Cartoon Network's Monday night line-up of comedy animation (7-9 p.m.) continued to perform well across the second week of November 2011. Monday night ranked once again as the #1 destination on all television for boys 9-14. Adventure Time (8 p.m.) was the #1 telecast of the day among boys 9-14 (up 19% vs. the 2010 time period), and also ranked #1 in its time period among boys 6-11/9-14.

Green Lantern will premiere as a series in First Quarter 2012.

Cartoon Network's Saturday morning CRUSHZONE (6:30 - 11 a.m.) earned double-digit increases across all kids and boys demos, ranging between 11% and 44%.

truTV continues to score outstanding growth over last year. Last week, the network was up 7% in primetime in the key men 18-34 demographic, compared to the same week last year, while the network's primetime median age (42) was down three years.

Driving truTV's success last week were hit shows like Hardcore Pawn (Tuesday at 9 p.m.), Operation Repo (Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.), Wipeout (Friday at 8 p.m.) and Top 20 Most Shocking (Saturday at 8 p.m.), all of which delivered double- and triple-digit timeslot growth among key demos.
