The “I’m sorry” one is cutest…my sweetheart
this is painfully accurate.
I noticed that a lot of people of the LoK fandom think that Nick dropped the show for no good reason.
I present to you, the amount of viewers that each episode has gotten.
You don’t have to be a genius to know that 1.5 million viewers for the freaking season premiere is pretty bad, and it only gets worse.
Why are the ratings so bad? Was it the leaks? The marketing? I don’t know for sure, but when a show even as good as Legend of Korra is getting such low ratings, it can be viewed as a waste of space.
So really, Nickelodeon didn’t drop the show for no reason.
Ratings for Season 2 weren’t exactly stellar either. Nick could’ve dropped this show last season. Think about that.
My final point is that Nick had a recent for dropping the show. Yes, Legend of Korra is an amazing show, but the ratings speak louder than the quality, I guess.
I see your point, but see, this move Nickelodeon has done is still shitty. Book three has made the show get back on track. Books one and two, let’s be honest here, were not that interesting.
Yes, the creators have made interesting back stories which are related to Korra being the new avatar but I’m not even interested in watching them all over again. You know what I mean?
But book three… You can actually feel the huge amount of effort the creators have put into this one because of the momentum of every episode aired every week. And that’s what Nickelodeon should’ve focused on. It has gotten good reviews as well and the fans are alive and kicking, and more excited than the two previous seasons.
Nickelodeon has been supportive of ATLA, why can’t they do that to TLOK? They should’ve done more marketing with this one because it’s the best book of Korra yet! That’s what frustrates me. And now, the whole fandom is giving them shit because of this dick move they made. Even the panel at SDCC wasn’t satisfactory. The real questions were not even answered.
I see what you mean as well.
I suppose that the first two seasons cemented what Legend of Korra was to Nick. Basically, “The first two seasons were meh, what makes this one more special?” In addition, I think younger viewers (the network’s target audience is 8-16, last time I checked) don’t like this show as much as A:TLA, which was a bit more juvenile. LOK feels like it was made for older viewers and/or fans of TLA.
Can’t really give an opinion about the panel since I didn’t see it (it’s weird that the “real questions” weren’t addressed though.)
Overall, I think Nick needs to re-access what they’re dealing with.
