    Its a bit embarrasing for Four to have its kids line up rate better than some of its primetime stuff although I will be honest they are great cartoons especially back when they were on TV2 about 11 years ago. Its also good to see Campbell Live rate a bit better, its a good alternative to the currently boring shortland street.
