Premiere Of "Rufus" Achieves PAWsome Ratings For Nickelodeon USA

The premiere of the brand-new Nickelodeon Original Movie "Rufus" on Nick USA on Monday 18th January 2016 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) at 7:00pm ET/PT was watched by 3,168,000 (0.58)!

Ever wondered what would happen if your Dog became a dude? Manny lives the tail in "Rufus"! In Nickelodeon's brand-new original television movie, Manny has moved to a new school, and is finding it hard to fit in. After wishing he had more friends, Manny finds a mysterious collar and puts it on his loyal dog, Rufus. Suddenly, Rufus is magically transformed into a real boy! Manny's not sure what to do, so he enrolls Rufus in school. Quickly, Manny learns that having a dog-turned-dude by your side is pretty awesome, but it's no walk in the park, either. When the other students notice Rufus's silly dog antics - chasing squirrels, eating without utensils, asking for belly rubs, and catching soccer balls and flying discs with his mouth - he immediately earns school-wide pup-ularity. Manny is jealous of his new best friend but eventually leans that a dog's loyalty to his owner always comes first. "Rufus" stars Jace Norman ("Henry Danger", "Splitting Adam") as Rufus, Haley Tju ("Bella and the Bulldogs") as Paige, and Davis Cleveland ("Shake It Up!") as Manny.
