Record-Setting "Kids' Choice Sports 2016" and "Henry Danger" Clinch Nickelodeon's 50th Straight Week at Number One

Kids' Choice Sports 2016 and Henry Danger Each Reached Ratings Peaks this Week and Claimed Basic Cable's Top Spots with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11

NEW YORK -- Just as it finishes its 50th straight week at number one with Kids 2-11, Nickelodeon notched back-to-back wins this weekend with record-setting, best-ever performances from its third annual Kids' Choice Sports awards and Henry Danger, the net's live-action hit which stands as the top-rated kids' show on all TV this year. Kids' Choice Sports 2016 and Henry Danger also blitzed this week's basic cable rankings by settling into the top two spots with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11, with Kids' Choice Sports 2016 a close second only to top-ranked Henry Danger.

Simulcast on Nickelodeon, Nicktoons and TeenNick, Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Sports 2016 (Sunday, July 17, 8-9:30, all times ET/PT) scored its highest K2-11 and K6-11 ratings to date, boasting double-digit increases among Kids 6-11 in particular. Kids' Choice Sports 2016 posted a 4.6/1.3MM among K2-11 (up +5% over last year's show) and a 6.1/1.1MM with K6-11 (up +11%). The show also scored 2.5 million total viewers across Nick's TV platforms. Additionally, the show also was the top TV pick with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11 among the week's other sports-themed content, besting by triple digits shows like the 2016 ESPY Awards, ESPN Home Run Derby, and FOX's All Star Game.

Voting on Nick.com and the Nick Apps increased by +40% over last year.

Hosted for the second straight year by Seattle Seahawks two-time Super Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson, Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Sports 2016 featured a roster of mega-sports star winners like Stephen Curry, LeBron James, Alex Morgan, Cam Newton, Ronda Rousey, Odell Beckham Jr., Rob Gronkowski, Leticia Bufoni, Usain Bolt, Simone Biles and Wilson himself. The only show where kids celebrate their favorite athletes and the year's most unforgettable sports moments, Kids' Choice Sports bestowed NBA All-Star Kobe Bryant with this year's Legend Award, and then doused him from head to toe in glistening gold slime.

Nickelodeon's Henry Danger advanced its current standing as TV's top show with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11 with another milestone - achieving its all-time highest ratings ever with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11 for its Sunday-night episode (July 17, 7:30 p.m.). Henry Danger over-indexed its current series average by double digits in all kid demos: Among K2-11, it averaged a 5.0/1.5MM, up +50%; a 6.7/1.2MM with K6-11, up +56%; and it drew 2.6 million total viewers, up +46%.

For July 11-17, 2016, which marks Nickelodeon's 50th straight week at number one, Nick was again the number-one network with K2-11 (2.4/696K; up +20%) and K2-5 (2.7/301K; up +23%), while tying for first with K6-11 (2.2/395K; up 22%)--its strongest weekly showing with this demo since the beginning of this year. The week's top kids' show also all belong to Nick: 9 of the top 10 with Kids 2-11; 7 of the top 10 with Kids 6-11 and 6 out of top 10 with Kids 2-5.
