Nick Jr. and Nicktoons Tally Their Biggest October Audiences Ever

NEW YORK-Nov. 2, 2010-Nickelodeon closes October as basic cable's number-one total day network with kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and total viewers and posted its most-watched October ever with viewers P2+. According to Nielsen Media Research (9/27/10-10/31/10), Nickelodeon averaged 2.1 million total viewers, and a 3.2/1.1 million kids 2-11 and 2.8/608,000 with kids 6-11 for the month.

Nickelodeon's monthly win was fueled by iCarly ("iDo" Monday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m. ET/PT), which drew 7.6 million total viewers and is basic cable's top telecast with kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14 for the month, followed by Big Time Rush ("Big Time Girlfriends," Monday, Oct. 11, at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT), which averaged 5.3 million total viewers and scored the number-two telecast with kids and tweens. The premiere of Boy Who Cried Werewolf (Saturday, Oct. 23, 2010, 8 p.m. ET/PT), starring Victoria Justice in her first-ever headlining TV movie role and Brooke Shields, rounded out Nick's monthly performance by scoring 5.8 million total viewers and topping broadcast and basic cable for the week (10/18/10-10/24/10) with kids and tweens.
