  • Dylan

    Is Korra not being listed right? Under a .2?

  • Baseball4Ever

    I LOVE BASEBALL….

  • #bravod

    Disney did well. Ant farm got exactly the same it did last year for its Halloween episode. Dog with a blog did as well as Jessie, so good

  • Nate

    Wander over yonder is performing bad for Disney!
    DWAB Did well finally! (For season 2)
    Ant Farm is Ant Farm with same as last year
    Hopefully Jessie did good on Satardat along with All the Disney shows on Sunday
    Night

  • Martin

    Haven is doing decently enough in the ratings to warrant a Season 5!! renewal, although am annoyed by the fact that Audrey Parker is still not back and we are stuck with Lexi.

  • Wright

    Haven!!!!

  • Gamma626

    Is that good for ghost adventures? Became a huge fan of the series over the summer, hoping it’s doing well.

  • Shepherd

    @Martin

    I hope you are right. I’d still like to see these numbers to the 1/100 before I could be sure; is Haven pulling .35s or .44s. Cancellations on SYFY can be hard for me to predict sometimes.

  • Brian

    Haven is doing the same ratings as last year.

  • Ser Tahu

    Does anyone have the numbers for Strike Back? Or for The White Queen and Hell on Wheels on saturday?

  • Jimmy Russell

    KORtanic

    NICK will cancel KORRA…

  • bobface

    Nick already screwed Korra by putting that show on Friday nights. So…why the hell not.

  • Shepherd

    @Dylann @ Jimmy Russell

    How many times must it be pointed out that this list comes from the top one hundred in the 25-54 demo. Korra could have a 2.0 in adults 18-49 and still not make this list if none of those viewers were not 25+. You’re also ignoring the fact that Nick’s advertisers care about other demos besides 18-49.

    Nick will not cancel Korra.

  • LISZ

    Legend of korra numbers?

  • name

    I find it hard to believe that Korra will have better numbers than the MLB playoffs let alone Smackdown…

  • charmedcraft

    After so many years, Charmed is still getting a ton of viewers. I never missed an episode when it was on, my kind of show.

  • NickelodeonL

    Dog With a Blog 3.5 millions viewers? Really? :/
    The Legend of Korra numbers please!

  • Shepherd

    @name

    “could”, as in a hypothetical situation. nm, if you can’t understand the meaning of ‘could’, chances are you don’t understand a word I’m saying.

    Good Luck getting numbers for Korra (honestly), I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Nick has gotten tired of being treated like people’s personal numbers slave.

  • Amy

    The Legend of Korra (8:30) – Nickelodeon
    1.103 million viewers, #25; 0.457 million adults 18-49 (0.4 rating), #19

  • Antonio

    Baseball is doing great … this years postseason is up 29% although they are competing with the NFL, college football, beginning of NHL & NBA, and new primetime network tv shows.

    At the beginning of the 1900s, the top 3 sports in America (in no order) was baseball, horse racing, and boxing

    Now its (in no order) baseball, football, and basketball
