A second new episode at 9:30 p.m. proved the #1 program of the week on all television among boys 9-14 and the #2 program of the week among boys 6-11. Together with Pok�mon 11: Giratina & The Sky Warrior, the programming led Cartoon Network to the #1 ranking on Friday night among all basic cable networks from 7-10 p.m. for average delivery of boys 2-11, boys 6-11 and boys 9-14.
