    Ok so if their channels have 0 views, it’s supposed to shutdown but what’s stopping them?

  2. Rox Media on October 8, 2021 at 8:34 am

    To summarize last year, it seems reruns farms were doing well with TLC being the exception and the hottest genre of pay-TV was news.
    StartTV had the biggest gain generally, owing to the recent allocation on Dish Network. INSP’s COO commented on the article Benzie was citing saying that they’re attracting "cord cuddlers" (as in: boomers hesitant to drop pay-TV). Comedy.TV’s increase comes from a recent allocation on DirecTV.
    Knowing how the old people are dominating cable whilst kids are more using something like Tubi, PlutoTV or Youtube (Youtube Kids is now bad for them due to the cheap Indian "Elsagate" cartoons), that’s sensible.

    What did MyNetworkTV actually get? I can’t seem to find it in the original list

  4. ClasheR's World on October 8, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Boomerang might be the leader of second tier kids networks in 2021

  5. Zan Goon on October 8, 2021 at 8:46 am

    Seeing the big 3 with the smallest amount of ratings is just sad

  6. icecream hero on October 8, 2021 at 8:47 am

    If you watch tv shows on the network apps, dose that count towards the ratings?

  7. thetoonman on October 8, 2021 at 8:51 am

    Can you make a video on MeTV’s Toon In With Me and their Saturday Morning cartoon block?

  8. Tajmir The Random Fan 2021 on October 8, 2021 at 8:53 am

    Cartoon Network is doing this to themselves, they should make room for old shows & thier Cartoons Cartoons.

  9. bagelcrisp on October 8, 2021 at 8:55 am

    here in the UK POP exceded growth as a kids channel as the disney channels shut down. but as a normal channel the bbc got it

  10. BlythePennyBicycle21 on October 8, 2021 at 8:56 am

    The Disney Junior channel dropped by 27% and the Nick Jr channel dropped by 17%. Their decreases were less than their parents networks.

  11. Henrimation on October 8, 2021 at 9:01 am

    Crazy how Adult Swim still has higher ratings than Cartoon Network. Though it does make sense.

  12. lilyofthefoxvalley on October 8, 2021 at 9:01 am

    Everything will keep dropping as more and more people drop cable. I myself was holding on to it for the sake of sports, but when I cut that out of my life this year, there was no reason to keep cable.

  13. NickClips on October 8, 2021 at 9:06 am

    Yeah Teennick and Nicktoons definitely noticed the drop they have, Zoey 101, Ahh Real Monsters, Stick Stickley, As Told By Ginger, Danny Phantom, The Mighty B, Invader Zim, CatDog, Rocket Power, and The Angry Beavers on their schedule

  14. Alex Paul on October 8, 2021 at 9:10 am

    this channel needs more attention

  15. Samuel B-1 on October 8, 2021 at 9:10 am

    At this point, The CW is going out the window, crazy that it gets worse ratings then some cable channels.

  16. icecream hero on October 8, 2021 at 9:18 am

    I watch Cartoon Network the most. I love TTG and Gumball one of my favorite cartoons in the world. I only watch Nick for Spongebob one of my favorite cartoons in the world. I never miss a new episode. On Disney Chanel and Disney XD I love watching Phineas and Ferb reruns and Gravity Falls reruns. Phineas and Ferb is one of my favorite cartoons in the world. I love Big CIty Greens that show is a laugh riot. Tilly and Grandma are the best characters. I like the Simpsons Maratons on FXX. I like to watch Adult Swim. The only good shows on Adult swim are shows not made buy Adult Swim. I watch for Family Guy, American Dad, and Bob’s Burgers. I watch new episodes of American Dad whenever they come out on TBS. I watch the new epsidoes of the Fox shows.

  17. Kung-E Muller on October 8, 2021 at 9:21 am

    Wow! Nick at Nite’s ratings have really dropped big time. Hey, maybe Nick at Nite will do a little bit better if it gets a late night talk show on board. I mean, come on. You said it yourself when you said that retro doesn’t rate, right?

    Dang, it felt like yesterday since we have one of these again.

  20. Northeast IL EAS and More on October 8, 2021 at 9:26 am

    Can you do a video about WGN America? They have rapidly shifted into a new national news network and are changing the name of the network to NewsNation to go with this

  21. Trevon Tobinson on October 8, 2021 at 9:26 am

    It’s almost the end of February and we still haven’t gotten Nickelodeon 2021 Year in review

  22. Edward Kelly on October 8, 2021 at 9:30 am

    TLC is okay I like Dr Pimple but My600LbLife has become bland compared to a few years ago.
