    Well, the Disney Channel holiday special didn’t do so well, but Andi Mack did well!


  2. Martin

    Do you have the Loud House at 7 pm on Nicktoons and TeenNick?


  3. Jay

    Hi Mitch, now that fractional is the new normal. The ratings are already provided at two decimal points for the cable shows. Can we start getting the broadcast chart also showing two decimal points at some point in the near future?
    Thanks
