Yikes, seems like CN is jumping on the bandwagon. Anyway, I'm content if TTM can atleast hit 2M.

Lol, honestly it was smart that Disney and CN countered Thundermans with super hero programs. If Thundermans scores at least 2M, I'll be fine with that. Some kids might have tuned into Nick thinking SaC was on and stood around to watch TTM..who knows?
I agree 100% with Rocko. Nick should use this time to think how they'll carry out their live action programs both promotional wise, and scheduling wise. CN was the #1 network with K2-11 last Saturday night. This will definitely encourage CN to start countering Nick more on Saturday nights.
I hope Nick starts the second half of SaC with that 1 hour special. I have a feeling they are, though. Can't see them airing that special during the middle of the season, or towards the end.

CN doesn't have the ability to pull a 2.9M regularly for their movies Saturday night or not. Even airings of Shrek, Smurfs, Cloudy, Percy Jackson, etc. score under 2.0M. I think their win had to do more with the holiday weekend more than anything.
On Zap2It, it has untitled episodes for SaC, THH and TTM for Saturday, Jan. 4. Schedule could change, but whenever this 1-hour special airs, it'll push back the rest of the block a half hour. Not sure if Nick would opt to air the special on its own as a "movie" event, but it would be best to have THH and TTM follow the special for a ratings boost. I say all this with the understanding that good 'old Disney will probably counter the special hard.

Cat In the Hat was a premiere unlike those movies you mentioned.
Yes, they definitely will, as they appear to be doing that about every Saturday now. Disney also has a big JanNEWary event, so there will be lots of new stuff for them this January.
