Austin & Ally

Found on


Austin & Ally is an American teen sitcom that premiered on Disney Channel on December 2, 2011, and ended on January 10, 2016. The series was created by Kevin Kopelow & Heath Seifert, the writers and producers of the Disney Channel sitcoms Sonny with a Chance and Jonas.


Let me start out by asking a few questions regarding where this is placed. 1) Why is this higher than Lizzie McGuire, Even Stevens, Cory in the House and basically every other show on this list. I Don't quite understand how this show made the top 10 for best Disney Channel shows ever.

2) What was going on in the person's head who made this show? I don't not think that this show deserves to be this high in the list. I am not saying that you are not in titled to your own opinion I am just saying that I don't particularly like this show.

I am not actually bothered by many of the actors, hence the word "by many". There is really only one actor I hate on this show. Laura Morano. In my opinion I just don't really like her. I love Ross Lynch, and I am okay with Raini and Calum. Laura in my opinion can't sing. Her voice is like she is talking with just more breath behind her voice. She always makes the weirdest faces when she sings and smiles way to much and way to ...more

This is the worst Disney Channel shows list although Austin and Ally is high on the best Disney Channel shows list too for some reason. - Anonymousxcxc

Disgusting! I do not know where to start with this appalling show! If you where to watch this show, it's basically about teaching children that they can become overnight sensations when really, an adult has a slim chance of winning the lottery! I'm 11 but I always change the channel when that stupid theme song comes on. Ross lynch (Austin) is such a retard that he can't even stick to a natural hair colour. He is a delusional person who thinks he is a triple threat when he isn't even a one threat. My eyes and ears practically gush out litres of blood when that show comes on. It's Alvin and the Chipmunks all over again! His Teen Beach Movie role only proved him to be even worse at acting. -100,000,000,000,000 out of 10 for him! Laura Marano (Ally) is by far a disappointment to the show. Who eats their hair when they're nervous? Who can take that much pickles? I personally like pickles but I wouldn't be able to stand a basket full! She is over-protective about that stupid songbook which ...more - Likhsy7

Well, there really are people who chew their hair when they're nervous (some chew their nails). It's a mannerism (a bit weird though). Also, what's wrong with loving pickles so much that you want a basket full of it? You know how people say that Disney are only for kids and yet, adults and teenagers still watch it? Some people find it weird but some people don't. It's something called respecting what other people wants.

And oh my gosh, is it really a big deal that Trish is fat? Well, she REALLY is SOMETIMES inconsiderate but it's her flaw that Ally, Austin and Dez accepted. You know how your mom is sometimes annoying and nagging yet you still love her anyway? SORTA like that.

Dez is smart (in real life) yet he agreed to look stupid for the show because he wants to be a part of it. It's acting, sweetie.

"This also teaches children that it's funny to be violent and act stupid." This part is oozing of stupidity. If this is your point, then does that mean that people ...more

This show is dumb, dumb, dumb. The plot of each episode is like a car ran over the real script and they had to make a script at the last minute. Ally is a confidence-lacking freak. She can't do anything. Austin is a sucker who acts like he is more important to the world. He can't do anything. Trish is a fat and stupid bully who can't do anything right. Dez is kinda okay, except he is so stupid.

Here is why I hate the characters.

Ally-Lets start with her. She has no confidence. She is overprotective about a stupid book. She is a dork. She always embarrasses herself in public. She can't take a hint on everything. She doesn't give a single feeling to prove she is happy her mom came back. She is never in charge of her stupid store, so who keeps it open, a ghost? Lastly, she has a horrible life.

Austin-He thinks he is so awesome. He STEALS Ally's songs for no reason. He cares about his "career" too much. I wanna tear my ears off when I hear, "I'm Austin. ...more

I'm not really a fan of the show but you guys shouldn't be disrespecting them. I don't think you guys would appreciate people saying a lot of hate of you. You shouldn't be wasting your time writing hate it's rude and disrespectful. - ADawn12

You are just a stupid hater. People like you are the reason people get annoyed. You are is mean and I would be ashamed if I were you. If you hate the show so much, then don't watch it. If you only have mean things to say, keep them to YOURSELF. Why go on a website and say all this stuff, and watch episodes just to say how much you hate it. You are a terrible person who has to be ashamed

These fans need to realize that there will be tons of comments that have hate for this show or a show that they like. This a website for opinions. And also we are all haters and hypocrites about something no exceptions. And seriously people you guys are getting offended over fictional characters, really, they're fictional characters they're not real. Although this comment was slightly harsh some of these fans need to back off a bit. - Anonymousxcxc

This show is garbage. There's a complete lack of talent in all the characters.

Let's start on Ally.
1. ) She has no good actress qualities. I know that sounds rough, but...
2. ) She has no personality. She tries to stand for "good morals" the whole show, but has no real quality that's funny nor entertaining.
3. ) Not only does she not have good actress qualities, she's just plain out not a good actress. Anytime that she's not smiling her mouth off for no reason, she looks like she's staring off into space the whole time. She just doesn't know how to work chemistry with other actors. I sit there and I'm like "How do the other actors in the show not get awkward acting with her? Oh, wait, they do! " I'm sorry if I sound of offensive, but this girl gets paid good money for acting and she hardly deserves the name actress.

1. ) He has no real bad qualities (although I could think of plenty). He sings, he dances, he's ...more

The show consist for 4 main characters; Austin, Ally, Trish, and Dez. Although the show seemed to show some aspects of a good children's how, it went downhill. The beginning was good, showing that it takes time to conquer a big fear and that friends may help. But after that there was no foundation, nothing to keep it all together. The show should've ended with Ally losing her stage fright and getting ready to perform more. Also, the characters got somewhat worse.

Austin- He was bad from the start, really. Sure he show that he will do anything for his friends, but he may also be a really selfish person. He seems to be more concerned with his fame. He also seems to be full of himself; expecting that he is the best at everything. The love-drama between Austin and Ally seems to get boring.

Ally- A good spirited and good hearted character from the beginning. But as time went on she became very annoying. Constantly trying to be the good girl, but almost gag me sweet good. She ...more

I personally hate this show. I mostly hate it because my least favorite band ever, "R5", has a lot of their songs on here. But it also has no plot. Good Luck Charlie is the only good show on Disney, and now it's cancelled, to make room as they bring in more stuff, like Liv and Maddie (so dumb! )

Ally- Shy, awkward freak who is so bad in social situations it's a wonder that she even has friends. But really, her "friends" treat her like crap and she lets them because she's too afraid they won't like her if she tells them off. She can't write songs.

Austin- My least favorite character. He is so inconsiderate and narcissistic. He calls the others his "friends" but he is not a real friend because even when his friends lives are falling apart, his first concern is him losing his "hard-earned" fame. But he teaches that instead of trying hard and respecting everyone, you can brush other people's problems aside and only worry about ...more

Why would anyone come on this website just to say mean things. Being mean is not cool. You guys are just like online bullies. I would be ashamed if I was anyone being mean on websites. You guys are terrible and being honest this isn't my favorite show but I'm not going on like half you people on this website saying how terrible it is. Why waste your time saying that you hate it. Do you guys really have nothing better to do? If you guys hate the show so much, then don't watch it. The person who listed all the things at the very top of the website wasted their time, if you hate the show, the why watch so many episodes. You guys are just stupid

Now all of you listen up you have absolutely no right to call any one stupid if you don't like the website then get out this is criticism if you can't take it then get the hell out its not being mean it's bringing out the flaws of the show

To the second replier: 1. I'm not an idiot, 2. I don't watch shows and movies I don't like- I avoid them, and 3. I'm not a bully. - Anonymousxcxc

The latest episode is making fun of a Korean girl, and plus it just makes absolutely no sense. If Austin really was that famous and had his own tour, then how would he still be in school? Wouldn't he get mobbed every single day or have to sound autographs before Homeroom? Ross Lynch has somewhat talent, but I cannot stand Raini Rodriguez or Laura Marano on the show. Marano is the worst, pretending to act nerdy or dorky when it just makes her seem stupid and immature. Ally is unrealistic and fake. It makes me want to burn my eyes when I watch her. Trish hates Dez, and then they call each other best friends. What? And how can you get hired then fired all the time? Wouldn't the managers know who she is by now and just not hire her at all? Doesn't it get exhausting getting fired? It makes no common sense and is not funny at all. The only person I truly enjoy on the show is the actor who plays Dez because he actually has some comic relief in him, and can act at a decent level. His ...more

They are all great actors, the world doesn't need to know how much you hate the show.

This is literally the most pointless show in Disney Channel history. The characters are stereotypical (shy girl, pretty boy, sassy brat, idiot friend. Austin thinks he's a god because he "sings" and "dances" when in reality he's an awkward virgin with a pancake fetish. Ally is supposed to be the love of his life but they can't be together for simply no reason. Ally somehow goes from being a shy girl to being on the same level with Austin in terms of success and neither of them lifts a pinkie to achieve their goals. Trish is utterly lazy but still manages to control everyone around her. If you get past her obnoxious attitude you realize her character has no real depth. Dez's only purpose is comic relief, despite the fact that the person who plays him is the only decent actor on the show. Ally is supposed to be this ingenious song writer but all of Austin's songs are about how cool he is. Austin and Ally's chemistry was random considering they liked different people during half of the ...more

Ok, I get it. You don't like the show, you hate it, it's horrible, blah blah blah. That doesn't you have to be so rude. It's a children's show, for Pete's sake! You people should stop criticizing. Okay, their acting may not be that all perfect, but you should not be focusing on other people' flaws. They are making the best of their acting careers, so stop talking bull (pardon my French) about other people. I was actually just watching an Austin and Ally episode, and liked it.

To the second to last replier: This is a website based on opinions everyone's going to comment. - Anonymousxcxc

All the new shows are terrible I like the old disney better I hope they bring the old shows back and take out the new ones I hate or don't like jessie austin and ally good luck charlie kinda sonny with a chance I guess and especially shake it up

You know laura Mariano is that dorky in real life. I look up to her because she isn't afraid to be herself. I can't believe this is above Jessie though

Guys, chill. Gosh, this is a COMMENT section, you're allowed to comment. LET HIM. Shut up no one asked you people. He's just expressing his feelings.

I'm pretty. Sure that no one wants to hear bad things that your saying about people who are way more famous than you

So let me get this straight, you made a show about a wannabe guy who thinks the world of himself and is always like 'hi I'm Austin Moon the biggest internet sensation' and an awkward, geeky girl who forever ass kisses this guy and all he does is steal her songs and their friends are some mentally retarded kid and a lazy, clueless girl who gets fired everyday..

Seriously Disney Channel is a bad influence to kids and you know what? I'm not a nineties kid but I grew up watching shows like That's So Raven, Suite life and Lizzie McGuire etc. Also Disney movies, back then shows had good morals in the end and an ACTUAL PLOT! Seriously this show makes me sick Austin acts as if rainbows come out of his ass and Ally just tries too hard to be cool, Dez is just plain stupid while Trish is just lazy and relies on others to help her WELL DONE DISNEY! WELL DONE! Is this what you want? For kids to be spoiled, catty and rude to adults, then kids are going to think it's ok to get fired from ...more - OfficialMegastarrr

I'm a teen actress on stage and in a few student films and this is what I think:

Laura Marano (Ally) can't play any instruments or write songs, so why did they pick her to portray someone who can play music and write songs? Also, she either can't act or she accepted THE MOST ANNOYING role on Disney Channel (possible) that makes her look awful. I personally don't think she can sing either and the dancing is obviously fake, which is fine because it's a show, but her awkward social skills just make me cringe.

Ross Lynch (Austin) is someone I can't form an opinion on. Some days I think he's bearable because his singing is alright in some songs but Disney doesn't help by giving him crap songs.

Raini Rodriguez is lovely. I don't like her character much, but I'm glad Disney Channel has finally decided to choose someone who isn't stick thin and typically "pretty". I don't like that they portray the only overweight character as the really lazy one who swaps jobs every ...more

Oh my gosh people let's just face it, we're all haters and hypocrites about something. And yeah I hate this show. If someone read my profile then they would see that I just stay away from the things I hate (well the top tens doesn't count because it's outside of that actual specific thing's environment). - Anonymousxcxc

To the second reply, why don't you stop hating on other people's opinions?! - 906389

Stop hating on Austin and Ally, If you don't like it then don't watch it!

Wow, I cannot believe these people. Austin & Ally is the best shows in history to me. Why are you guys hating? Is it because you couldn't get into Disney or what? Don't bash on them. Laura Marano is an amazing singer, talented actress, and she does know how to play instruments. Raini Rodriguez, she's amazing as always. I love the way she plays her character. I have known her since Paul Blart Mall Cop. And she's not fat, she's the perfect sizes and she's a role model to me. Calum Worthy is funny, he's talented and he has his own show called Just Kidding and it's funny. He's an amazing actor, singer and talented. Ross Lynch is also amazing, and he doesn't lip synch or anything. He has talents just like any other singer do. They Austin & Ally cast are my role models ever since. And I'll admit, at first when they showed a promo for season 1 I thought it was lame but then I started watching all the episodes throughout season 1 to season 3 and now they have a season 4. Austin & Ally has ...more - seevue27

I agree Austin and Ally has talented actors who play funny roles.

The show falls flat for me. The humor gets old and the characters basically recycle their old personalities and sayings over and over again. The show overplays on Trish being lazy and never being able to keep her job. It was a funny little joke at the beginning of the show but soon it became too much. Trish is also really rude to Dez. Dez is sorta funny but most of the time he is really annoying. Sometimes he'll do something that even the dumbest person would know not to do. And he does these things for the sake of the plot or just to put something "funny" in there and it always turns out unnatural. Austin is confusing mainly because he acts like an idiot a lot but at other times he's incredibly smart and it doesn't fit his character. Disney needed to choose one of the two because it was awkward and sometimes it didn't fit. Ally is the worst character. She always is so shy and she does the craziest things to avoid something that will embarrass her but what she does to avoid it is ...more

I hate this show so much! It is horrible! Austin to me, acts like dumb 5 year old in a teen boy's body! Ally talks with no emotion WHATSOEVER, and is one of the ugliest Disney actresses the company has EVER hired! All you hear yabbering from Austin's mouth is "Hi! I'm Austin Moon! (wow the writers must have been REALLY creative to come up with a name like that- NOT) the overnight internet sensation! " It's so annoying! The songs are crappy, Trish is way too fat to wear the tight outfits that she wears, and what a great role model for kids! Getting fired from a new job every day! GREAT JOB DISNEY! Why can't Disney be like what it was before! The princess movies, mickey mouse and friends, THE LION KING! It really is true, and I cried because of this one day- this Michael Eisner guy truly did ruin Disney... It's such a horrible and tragic reality...

Idiots, respect her opinion. This is a comment section, get over it!

My review on the Austin & Ally characters: As those who have read my comments probably already know that I hate this show right. Well it's still true and I guess you guys can infer that I don't like the stereotypes or the plot or the humor. I truly did like the first two episodes, but then I stopped watching it because it got stupid in the third episode. The rest of how I know more about this show is purely channel surfing and looking up stuff when I was bored. Now here's what I really think about the characters.

Austin: I didn't like him from the beginning. Ross Lynch is actually an okay singer, but I wouldn't really buy a song of his. Anyway I didn't like how selfish and dumb he was.

Ally: I kind of liked her in the beginning because in the first two episodes and the 1st-2nd season episode tidbits I channel surfed she was hardworking and I could relate to her shyness. Laura is also an okay singer. Then in other channel surfing days when it was in the third or fourth ...more - Anonymousxcxc

Disgrace. The characters are not funny. The show should is about two people, Austin and Ally, who sing and write songs. It is plain retarded. The whole point of the show is to basically show a talentless boy with a blonde wig sing. Ally writes the songs? They stink!

This show is awesome me and my friends love the show. I think it is hilarious. Trish is a little big but she plays her character in a good way. Austin is a really good singer and so is ally you guys are just jealous because you are not on the show so quit being mean

To you it is not funny but to other people it is nice and it is not just about two people

This show needs to be murdered. Austin- sort of cute ( But not Finn the Human cute) teen who can sing a song that his friend worked on for a week and suddenly all the girls of america love him. Real Music Stars- work hard their whole lives and write their own songs or have a professional write them, which takes way longer than a week. at first not everyone loves them but over time they work their way into the hearts of fAns everywhere. Also heres the plot of probably all the episodes: Something happens to either Austin or ally and they write a song about it. somewhere a problem comes up and in the last five minutes of the show somehow stuff goes back to normal. Also, they make the characters seem so stupid. I watched the one where Ally was gonna move to New York to go to college (if only! ). when see told the others she was moving they acted like she was dying and they would never see her again. Now, I know its hard for a friend to move ( one of my friends just moved from Jersey to ...more

If you think this show should be murdered then stop watching it. It's great, I get that this is just your opinion, but I disagree with your opinion!

This show is really bad. The only show on Disney that's good was Good Luck Charlie, but of course that had to end. I'm not saying Good Luck Chalie is better than Full House or Rosanne, but it has good lessons, sweet moments, and an actual plot. The writers at Austin and Ally didn't know what they're doing. I've watched a few episodes, but the same thing happened basically. Ally has an idea and everyone else agrees. That's so Raven actually had plot. That was my favorite Disney show. I'm just wondering why the writers thought this was a good idea. The characters on it aren't likeable or good role models. Kids don't know the old Disney, so they think this is a good show. Kids are learning horrible lessons from new Disney shows. It's cool to fail (Austin and Ally), it's okay for a friend to treat you like poop (Shake it Up), it's totally easy to go from dumb to a pro skateboard rider (Dog with a Blog), high school is easy and fun with no problems or stress (ANT farm), being super skinny ...more

To the people who don't like this show, the writers are PROFESSIONAL WRITERS. Austin and Ally have good morals in the show itself. I feel that you just judge the characters when you see the first trailer. But when you see the show more, you can see the characters grow and mature more. About the "overnight sensation" thing; How did Justin Bieber become famous? Oh yeah, by the Internet overnight. At least Austin apologized. The show is meant to be somewhat fictional and unrealistic. That's what Disney is known for. As you watch the show, you realize that Trish is not mean at all. And Ally overcomes her stage fright. You CAN watch the episode Beauties and Bullies. It's about the message against bullying. That teaches goods morals. Also, this show teaches about the love in different kinds of relationships (including friendships). Watch the show more. You could take my advice. And also the cast and crew just finished wrapping up their 4TH SEASON.

Yeah so what. Supernatural is on its 11th season and it has an actual plot - Anonymousxcxc

This show is just bad! If I'm being honest, I sort of enjoyed it in the beginning (like maybe the first 6 episodes) but then it just lost its spark. The show began as sort of adventures of a pop star, sort of like Hannah Montana, just no living a secret double life. Anyways I thought it was okay in the first few episodes cause it was actually doing what the show was originally set out to do. Then it just got bad by doing all this unrelateble pop star things. There were many episodes where Austin doesn't even feel like a pop star! This show just feels like a show about four normal friends doing normal things. If it continued with its spark and ended there, it would have been a good show. Some of the acting is bad, the singing and songs are just not that good (Ross and Raini are okay singers though), and the "jokes" are just terrible.

Now my problems with some of the characters:

Austin - He's not cool and just such an annoying character, and this is bad since ...more

Because I had younger siblings, our T.V. was always playing either Disney or Nick. So, it's no surprise that most of the time, I was forced to watch with them most of today's Disney shows. Out of all the unbearably mediocre shows Disney is airing today, I chose this.

Before I get into why I dislike the show, I just want to clarify that I actually kind of liked it when I watched the first few episodes. Yeah, they weren't funny, interesting, or likeable, but it was...bearable. It was kind of watchable because I got to see something Disney wasn't doing in its other shows at the time. They we're actually trying to form a chemistry between the characters; a chemistry where the characters took time knowing about each other, and surprisingly, it kind of worked. We had two main characters of the opposite genders being friends, forming a surprisingly strong bond...

Then Disney had to ruin it, of course, by pairing them up romantically. All that bonding, that chemistry between the ...more

This was actually a pretty okay show, and I liked it, with the unique plot, especially with Trish's new creative outfits and jobs. But then Disney decided to do that whole mess with Austin and Ally dating and it all went downhill from there! Do they SERIOUSLY have to always make the two main characters fall in love with one another?! It's not all about romance and stereotyping.

Another thing, Ally's stage fright, should have been something they resolved for the series finale instead of doing it when they did. Or maybe not at all. Some people could relate with stage fright! But Disney decided that the show must be perfect and to open up to more ideas, Ally suddenly must be normal. At least the stage fright made the character appear to be somewhat three dimensional, but now she's just another carbon copy.

And how come Austin's famous, but not THAT famous? He's famous enough to get on T.V., yet there isn't any paprazzi following him! That DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE!

Austin and Ally is a great show! What are you people talking about?! Ross is a better singer then you guys will ever be! I don't even think you know what your talking about. Jealousy is the word what YOU PEOPLE are! People, it's called ACTING! So Ally chews her hair when she's nervous, LOT'S OF PEOPLE DO THAT! And what if she brings a jar of pickles?! WELL GUESS WHAT?! I LIKE PICKLES TOO YOU HATERS! And the only reason she's over protective about her song book is because of the role she plays! Laura Marano plays the SHY GIRL! Not some really stuck out girl! Plus, why are you guys so rude? Just because you don't LIKE the show doesn't mean you have to blurt out a bunch of rude things to say! Why, I bet you can't even sing OR ACT! Hey, I know! You probably can't SUMMARIZE A WHOLE SCRIPT! You people chose a great show and made it seem bad! IF YOU GUYS THINK ANT FARM IS BETTER, IT'S NOT! Ant Farm is dumb, and the characters are too. Fletcher makes NO sense! Olive is NO BETTER! AND China! ...more - King_Panda

I agree Austin and Ally is a great show I don't know why all these people are stupid enough to say these things about them if you guys hate this show keep it to your self you don't need to go posting bad things about it on the internet how would you like it if you got all these hate comments?

Ross Lynch has no talent. Quit assuming that everyone is just jealous of people who can't sing or act if their lives and the lives of thousands of others depended on it.

Even though Beauties and Bullies had a good moral, one thing aggravated me the most. The acting, oh goodness the acting. They made fun of the profession, by having an unqualified gym coach cast the roles. Trish just slept and is praised as the best actress that auditioned. The guy that can't speak up is the narrator, and the peppy cheerleader who can't just lose her pep is the hateful witch. I viewed this episode a slap in the face to people who take their acting seriously. I also hated the fact that Trish did nothing she should be old enough and responsible enough to tell an adult. It's basically saying it's okay to be bullied and not tell anyone as long as your friends stand up for you and you swear them to secrecy. And Trish apparently grew a brain in the last hour to actually show up because she made a commitment.

It's pretty bad. Firstly, the show never gave its audience any reason that they should even care about the characters or what happens to them. Secondly, there's zero character development. Third, they play the "stupid" jokes way too much. Ie: making a character overly stupid to the point that it's not funny at all. And the plot is poorly thought through. Pretty much the same thing happens every episode, I think. There's such a lack of creativity and surprise twists that it makes me want to pound my T.V. screen in with the remote.
Enough said.
