With coverage of the National League Championship Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers leading the way, TBS ranked as basic cable's #1 network in primetime last week. TBS came in first with viewers (3.9 million) and adults 25-54 (1.7 million) and scored a close second place with adults 18-34 (722,000) and adults 18-49 (1.5 million).

Overall, TBS's exclusive coverage of the NLCS averaged more than 4.6 million viewers, with Sunday's Game 6 (5.9 million viewers) ranking as the top game in TBS's 2011 MLB Postseason coverage and the third most-watched NLCS game in cable history (behind Games 1 and 5 of the 2009 Phillies/Dodgers match-up).

Adult Swim

Adult Swim's premiere episode of FAMILY GUY (Monday, 11 p.m.) scored solid delivery gains across all young adult and young male demos vs. the same time period last year: adults 18-34 (1,388,000) grew by 15%, adults 18-49 (1,862,000) grew by 11%, men 18-34 (803,000) grew by 19% and men 18-49 (1,055,000) grew by 18%.

Adult Swim programming - including FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD and ROBOT CHICKEN - accounted for 21 of the top 50 telecasts for the week on basic cable among adults 18-34, and 26 of the top 50 among men 18-34, both more than any other network.

Additionally, JOHNNY TEST (7 p.m.), and THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL (7:30 p.m.) ranked #1 in their respective time periods among all boy demos.

Cartoon Network's Tuesday night also posted significant delivery gains across all target demos: kids 6-11 delivery (445,000) grew by 9%, kids 2-11 (729,000) by 26%, kids 9-14 (371,000) by 51%, boys 6-11 (339,000) by 14%, boys 2-11 (514,000) by 29% and boys 9-14 (285,000) by 66%.

truTV

truTV's hit original series Lizard Lick Towing (1.4 million viewers Monday at 10 p.m.), Hardcore Pawn (1.5 million viewers Tuesday at 9 p.m.), Operation Repo (1.5 million viewers Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.) and Bear Swamp Recovery (1.2 million viewers Wednesday at 10 p.m.) each delivered double-digit growth for their respective timeslots with key adult and male demos last week.

Acquired hit Wipeout continues to deliver strong numbers for truTV on Friday nights.
