truTV continues to appeal to younger viewers, with last week marking the network's youngest-ever weekly primetime median age (40). Remarkably, truTV's audience was four years younger than the same week a year ago.

The fifth season premiere of hit series Hardcore Pawn delivered 1.9 million total viewers last Tuesday night. The premiere earned Top Five rankings on basic cable in its time period for adults 18-49 (1,142,000), men 18-49 (731,000) and men 18-34 (373,000). Hardcore Pawn was up in key adult and men demos compared to the season four premiere, including +10% with adults 18-49 and +30% with men 18-34.

Operation Repo secured Top Five rankings for adults 18-34 and men 18-34 last Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m. Operation Repo earned strong time-period growth compared to a year ago, including +43% with adults 18-49.

Last Friday's Wipeout brought significant growth to the 8-9 p.m. time period versus last year, including +16% with adults 18-49 and +70% with men 18-34.

TBS

TBS's late-night series CONAN averaged 728,000 viewers, 504,000 adults 18-49 and 290,000 adults 18-34 last week.

Conan O'Brien's visit to New York - which included stunts delivering Chinese food, making pizza, driving a pedicab and officiating at a wedding - was a huge hit online. TeamCoco.com traffic topped more than 2.5 million weekly page views, up 50% from the prior week and 181% compared to the prior month.
