Nickelodeon's iCarly (Friday, July 30, 8 p.m. ET/PT) landed basic cable's top kid-targeted telecast for the month with "iGot a Hot Room," which averaged 9.1 million total viewers and also logged the number-one telecast for the month with kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14. An episode of Victorious (Friday, August 27, 8 p.m. ET/PT) "Wi-Fi in the Sky," rounded out Nick's winning monthly performance, scoring the top spot on basic cable with total viewers (3.6 million) for the night and ranked as broadcast and basic cable's most-watched program with kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14. SpongeBob SquarePants also scored a win for Nick, ranking as August's top animated series on broadcast and basic cable with kids 2-11.

Nickelodeon's digital nets--Nick Jr., TeenNick and Nicktoons--each logged their best August performances ever with total viewers and their respective key demos.
