Climbing ahead in ratings and delivery for the fourth month in a row, Cartoon Network set new January ratings and delivery records across every kids demo it targets, according to Nielsen Media Research. Credit for Cartoon Network�s powerful double-digit growth across the board can be attributed to its signature programming franchises: FRIDAYS (7 p.m.-12 a.m.), an evening-long line-up of all-original series for the entire family; TOONAMI (Saturday, 7-11 p.m.), a Saturday night presentation of high action-adventure programming for tweens 9-14; and MIGUZI (Monday-Friday, 5-7 p.m.), the weekday afternoon branded block of action programming for boys and girls 6-11.
