The record-setting iCarly �iSaved Your Life� (Jan. 18, 8 p.m. ET/PT) and Big Time Rush premiere episode (Jan. 18, 8:30 p.m. ET/PT) scored basic cable's top two entertainment telecasts among total viewers for the month, and drew the top two kid 2-11, kid 6-11 and tween telecasts on both broadcast and basic cable in January.

For the second time this past month, the dynamic duo of iCarly and Big Time Rush delivered winning episodes, outperforming programming with total viewers on basic cable. Most recently, a brand-new iCarly, �iWas a Pageant Girl� (Jan. 29, 8-8:30 p.m. ET/PT), scored basic cable's number-one telecast overall with total viewers (5.2 million), and ranked as kids 6-11 (9.7/2.1 million), tweens 9-14 (8.6/1.9 million) and kids 2-11 (7.6/2.7 million) top telecast.

Among animated programs in January, SpongeBob SquarePants was the number-one series on television with kids and tweens, and on basic cable with total viewers, placing five out of the top 10 telecasts on all TV with K2-11 for the month. SpongeBob SquarePants has been the number-one animated show among K2-11 for the past seven consecutive years. The Penguins of Madagascar ranked second only to SpongeBob as TV's top animated show among kids 2-11 and 6-11, and with total viewers on basic cable in January.

Additionally, Nickelodeon's 24-hour preschool network, Nick Jr. boasted its highest-rated and most-watched month ever in January with kids 2-5 (3.0/310,000, +20%) and total viewers (586,000, +21%), while Nick at Nite finished the month as the top basic cable network among Women 18-49 (0.7/416,000).
