Nickelodeon's iCarly (Friday, July 30, 8 p.m. ET/PT) landed basic cable's top kid-targeted telecast for the month with "iGot a Hot Room," which averaged 9.1 million total viewers and also logged the number-one telecast for the month with kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14.

Nickelodeon's digital nets--Nick Jr., TeenNick and Nicktoons--each logged their best August performances ever with total viewers and their respective key demos.
