CN Real

When the show aired on CN real, the block edited each episode from 30 mins to 15 mins and also aired the first half of the first season in the 2009 and the For Out of Jimmy's Head, Cartoon Network ordered 20 episodes, which were filmed from May to September 2007 In airing the show, Cartoon Network split the series into two seasons The first season of the show premiered in September 2007 and lasted 13 episodes The channel later aired the remaining seven episodes as the second season, starting in March 2008, one week after the airing of episode 13, which was considered part of the first season The show's hiatus between seasons actually between episodes 12 and 13 coincided with the 2007 Writers Guild of America strike, which led many to believe that writing on the show had been interrupted In fact, writing and production for all episodes had been completed in September However, the strike did prevent the writers from being involved in editing and post-production, including the controversial decision to add a laugh track beginning with episode 8, "Skate Night" Following the strike, the series was not renewed

The show has received negative reviews and is considered as one of Cartoon Network's worst shows of all time The show has a 24 out of 10 rating on IMDB and a 30 out of 10 rating on TVcom Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times wrote: "Cast aside all that clutter, though, and this is really just another show about a seventh grader trying to fit in It’s also a show with a sly sense of humor when it’s not being self-consciously frentic", and praised Bil Dwyer for his comedic role Emily Ashby of Common Sense Media rated the show 3 out of 5 stars and wrote: "It's just fun fluff It is worth noting that the show is an improvement on the movie in terms of Jimmy's increased confidence and ability to fend off peer pressure, which is certainly a welcome change"

Despite the negative reviews from critics and audience, it had some accolades: the program's cast won a combined Young Artist Award in 2008 for "Best Young Ensemble Performance in a TV Series", then was nominated at the same ceremony for "Best Family Television Series", and finally Tinashe Kachingwe with Caden Michael Gray were nominated for "Best Performance in a TV Series - Supporting Young Actress" and "Best Performance in a TV Series - Recurring Young Actor", respectively
