NEW YORK - Oct. 19, 2010 - Nickelodeon's iCarly scored basic cable's top entertainment telecast for the week (10/11/10-10/17/10) with a new episode, "iDo" (Monday, Oct. 11, 8 p.m. ET/PT), which drew 6.7 million total viewers. iCarly, followed by Big Time Rush ("Big Time Girlfriends," Oct. 11, 8:30 p.m. ET/PT), also scored the top spot on broadcast and basic cable with all kid and tween demos for the week, helping Nick end the week as the number-one total day cable network with kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and total viewers.

iCarly "iDo" posted triple-digit gains and averaged a 13.5/2.9 million K6-11 (+187%), 12.9/2.7 million T9-14 (+291%) and 10.0/3.6 million K2-11 (+150%). The new episode also topped basic cable on Monday night. Big Time Rush "Big Time Girlfriends" ranked as the top entertainment telecast on cable in its 8:30 p.m. time period on Monday night, with 4.9 million total viewers.

Nickelodeon closed the week as the number-one total day cable net with K2-11 (3.3/1.2 million), K6-11 (2.9/635,000) and total viewers (2.1 million), fueled by solid performances by live-action hits iCarly and Big Time Rush; as well as animated fan favorites SpongeBob SquarePants, Planet Sheen and The Penguins of Madagascar - which ranks as the week's top three animated series with kids 2-11, respectively.

Additionally, Nick Jr.'s premiere of new live-action series Dino Dan (Sunday, Oct. 17, 7 p.m. ET) set a record for the net, as the most-watched debut with K2-5 (383,000) and total viewers (753,000) in its history.
