Nickelodeon's "Sam & Cat" Debuts at Number One, Net's Biggest Live-Action Launch in Three Years

New York - June 11, 2013 - Nickelodeon's brand-new live-action comedy, Sam & Cat, vaulted to the top in its debut week as TV's top-rated kids' show among total viewers for 6/3-9/2013. Nick's biggest live-action launch in three years, Sam & Cat also swept kid, tween and teen demos as number-one on Saturday, June 8, among K2-11, K6-11, Tweens 9-14 and Teens 12-17. Among its target K2-11 demo, the show raised last year's levels by triple digits and handily beat direct competition by high double digits.

Bowing Saturday, June 8, at 8 p.m. (ET), Sam & Cat earned a 6.1/2.0 MM among kids 2-11, up +103% over last year; and averaged 4.2MM total viewers, up +76%. The show also handily beat the next closest competitor (Disney Channel's Good Luck Charlie) by +58% in the time period.

For the week, Nickelodeon earned a 2.7/888,000 among kids 2-11 (up +8%) and averaged 1.7MM total viewers, extending its streak of year-over-year gains to 19 straight weeks.

In Sam & Cat, Nickelodeon's funny gals Jennette McCurdy (iCarly's Sam Puckett) and Ariana Grande (Victorious' Cat Valentine) are back as their respective iconic characters from iCarly and Victorious in this new spin-off comedy. Sam & Cat follows feisty Sam and flighty Cat as they become best friends and unlikely roommates who start a babysitting service. The series is created by award-winning executive producer Dan Schneider (iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, Zoey 101).
