Outperforming its record-setting premiere on Adult Swim last week, the second episode of The Boondocks (Sunday, Nov. 13, 11 p.m. ET/PT), entitled �The Trial of R.

The provocative new show from comic artist and series creator Aaron McGruder ranked #12 on the list of ad-supported basic cable�s top 50 shows of the week among adults 18-34 and helped drive the late-night service to a 33-week winning streak for total day delivery of adults 18-24 and men 18-24.

Kelly,� which pitted brothers Huey and Riley on opposing sides of the hot-button �underage peeing� issue when R&B star R. Kelly comes to town.
