This year, the network was also No. 1 in nine other categories including Women 25-54, Moms with Kids <12, Comcast Cable Households, Time Warner Cable Households, Frequent Online TV Viewers, DVR Users, Frequent VOD Users, Netflix Streamers and Tablet Users.

ESPN remains a top cable network by all respondents. ESPN topped all cable competition in numerous categories to include Adults 18+, Adults 25-54, Men 18+, Men 18-34, Men 18-49 and Households with Income > $100K. This year ESPN also took the top spot among Hispanic American viewers and African American viewers.

Other Disney Media Networks holding top spots include ABC Family, ranking as the No. 1 cable channel with Women 18-34, and Disney Channel as the top kids network among Women 18+ and Adults 25-54.
