Nickelodeon Closes the Week as Basic Cable's Number-One Total Day Network with Kids 2-11 and Total Viewers

NEW YORK-Aug. 17, 2010-Dora the Explorer marked her first decade on-air by drawing 3.3 million total viewers (+88%) to her Big Birthday Adventure (Sunday, Aug. 15, 8-9 p.m. ET/PT) special. Big Birthday Adventure also averaged an 8.1/1.1 million kids 2-5 (+305%), scoring the high-rated Dora primetime special in almost two years and the top spot in its time period with kids 2-5 and kids 2-11 on both broadcast and basic cable television. Dora the Explorer currently ranks as the number-one preschool program on all television.

Dora's Big Birthday Adventure was followed by the premiere of Dora the Girl Heard 'Round the World (9 p.m. ET/PT), a special 12-minute documentary short executive-produced by Academy Award(R)-nominated Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture), which scored 2.3 million total viewers (+42%). The documentary featured commentary from Dora and her friends; the show's creators; and Anderson Cooper, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Rosie Perez, Salma Hayek Pinault, Shakira, Soledad O'Brien, Sherri Shepherd, and more.

NickJr.com also scored its highest trafficked week in months due to special Dora anniversary-themed activities on the site, drawing 3.2 million unique visitors and 64 million page views in the week (8/9/10-8/15/10) leading up to the premiere of Big Birthday Adventure.
