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.

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.
