    This show is definitely an indicator that Nick really does want to expand on the Saturday morning block, and I am actually glad they really do want to make something out of Saturday mornings.

    Honestly this looks very bad and Gwen's Harajuku shtick is lowkey racist. This has a potenial of being a bigger scandal than Oggy was.

    It's show that's not SpongeBob, Alvin or the Loud House. Of course it's going to fail.

    This show reminds me of the failed toyline from Spin Master, Kawaii Crush.

    On the other hand, if Nickelodeon really is trying to turn themselves around (as they're--admittedly--implied to be doing), then maybe, just maybe, this show might be given a fair chance.

    Maybe.

    EDIT: I just looked it up on Google, and I'm not really sure about the implied running gag of the girls not getting to complete a concert. If this is all the show is going to be, then I'm just not sure. Also, this appears to be a third party production as well. If this show does end up failing, it might only--repeat: ONLY be because it may just be a way to promote Gwen Stefani's music career ("Love, Angel, Music, Baby" is the name of her debut solo album; they are also the names of the "Harajuku Girls", which are her backup dancers). Still, we'll see how the show turns out. On a personal note, I kind of hope she doesn't use too much Gratuitous Japanese in the show (I think she likes to use the word "kawaii" ["cute"] a lot). I mean, depending on how the show turns out, she could end up looking like she doesn't really know what she's talking about, resulting in people mocking her for it. I myself would never wish that on anybody, but I'm just saying. I really do hope the show turns out alright. I really do.

    Why hasn't anybody mentioned Saturday at 8:30 a.m is the current time slot for Miraculous Ladybug? Miraculous will not be finished with its season 1 run by that point, if only one episode continues to premiere each week.

    I am highly skeptical Nickelodeon is going to expand the Saturday morning block, when outside of that 8:00 a.m. hour block, the only show they have been airing on Saturday mornings recently is Spongebob. In fact, if anything, I feel either Regal Academy or Miraculous Ladybug will be pulled starting October 8, because I don't see Nickelodeon giving up an additional Saturday morning time slot for a third party show. I'm leaning more heavily towards Regal Academy being pulled, at least for a few weeks, because it does not have a popular music video online like Miraculous, and Miraculous only should have 3 episodes left by that point, even if it has to move again to 8:00 a.m. to air them.

    Maybe Miraculous Ladybug will move to a different timeslot. Or, the remaining Season 1 episodes + Season 2 will be acquired by Disney Channel.

    If it ever does get acquired by Disney I would imagine still the same treatment where it airs only in the satellite exclusive channel Disney XD.

    Have you seen Disney Channel's schedule lately? They're still airing cartoons. And I don't think Ladybug would fit on Disney XD.

    I think Nick are trying to establish a programming block featuring strong female protagonists for girls. Mysticons is slated to debut on Nick during Fall 2017, and would fit quite well in this block.

    Haven't we already established that celebrities and cartoons don't mix? How did they go from Harvery Beaks and the Loud House to this? The full episode is on Nick, but the animation quality is something that the Hub would release. Nickelodeon rejected the Modifyers because it had a female lead, but now they put this trash? How about you request to the creator to acquire the Modifyers? I just don't get this man. I showed a few friends the first episode and they all agreed it was bad.
