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

  1. i luv nickelodeon

    I love toy story 3.! I just didn’t watch it on disney channel cuz I don’t like helping disney channel lol.. It did great anyways.! Adventure time made the list.! Congrats Cartoon Network :D . No suprise on spongebob lol.. That show is unbeatable.. Go Nick and CN :D

  2. Melvin

    It is a bit say (in my view) that you wouldn’t watch a movie especially as good as toy story 3 just because of ratings. if a programme is shown on a network nick or Disney channel I would watch despite the rivalry. But that’s my view

  3. Nathan (NR2012)

    @i luv nickelodeon @Melvin If you don’t have the Nielsen set top box, you don’t count in the viewer numbers, or ratings, or whatever you call it. So you aren’t helping Disney even if you’re watching their shows WITHOUT a nielsen box. Do you get what i’m saying?

  4. Melvin

    I meant to say sad

  5. Melvin

    @Nathan I know what your saying but I do think you should not watch a show just because of the channel it’s on

  6. Melvin

    Sorry typing on my phone causes sell check and chane things I meant to say @nathan people shouldn’t say I’m not going to watch toy story 3 because it’s on Disney channel

  7. i luv nickelodeon

    I have the movie anyways..(:

  8. disney rocks

    Go Disney! Go Toy Story 3! I love Toy Story 3! It looks like Nick and Disney tied for number of entries in top 25, with both having 3

  9. ingmarhappy

    Good for Closer!

  10. Kaylie

    I think I know why Robot & Monster didnt make 3 million viewers. But Nick & Disney both did well anyway. So happy for Toy Story 3.
