    1.1 million Korra? Goodbye

  • LISZ

    Nick is killing Legend of Korra! very sad

  • Michael

    NIckeloden is Obviously Failing with all of its shows

  • Ryan

    Uggggh, thanks a LOT Nickelodeon. Why couldn’t Korra have just stayed on Saturday morning?

  • Billiam

    Disappointed in Haven but they seem steady at 0.4. Hopefully, the total viewers will stay 1.5M or above and SyFy will get them another season. Otherwise, I’m sure it will be replaced with Reality TV that isn’t really SciFi. I’m really saddened at the way things have turned out with SyFy in the past 5 years. One of their best shows was Eureka and they had at least another year in it but they ended it too soon. I was sure Being Human would get cancelled with the steady 0.4 they were getting but looking back, they were likely renewed due to syndication.

  • trevor

    Michael – the above poster is right – Nick is falling fast. They don’t know what they are doing – when iCarly popped, they literally stopped trying and just threw all this money at Dan Schneider and said “give us more iCarly type shows” and that’s what happened. Just tired carbon copies and kids fled – Disney is kicking the Nick out of them. Sad but true.

  • One eye

    Korraaaaaaaaaaaa

    Having said that, I thought it was already renewed for a total of 4 seasons?

  • Alec

    @One eye

    Nick ordered a total of 52 episodes to air over 4 seasons.

    I feel Nick chose bad to have Korra on Fridays, they should’ve left it on Saturdays and shared the hour with TMNT.

    I doubt nick will cancel the show at this point because of all the money and time spent on the show. I heard they are making all 4 books back-to-back so production is well underway for all the books. If anything it’ll finish airing on Nicktoons but Nick should air the rest in the 8:30 timeslot then move it to Saturdays for Books 3 & 4

  • frenchfrie

    @trevor- True,but Everyone should know that Nick’s fall in ratings is due to new things and lots of the old things that have been pointed out for years. I would name a few new things that many people here probably haven’t heard about that has bought lots of bad publicity for a certain show but I think I’d go off topic with actress drama and various cancellation drama.

  • Gabriel

    Does anyone have the numbers for Cassadee Pope – Frame By Frame on CMT?

  • Teeveegirl

    Any numbers for Staten Island Law and Where Are They Now on OWN?

  • Toni

    Strike Back numbers

  • connie

    The schedule does not help the legend of korra .. I hate nickelodeon, I hate, i hate. The series is very popular because all this talk rigth now in this moment.

  • connie

    Exactly alec.. Nick has low ratings in all series. They can’t cancel korra. The schedule should be on Saturday night or in the morning .. not on Fridays!!! Nickelodeon, Nick, nivk… Why??

  • marvin

    clearly its a plan that nickelodeon made which didn’t work, Disney channel dominates on Fridays and Sundays, Nickelodeon dominates on a Saturday, what Nickelodeon did is to try and dominate on a Friday which clearly didn’t work. nickelodeon needs to stop this before nickelodeon will be overtaken by cartoon network

  • Robin

    wow nickelodeon completely killed korra. their like the kid version of the cw

  • Michael

    Nickelodeon killed All of its shows even Sam and cat which reached its first 1 million ratings with 1.9 NIckeloden is dead.

  • Amy

    Sam & Cat (8:00) – Nickelodeon
    1.972 million viewers, #15; 0.381 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #23
    The Haunted Hathaways (8:30) – Nickelodeon
    1.617 million viewers, #17; 0.305 million adults 18-49 (0.2 rating), #27

  • Michael

    “These days” MLB is too slow and the games are too long. America is much busier than 20 years ago and have too many other TV network options and social media/internet outlets to keep their interest. America will make time for football but not baseball unless baseball will: 1) Institute a “12 second pitch clock” – The pitcher needs to release the ball once it hits his glove from the catcher within 12 seconds or it will be an automatic “ball”. 2) The batter can’t ask for time in between pitches and can’t step out of the box between pitches, no exceptions. 3) Limit manager and catcher visits to the mound to twice per game each, similar to football timeouts, no exceptions. 4) If the batter has two strikes and hits a foul ball, he is out (I don’t think the purists are ready for this one but I am).
