Welcome to the first official Community Opinion post. As you’ve probably already noticed, I have not been posting relevant news and opinions on this blog as frequently I as I have done in the past. Part of the reason behind this is that news and opinions regarding Book 2 are starting to go dry.
Coming up with general speculation about Book 2 is fairly easy, but coming up with speculation that is good enough to share with such a great community is very difficult. Every single one of you deserve the best, so I have no intentions of feeding you implausible material that doesn’t represent my best work.
That being said, in order to continue to post plausible material that keeps the community entertained, I’ll need your help. In “Community Opinion” posts, I will start a topic, and then it will be up to you (the Community) to take a position on the topic and talk about it in the comment section below. Hopefully if everyone participates, it’ll create a community discussion board for others to read and, hopefully, join in as well.
I will still posts opinions and news as much as possible, but in order to get through some dry spots, I will turn to Community Opinion posts.
Now for the topic:

As the title says, this article is merely a prediction piece. This is simply how I would perceive the Nickelodeon Network to act when it comes to strategically airing The Legend of Korra. None of these assumptions are necessarily confirmed.
Update: Possible Legend of Korra Book 2 release date found.
In case you are unaware, Networks base their Television Schedules on one thing: money. They research trends and data to find the best shows for specific times of the year. The Legend of Korra is a special show for Nickelodeon because it’s one of the Network’s biggest series’, and thus, their biggest source of profit. When The Legend of Korra airs, Nickelodeon has a massive spike in viewers, many of which are not necessarily avid Nick fans. And because of this, Nickelodeon’s ratings as a whole sky rocket causing an influx of potential advertisers who are willing to pay a lot of money to have their commercial aired.
That’s why Nickelodeon ordered 2 more Books of The Legend of Korra, they know how valuable the series is to the Network. And now that DirecTV has dropped the Network (causing a 20% dip in ratings), Nickelodeon will need to ensure that their highest rated series, The Legend of Korra, is aired strategically to boost the Network’s ratings to the highest degree.
That being said, the only way to efficiently predict when Book 2 of The Legend of Korra will air is to research and find the best times for Nickelodeon to have a massive influx in viewers as a whole. Once we find the appropriate time slot, we find a potential air date.
