New Nick and Disney Shows

I covered the current Nick and Disney shows but there is a new slew of them and many suck.

Disney's Ant Farm
A toothy girl goes to a school for intelligent and creative kids, she has her wacky friends and the blonde frenemy that is always trying to make her loose. Her talent is singing. It's so-so, I don't personally like it, but the lead is charming and the musical numbers aren't bad. But the friendemy is pretty stereotypical.

They saddled Debbie Ryan of Suite Life on Deck with a Suite Life of Zack & Cody clone as a babysitter to assorted multi-cultural kids. I don't even want to this mess. Kids told me they like it.

 Shake It Up
This is just horrible. The girls... one is charming and the other not so much, I will let you guess which one. The parents and other characters are pretty annoying and intelligible. It is about two dance show fans that end up working in said dance show.

Austin & Ally
Set in Miami Beach but it isn't filmed in Florida. I like it actually, it is pretty good. It is a bit slow moving but has good music. Three of the four characters have some characterizations, except for Austin's guy pal. Austin is  a stuck up web sensation who can't write songs and steals a song from a girl who works at her dad's music store. So Ally ends up writing his music and her best friend, who goes form job to job ends up being his manager.

Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures premiered on Nickelodeon on July 1, 2011 that seemed to disappear as soon as it appeared. Next up is How to Rock.
