[size=16]“Legend of Korra” Book 2 Getting Off to Low Start[/size]

[quote]The highly anticipated return of The Legend of Korra is off to a very soft start in its first two weeks back. Both episodes have scored series lows, with the hour-long return on September 13 scoring 2.600 million total viewers. This past Friday’s new episode was even lower – with 2.191 million.

The series’ first book aired from April to June 2012 and scored between 4.548 million for its highest during the series premiere and 2.976 million at its lowest in early June. Book one aired on Saturday mornings at 11am, while book two has relocated to Friday nights at 7pm.

Korra isn’t alone. Nick’s other series are struggling to reach decent ratings. Last week’s new Sam & Cat scored 2.331 million viewers and newer series The Haunted Hathaways dropped to 1.896 million. Even Sanjay and Craig returned from a break to 2.378 million viewers on September 14. Korra was the 7th most watched program for the week ending September 15 on Nick – behind six SpongeBob repeats. September 21 and 22 ratings haven’t been released yet, but with Nick’s Worldwide Day of Play on Saturday, they are sure to be down even more than normal.[/quote]

Gotta admit there’s way to much bitching going on in Korra but that aside, the network overall seems to be having some problems gaining traction. Not good.

[size=16]Nickelodeon Renews “Breadwinners” for Season Two[/size]


20-Episode Pick-Up for the Booty Shakin’ Duck Tales

BURBANK, Calif.-May 8, 2014 – A second season is in the oven for Nickelodeon’s Breadwinners, a popular animated series that ranks #1 in its Saturday 11:00a.m. time slot with Kids 2-11/6-11 and Boys 2-11/6-11. The announcement was made today by Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production. The outrageous comedy series, filled with infectious music and boundless energy, follows two quazy ducks who never give up on delivering bread to hungry beaks everywhere in their jet-fueled rocket van. The series will make its season one debut on the network’s international channels this fall.

“The popularity and success of Breadwinners is a testament to our commitment to creator-driven animation,” Hicks said. “We’re thrilled to bring our audience another season of this great show as part of our continued pledge to building our pipeline of original animation.”

The 20-episode order continues with more of SwaySway and Buhdeuce’s wild and quazy adventures aided by their trusted allies: the Bread Maker, Ketta, T-Midi and Jelly. As SwaySway and Buhdeuce delve deeper into the expansive world of Pondgea, they dodge more menacing monsters, discover new magical breads, and meet more riduckulous customers along the way. No matter what, this duck duo will keep moving to the beat and getting bread up in yo beak!

Nickelodeon closed April as the top basic cable net in total day with Kids 2-11 (2.7/872K, up +4% versus a year ago) and total viewers (1.6M), securing its fourth straight monthly win driven by its hit animation and preschool roster.[/quote]


[size=16]Nick Renews “Sanjay and Craig” for Third Season[/size]

[quote]Ahead of the second season even premiering on television next month, Nickelodeon has renewed their animated comedy Sanjay and Craig for a third season of 20 episodes. This will bring the series to 60 total episodes, after only premiering a little over one year ago (May 25, 2013).
The full press release from Nick follows:
BURBANK, Calif.–June 11, 2014–Nickelodeon greenlights athird season of its hit animated series Sanjay and Craig with a 20-episode order. It was announced today by Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon. The original series follows the misadventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy and his best friend Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise. New episodes from season two will debut this summer on Nickelodeon, with season two set to roll out internationally this fall.
Year to date, new episode premieres of Sanjay and Craig average a 4.9/1.6M with Kids 2-11 and 3 million total viewers. It is also the #2 animated show across all TV with Kids 2-11, behind SpongeBob SquarePants. The series premiered on Nickelodeon’s international channel in September 2013, and is seen in more than 120 countries and territories around the world via the Nickelodeon channels and syndication. The show ranked as a top 5 program among Kids 4-14 in its time slot vs. other kids’ channels in key international markets including Australia, Brazil, Germany, Spain, Poland, Hungary and South Africa. In CQ1’14, Sanjay and Craig reached more than 18 million viewers across 11 countries including Australia, Brazil, Germany, Spain, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, United Kingdom and South Africa.
“When Sanjay and Craig was first brought to us and was described as being about two best friends, with one that just happens to be a snake, we knew that it had the makings of a great Nickelodeon cartoon,” said Hicks. “This show is connecting with kids because our creators had a great vision and they are telling stories that our audience relates to and that are just flat out funny with a lot of heart.”
The third season will continue to draw from real kid experiences as inspiration for Sanjay and Craig’s many crazy adventures. The series will build upon the growing collection of cool and eclectic music, while featuring more half-hour specials, including a holiday episode, filled with weird and funny epic journeys that Sanjay, Craig, and best friends Hector and Megan pursue.

[size=16]New Website Design Launches[/size]

[quote] launched a new fully responsive redesigned website. The new design matches the Nick App with its sliding abilities and is made to work smoothly across all devices.

Much has changed with the redesign, including access to show pages, videos, full episodes and more. Videos and galleries now display in full-screen mode by default with content overlaying when the curse floats on top. The site also features a fun “Do Not Touch” button – which they obviously want you to touch/click!

A beta version of the site soft launched a few weeks ago. Thus far, all of the other Nick-related network websites remain the same. however does redirect to its new show page on instead of standing alone.

This is the first major site redesign since Nickelodeon changed their logo in September 2009 and relaunched all their branded websites accordingly.[/quote]

[size=15]Animated Web Series “Welcome to the Wayne” Coming to[/size]

[quote]Along with the new website comes a new digital animated web series, Welcome to the Wayne.

Announced in March at this year’s upfront presentation, Welcome to the Wayne was picked-up for six half-hour episodes. New episodes will roll-out weekly on and the Nick App on Mondays, presumably starting next week. You can see a preview now on the website.

“Follow the adventures of Olly Timbers and Ansi Molina, two ten-year-olds exploring their wild and wacky apartment building, The Wayne. Will they survive this unbelievable afternoon? Join along for the ups and downs of their budding friendship—and narrow escape from the clutches of the Spy from apartment 8-I—as you get to know the endless, unpredictable world of the Wayne and its rather… unique tenants.”

The series was created and written by Billy Lopez (The Wonder Pets)[/quote]


[size=6]Nick Greenlights Short “Cupcakery of Doom” from Comic-Con Pitch[/size]

Get ready people. A barrage of changes coming your way.


On the preschool side of Nicktoons…

CatDog – Two half-hour episodes have still never seen the light of day on U.S. television. However, they have been released through DVD and on digital platforms (like Amazon Instant Video).

•Noah Knows Best – As noted above, five episodes remain unaired and are likely never going to be shown or released.

•As Told By Ginger – Eight half-hours remain unaired on U.S. television. Those include five high-school centered episodes and a 90-minute movie finale. That movie (“The Wedding Frame”) was released on DVD in 2004, but the other five episodes have not been. They all have aired for certain in other countries, including on Nick Canada just this past month.

•The X’s – Strangely, one episode (“Theater of War / Breaking Camp”) of this one-season wonder never aired on Nick or Nicktoons. It did in international markets.

•My Family’s Got GUTS – A second season of 12 episodes never aired in America, while it has at least aired in Australia.

•The Penguins of Madagascar – Nick still sits on four-and-a-half half-hours of this series. It aired in reruns on Nicktoons up to this past month, but these episodes, which include a much-touted at the time Big Time Rush voice-over episode as well as a Conan O’Brien-voiced episode, still haven’t aired. As is the case with others, these episodes have aired internationally.

•T.U.F.F. Puppy – Here’s a case where Nick over-ordered episodes on a show they had no intentions of airing to completion. 35 episodes aired on Nick before the network switched it over to Nicktoons last fall, where it has aired 18 episodes. Seven half-hours from season three are still waiting to be shown.

•Winx Club – Nick hasn’t aired 18 episodes from season six. Eight of them did air on for a short time this May, but they haven’t been seen on TV yet. Though, Nick US looks to be done with this show altogether.

•You Gotta See This – Nick made 20 episodes of this hosted clip series but only aired eight on the main network in 2012, four on Nicktoons this past April Fools Day, and sits on eight episodes left to be aired.

•Robot and Monster – After Nick waited so long to finally premiere this show, then blasted new episodes out so quick in the second half of 2012, there are two half-hours still waiting to be seen. The show airs daily on Nicktoons, so I’m not sure what they’re waiting for. Two other unaired-on-Nick half-hours did premiere on Nicktoons in the past year, so there’s hope.

•Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness – While still recent, it’s only a matter of time before this series falls into this list like the others. 10 episodes remain to air and the main Nick channel doesn’t air it at all currently, while Nicktoons airs the show multiple times every day.

•Webheads – 18 episodes of this summer’s short-lived game show remain to be seen.

Of course Nick has also waited a length of time between when a series was at its prime to a time where no one cared, to finally air episodes – either on the main network, Nicktoons or TeenNick. Those include:

•The Ren & Stimpy Show – This show has its own sorted history, but it’s safe to say a number of episodes never aired on Nickelodeon, Nicktoons or TeenNick. Why? Content. “Man’s Best Friend” is the best example of this. I’m honestly not versed in Ren & Stimpy history as well as some others are, but some episodes did end up airing for the first time on MTV, Spike TV or were seen through the show’s DVD release.

•The Angry Beavers – At least six episodes aired on Nicktoons only in 2006, and have since been release on DVD.

•All Grown Up – A gap of two years went between major chunks of episodes before Nick blasted 14 unaired episodes out on weekday mornings in 2007 and aired the final three in summer 2008.

•Invader ZIM – Like Ren & Stimpy, ZIM had a sorted history with the network – albeit shorter. Six-and-a-half half-hour episodes didn’t originally air on Nick during the shows 2001-2002 run. They were first released on DVD in 2004 and ended up premiering on TV in 2006 on Nicktoons Network. Many episodes also went unfinished in production, with seven of them having audio recordings available on the 2004 DVD sets.

•ChalkZone – Three years passed by before Nick aired the last six episodes in summer 2008 during the 6am hour.

•My Life as a Teenage Robot – A whole season of 12 episodes waited three years to finally rollout first on Nicktoons in 2008. Nick did air 11 of them the day after their Nicktoons debut, but for some reason didn’t bother to air the last episode.

•Mr. Meaty – They waited more than a year after Nick aired its last new episode before the final eight episodes aired on Nicktoons.

•Back at the Barnyard – Five-and-a-half episodes aired on Nicktoons a year after Nick gave up on it.

•The Mighty B! – A massive 13.5 episodes ended up airing on Nicktoons only, after Nick no longer cared for it.

•Making Fiends – This show was originally intended for Nick but was buried on Nicktoons for its short 6 episodes.

•Rugrats: Pre-School Daze – These four half-hour specials aired in 2008 on Nick during the early weekend mornings, despite the fact that they were produced and first released on DVD sets years before.

•Random! Cartoons – Like Making Fiends, this was pushed to Nicktoons-only where it premiered its 13 episodes.

•The Troop – Over a year after Nick stopped airing the show, the final seven episodes aired on Nicktoons, four in October 2012 and three in May 2013.

•BrainSurge – Nick waited almost three years to air the final 10 episodes of the “Family BrainSurge” season this past May on Nicktoons.

•Fanboy & Chum Chum – A large 15 episodes were burned out on weekday mornings before one last episode went unaired for two years, before finally airing this past summer on Nicktoons.

•Planet Sheen – Only 10.5 of Sheen’s 26 episodes ever aired on Nick, before it was shifted to Nicktoons in 2012 for the rest of its run.

•Bucket & Skinner’s Epic Adventures – Eight episodes were never aired on Nick but finally aired in spring 2013 on TeenNick.

•The Legend of Korra – We all know the travesty done to this excellent series, but at least it has been seen online and hopefully will finish airing on Nicktoons as well.

One thing is sure clear. Watch Nickelodeon (main channel) at your own risk. They make it so damn impossible to watch ANYTHING. This is why I’m sticking with Nicktoons (the channel). I had no idea about any of this personally.

•The Ren & Stimpy Show – This show has its own sorted history,[/quote]
Seriously? Who writes this? “…sorted history…”

Controversies is how I read into that. I don’t understand why the content is a problem for TeenNick. Strict standards.

Full schedule inside. I can’t copy and paste it for some reason.
