Nick Owns Year's Top Shows Across Each Kid Demo: Henry Danger with K2-11 and K6-11, and Blaze and the Monster Machines with K2-5

NEW YORK - Dec. 28, 2016 - Nickelodeon finished 2016 as the number-one kids' network for the year and as basic cable's top entertainment network with total viewers (1.2M) in total day. According to Nielsen Media Research for 12/28/15-12/25/16, Nickelodeon is number one with K2-11, averaging a 2.1/623K, on par with last year, while +31% ahead of Disney Channel (1.6/468K - down -20% vs. year ago) and +75% ahead of Cartoon Network (1.2/368K - down -20% vs. year ago). Nickelodeon also is basic cable's top entertainment network with total viewers for the total day, with its current average of 1.2 million Persons 2+ out-performing Disney Channel by +22% (1.0M, down -18% vs. year ago) and Cartoon Network by +46% (847K, down -16% vs. year ago).

· The top four shows among Kids 2-11 (#1 Henry Danger, #2 The Thundermans, #3 Game Shakers and #4 Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn);

· The top three series among Kids 6-11 (#1 Henry Danger, #2 The Thundermans and #3 Game Shakers);

· Six out of the top 10 preschool programs, including the number-one Blaze and the Monster Machines, followed by #3 PAW Patrol, #5 Bubble Guppies, #6 Rusty Rivets, #7 Team Umizoomi and #8 Shimmer and Shine.

· 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%).
