{Sun, Dec 1351, '09}   Disney Vs. Nickelodeon

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while… THAT, and I don’t feel like doing my homework now, so…

I feel so targeted. Nickelodeon and Disney Channel are going at it, trying to catch my attention. Maybe you noticed. Maybe you never realized it and you are their pawn.

The most major thing I can point out is the internet. The two tv channels are targeting internet-users (YouTubers). Take Lucas Cruikshank, for example. He first appeared on iCarly in the episode, “iMeet Fred.” Later, he guest starred on Hannah Montana in the episode, “Come Fail Away.” Naturally, the television stations are trying to get Fred fans to become their fans. Nickelodeon also featured Care Bears on Fire in “True Concert,” an episode of “True Jackson, VP.” (Yes, Justin Beiber appeared in that same episode)

There are also some minor details I noticed. Disney has a show called “The Suite Life on Deck,” about a group of kids attending high school on a boat traveling around the world. Nickelodeon borrowed this idea for school on a boat on iCarly in the episode, “iReunite With Missy.”

Trying to be subtle doesn’t work. Seriously. I see through this act every time I turn on the tv. Why I’m even watching these shows, I have no idea. There’s a lot more examples I could use, but these are the most obvious. And I’m bored of looking these things up.

Internet users, beware: You’re being used by television.
