BEN 10: RACE AGAINST TIME Scores as Cartoon Network's Most-Watched Telecast in Network History and #1 Show of the Day Among Boys

Live-Action Superhero Beats All Cartoon Network Programming Among Kids 6-11, Kids 2-11 Since January 2002

Cartoon Network Also Posts Its Most-Watched Total Day Ever with Kids 6-11, Kids 2-11

Young Ben Tennyson proved his supernatural delivery and ratings strength last Wednesday night when Cartoon Network premiered the original live-action movie special BEN 10: RACE AGAINST TIME (8:00 p.m., ET/PT), setting all-new records as the most-watched telecast in Cartoon Network history, according to preliminary data from Nielsen Media Research. The 90-minute live-action film delivered 3,987,000 viewers age 2+, out-performing the network's 2002 presentation of Dragon Ball Z, which previously held the #1 ranking. This outstanding performance propelled BEN 10: RACE AGAINST TIME to the #1 telecast of the day on all television�among both cable and broadcast�with boys 6-11 and boys 2-11. Moreover, Cartoon Network posted its most-watched day ever in total day delivery with kids 6-11 (785,000), kids 2-11 (1,101,000), boys 6-11 (615,000) and boys 2-11 (840,000).

BEN 10: RACE AGAINST TIME also scored as the most-watched Cartoon Network telecast in more than five years among kids 6-11 (1,466,000) and kids 2-11 (2,084,000), narrowly missing a November 2001 telecast of Dragon Ball Z and a January 2002 telecast of Scooby-Doo and the Cyberchase, respectively.

Additionally, BEN 10: RACE AGAINST TIME set a new record as Cartoon Network's most-watched telecast ever among boys 2-11 (1,621,000). The made-for-TV film also tied Cartoon Network's current record as the most-watched telecast among boys 6-11 (1,210,000), which equaled a 2001 telecast of Dragon Ball Z. Online at CartoonNetwork.com, last week's Cartoon Network Video sneak peek of BEN 10: RACE AGAINST TIME garnered the #1 most-played video spot with nearly 666,000 plays. Also, the Ben 10: Race Against Time �Savage Pursuit� online game secured 14.8 million game plays since its Oct. 15 launch.

Highlights of BEN 10: RACE AGAINST TIME's premiere performance vs. the same time period last year include the following:
