CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- The Tuesday, June 17 telecast of Cartoon Network's "Family Guy" was the most watched program in the history of the network among adults 18-34, reaching 1,056,000 viewers in the category. It also set a new record for best-ever delivery of adults 18-24: 650,000 viewers. Such performances helped vault the series into the top 10 in adults 18-34 among all ad-supported cable networks for the week of June 16-23.
