Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB) has seen its viewership drop of late, meaning it can charge less money for the same commercial spot. So, the companys solution has been simple: run more ads.
At Nickelodeon, for example, viewership dropped by just under 30%, while Comedy Central has also lost a smaller number of viewers. Overall, the company increased the amount of air time rose by 9% in 2012, on top of a 7% rise the year before, The Wall Street Journal reports

They will lose a lot more viewership due to Jason Biggs tweets. By the way they are now promoting Jason Biggs twitter account to kids.
I have no idea who Jason Biggs is.
Network hasn’t been worth watching since the 80s or early 90s.
I forbade my kids to watch Nickelodeon in 2008 when it started worshiping Obama. The cartoons were mediocre, but I’m not going to let them be brainwashed, too.
These people don’t think like the rest of us. Fire Biggs. He is a loser.
You could have stopped there. :-)
Viacom put Spongebob on Netflix, you can track the ratings plunge from there.
Even kids know they’d rather watch cartoons and not commercials.
Agree. Fire the lib idiot.
Nick, TV LAND, and a hand full of others all suffer from the same problem. There is a high demand for older shows. I can think of dozens I’d like to see again. However no one wants to see the same nightly line up for a year or in some cases even years on end. It would seem like they could draw in more views by changing their line up every few months. There are thousands of old shows out there and they are stuck on repeating about a dozen now take it or leave it. It doesn’t take a marketing degree to understand doing that is a set up for failure. They lost me as a viewer years ago because of it.
