pretty much given up on Sam and Cat. It’s just not clicking with the audience

  • jamie

    Disney pretty much had repeats all week long except for Austin & Ally, so this is good. Nick is still struggling but good for Spongebob and S&C for making the top 25 this week.

  • frenchfrie

    @Jamie- S&C didn’t make it on the top 25 and it even had returning guest stars from a previous episode.

  • Nathan

    He/she was talking about Sanjay & Craig, not Sam & Cat.

  • frenchfrie

    @Nathan Ok, My bad.Sorry for the mix up Jamie.

  • Amy

    LIV AND MADDIE DSNY 8:00 PM 3.004 0.5
    Good Luck Charlie DSNY 7:30 PM 2.793 0.5

  • NickelodeonL

    Yes! Sanjay and Craig & Spongebob back on top! go Nickelodeon :))

  • frenchfrie

    Any word yet on ratings for shows that don’t show up on the top 25?

  • Twist Of Fate

    With Korra and Sam and Cat bombing, and FOP and TMNT on hiatus, SBSP and Sanjay and Craig are all that’s keeping Nick together right now. Its great to see a Nick show other than SBSP make the list

  • dame

    Why does Disney channel this cartoons will do well after 9:00 which child would want to see fish hooks at 9:30, still happy more than two million saw it, and Sanjay and Craig is not the next big thing, calling a show the next big thing is a show which does well without Spongbob as a lead in

  • Volan

    nickelodeon should move Korra to saturdays morning and take top this list again.

  • Nathan

    Dame, if you were smart, you’d know that Gravity Falls has done well many times when it aired during the 9:00 hour. Also, Sanjay and Craig could be Nick’s next big toon. The ratings are good and it actually has done well without a new episode of Spongebob, viewers obviously like it if they are staying tuned to watch the next new episode. Also, the show actually doesn’t have a bad drop off rate from Spongebob.

    Sam & Cat and Haunted Hathaways will likely get canceled if those low ratings continue, but Sam and Cat’s viewers are actually staying tuned into Hathaways, unlike Victorious’ viewers who left after Marvin aired. Nick has a good pairing, but low ratings.

  • frenchfrie

    Nickelodeon must regret extending S&C for 20 more episodes.Now they are stuck with a flop unless a miracle happens.

  • MT

    its nice to see The Kardashians are not on the list, I am beginning to have faith in the choices people make again.
