    Mitch, do you have Loud House at 5pm on Nickelodeon? Thanks!


    • Mitch Salem

      That was a rerun.


      • Tenter

        That is NOT a rerun. Loud House HAD new episode at 5PM-5:15PM on Nick!


      • Tenter

        how can you say that is a rerun?? i mean mitch, you have no problem posting Loud House ratings when it comes to new episodes especially for airing daily, and that show never has been scoring that low in ratings. How is this different? Unless Nickelodeon never sends out full March premieres in advance?


      • Amaury

        Mitch, I can confirm there was a *new* The Loud House episode yesterday at that time. The network made a labeling mistake.

        @Tenter: Don’t yell at Mitch. It’s not his fault. Showbuzz Daily doesn’t post rerun numbers, and if a network labels something a rerun, even by mistake, it doesn’t get posted in the normal charts.


        • Tenter

          I was not yelling at him. ALL caps consider as yelling, but one word caps does not refer as yelling. I was emphasizing just to get his attention.


          • Mitch Salem

            Let’s be clear. We provide ratings for shows below the Top 150 as an accommodation to our readers, and we won’t respond to rudeness. As a rule, we also go by the listings provided by the networks. Based on Amaury’s assurance that this particular episode was mislabeled, we’ll provide the rating here, which was 0.30/1.3M (that’s for the full 5-5:30PM half-hour, we don’t have it broken down into 15 minute segments). But please be civil in the future.


          • Amaury

            Thank you kindly, Mitch. This week is a week of premieres for Loud House Monday–Thursday at 5:00 PM. Not sure why Nickelodeon mislabeled it, but it’s not the first time.


          • ChrisM

            @Amaury – Were these promoted or a last minute rescheduling? I do not watch Nick on a normal basis, but the last promotion I ever saw was for the episode where the Loud’s father opens his restaurant. The Futon Critic has not listed new episodes either, which is rather unusual.


          • ChrisM

            I just went over to Futon Critic and they have today’s (3/6) episode now listed. It was not earlier, so they must have had someone inform them or they figured it out on their own. Still…


        • Amaury

          @ChrisM: The Futon Critic is typically better for a record of past stuff. Usually, however, they update their schedules for the month at the beginning of the month or at end of the last month. The four The Loud House premieres for this week were up on Zap2it on Friday.


          • Amaury

            At least for Nickelodeon. The Futon Critic has been having schedules for the next month for Disney Channel up a little earlier.


          • ChrisM

            Thank you. Futon Critic rarely plays catch-up that I’ve noticed with shows I watch. I still wonder, though, if Nick did some last minute, or fairly recent, rescheduling. They’ve done it before and could be why FC was not up to date.


          • Amaury

            I don’t think it was anything last-minute, as The Futon Critic did not anything of Nickelodeon’s March schedule up until yesterday, live-action or animation.


  2. AB

    Thanks again Mitch!


  3. Sam Aiello

    Busy Tonight hits the list for the first time in a handful of airings.


  4. Tenter

    Mitch I’m sorry if I’m rude. I don’t want to be the only one noticing this, now that others noticed I feel better.
    @ChrisM, it wasn’t the last minute scheduling, it was planned and promoted in advance. First promo I saw was last month after Cooked aired on Presidents’ Day. The promo said “in 2 weeks”
    Now thefutoncritic has completed as of late last night. That was all Nick premieres
