Continuing its remarkable winter performance, TBS has now topped the January charts as basic cable's #1 entertainment network with adults 18-34 and adults 18-49 in primetime for the month. TBS closed out the month on a high note, scoring its fifth consecutive week as basic cable's top entertainment network with adults 18-49.

The Big Bang Theory on TBS dominated the competition in January, ranking as basic cable's #1 comedy series. The Big Bang Theory scored an overall average 3 million viewers in January, including 875,000 adults 18-34 and 1.7 million adults 18-49.

TBS's Emmy(R)-nominated late-night series CONAN averaged 1 million viewers in January, according to the latest blend of Live + Same Day and Live + 7 deliveries, with 363,000 adults 18-34 and 638,000 adults 18-49.
