Adult Swim makes splash

28 February 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Adult Swim, which recently generated headlines over a promotional stunt involving its series Aqua Teen Hunger Force, broke basic cable viewership records this month in several demos.

Cartoon Network's late-night sister channel set basic cable monthly records in total-day delivery in adults 18-34 (460,000, up 28% compared with February 2006), adults 18-24 (280,000, up 32%), males 18-34 (283,000, up 25%) and males 18-24 (169,000, up 20%). The network also extended its streak as the No. 1 channel among males 18-24 to 23 consecutive months and ranked third among basic cable networks for total-day delivery in adults 18-49.

An Adult Swim spokesperson attributed the boost to marathons of acquired series Family Guy and Futurama. Aqua Teen saw only a slight increase after the promotional stunt and therefore wasn't likely a factor in this month's ratings jump.

It's also likely that Adult Swim got a boost from the fact that Nielsen Media Research is now including college students who live away from home in its ratings information. »
