Additionally, Generator Rex ranked #1 in its timeslot on all TV among kids 2-11. Both new series also earned powerful triple-digit ratings and delivery gains vs. the same time period in 2009. These outstanding premiere performances have prompted the network to order 32 additional episodes of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and 20 new episodes of Generator Rex. Both series are produced at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank, CA.

Highlights of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Generator Rex original series' premieres compared to the same time period last year include the following:

· Ben 10: Ultimate Alien increased kids 6-11 ratings (3.8) by 280% and delivery (925,000) by 290%, kids 2-11 ratings (3.2) by 220% and delivery (1,304,000) by 219%, and kids 9-14 ratings (3.1) by 288% and delivery (756,000) by 272%.

Ben 10: Ultimate Alien follows 16-year-old Ben Tennyson as his secret identity has been revealed to the world and he's now an international mega-star super hero, loved by kids the world over but distrusted by many adults. Armed with a mysterious new Omnitrix, Ben is able to transform into hyper-evolved versions of his aliens and will see action in places he's never been. Generator Rex, from the creators of Ben 10, takes viewers on an adventure full of fun, action, wish fulfillment and teenage drama. Rex is a young super agent who, with his incredible ability to create mechanical weapons and vehicles from his own body, must balance his adrenaline-fueled adventures with the everyday ups and downs of being a teenager.

Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Generator Rex are created by Man of Action (Joe Casey, Joe Kelley, Duncan Rouleau, and Steven T. Seagle). Glen Murakami (Teen Titans) is the supervising producer of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien with Dwayne McDuffie as story editor. John Fang (Ben 10: Alien Force, The Batman) serves as supervising producer on Generator Rex.
