Launching into its fourth month of double-digit ratings and delivery growth among its key kids demos, Cartoon Network this week boasted kids’ total day and prime time performances continuing their upward trajectories across the board, according to Nielsen Media Research. Among its standouts, the network’s signature franchise programming—FRIDAYS (Friday, 7 p.m.-12 a.m.), TOONAMI (Saturday, 7-11 p.m.) and MIGUZI (Monday-Sunday, 5-7 p.m.)—all scored triple and double-digit gains among their respective target demos.
