· The top kids' animated shows, with SpongeBob SquarePants (3.4/984K) and The Loud House (3.3/950K), which year to date are number one and number two, respectively with Kids 2-11.

· 2016's top-rated entertainment telecast with kids: an hour-long episode of the top-ranked, live-action hit Henry Danger (11/11/16), which averaged 8.2/2.3MM with Kids 2-11 and drew 4.2MM total viewers.

· In digital, over 1.5B streams were generated in 2016 across the Nick Jr. App and NickJr.com, while three of its preschool apps - PAW Patrol Pups Take Flight, Blaze and the Monster Machines Dinosaur Rescue, and TMNT Half Shell Heroes - reached number one in the App Store's Kids and Education categories.

· Albert, Nickelodeon's first original animated TV movie, delivered 3.1M total viewers in Live+7 and posted notable triple-digit year ago gains with Kids 2-11 (5.7/1.6M, +159%) and Kids 6-11 (6.3/1.1M, +152%).
