Nickelodeon Finishes Week as Top Net with Kids, Total Viewers

iCarly Ranks as Basic Cable's Top Scripted Series Telecast; SpongeBob SquarePants is Top Animated Program on all TV

NEW YORK-March 22, 2011-Nickelodeon notched another weekly ratings win (3/14/11-3/20/11) as basic cable's number-one network with total viewers (2.2 million) and kids 2-11 (3.4/1.2 million) in total day. The net's win was fueled by performances from a brand-new episode of iCarly �iPity the Nevel� (Saturday, March 19, 8 p.m. ET/PT), which ranks as basic cable's top scripted series telecast for the week with total viewers (4.6 million); and SpongeBob SquarePants, which owned eight of the top 10 telecasts with kids 2-11 for the week.

"iPity the Nevel" was also Saturday night's number-one primetime telecast with kids and tweens on all TV and was the number-one entertainment telecast on basic cable with total viewers (4.6 million), averaging a 7.3/1.6 million K6-11 (+11%), 7.1/1.5 million T9-14 (+42%) and 6.2/2.2 million K2-11 (+19%). The half-hour episode also bested its nearest competitor by double-digits with kids 6-11 (+66%), tweens 9-14 (+115%) and kids 2-11 (+72%). �iPity the Nevel� follows the iCarly gang as they try to restore Nevel's reputation after a video of him yelling at a little girl surfaces on the internet and everyone turns against him.

Nick's weekly ratings performance also was highlighted by the premiere of �Dora's Ballet Adventure� (Monday, March 14, 7 p.m. ET/PT), which ranks as the week's top telecast with kids 2-5 (1.1 million) and averaged 3.1 million total viewers. The half-hour premiere, posted solid triple and double-digit increases over year ago with kids 2-5 (+216%) and total viewers (+37%), and outperformed its nearest competitor by double-digits with key demos. For the week Nickelodeon was home to the top four preschool telecasts (#1 Dora the Explorer, #2 Bubble Guppies, #3 Team Umizoomi, #4 Max & Ruby).
