Cartoon Network Offers Thanks for November Prime and Total Day Delivery Gains

December 03, 2008

Monthly Performance Grows Between 4% to 15% Among Kids 6-11, Kids 2-11 and Tweens 9-14

Thursday Night Comedy Franchise Grows Between 46% to 91%; Friday Night's Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Improves Targeted Kid Delivery Between 63% to 101%

Cartoon Network had much to be thankful for in November '08 as monthly delivery results across all targeted kid demos advanced by significant gains compared to the network's November '07 performance, according to preliminary data from Nielsen Media Research. Prime time delivery showed the largest increases, rising 14% among kids 2-11, 15% among kids 6-11 and 5% among tweens 9-14. Total day delivery also grew compared to the same 2007 time period, up 6% with kids 2-11, 12% with kids 6-11 and 4% with tweens 9-14.

Standouts among Cartoon Network prime time programming included the Thursday night comedy franchise Har Har Tharsdays (7-10 p.m.), which aired for the first four of the five-week November rating period. Across November '08 compared to November '07, the block earned 46% delivery growth among kids 2-11, 68% growth among kids 6-11 and 91% growth among tweens 9-14. The original animated series Chowder (8 p.m.) posted strong double and triple-digit growth over the prior year, charting 73% growth among kids 2-11, 104% growth among kids 6-11 and 143% growth among tweens 9-14. The anchor of the comedy franchise, Total Drama Island (9 p.m.) scored the largest growth overall, posting 101% gains among kids 2-11, 128% gains among kids 6-11 and 168% gains among tweens 9-14.

On Friday night, exclusive action-driven programming from 8-11 p.m. propelled more modest growth among kids 2-11, 6-11 and 9-14. Soaring into the stratosphere, however, was the remarkable performance of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (9 p.m.), which earned double and triple-digit growth among its target audience. Compared to the same Nov. '07 time period, kids 2-11 delivery increased by 63%, kids 6-11 by 80% and tweens 9-14 by 101%. Similarly, the Cartoon Network original series Ben 10: Alien Force (9:30 p.m.) also provided significant ammunition to Friday night, earning 36% delivery increases among kids 2-11, 46% increases among kids 6-11 and 48% increases among tweens 9-14.
