Since its Aug. 19 premiere at 8:30 p.m., the series that features three adventurous teens conducting extreme experiments that lead to outrageous results, has ranked #1 in its timeslot on all television�broadcast and cable�among boys 6-11, according to Nielsen Media Research*.

Dude, What Would Happen also has continued to earn double and triple-digit ratings and delivery growth on Wednesday night among key kids and boys demos compared to the same time period in 2008. To date, average kids 9-14 ratings have increased by 75% and delivery by 85%. Boys 9-14 ratings have grown by 125% and delivery by 126%.

"Dude, What Would Happen has quickly become an audience favorite," said Rob Swartz, vice president original series at Cartoon Network. "We look forward to even more imaginative and hysterical experiments with our fearless 'dudes': CJ, Ali and Jackson."

The series asks such provoking questions as, "Dude, what would happen if you tied 375 helium-filled balloons to a sumo wrestler? Or, if you filled a camper with popcorn kernels and torched it with 3 flame-throwers?" Armed with an insatiable thirst for answers and with unlimited access to anything and everything, CJ Marigo, Ali Sepasyar and Jackson Rogow ask these kinds of questions each week. The sky's the limit for these three!

Dude, What Would Happen is produced by Dalaklis Media Enterprises (DME). Chuck Dalaklis is executive producer for the series.
