[via press release from Turner]

TBS

TBS is on top for the third consecutive month, ranking once again as basic cable's #1 network in primetime delivery of adults 18-49, up a whopping 24% over last April. The network also took the top spot with adults 18-34 in primetime, the second month in a row it has achieved that ranking. For the year to date, TBS is #1 in both demos, unseating last year's Jan.-April leaders, MTV among adults 18-34 and USA among adults 18-49.

TBS's primetime success this year continues to be fueled by the extraordinary performance of The Big Bang Theory, which easily took first place as cable's #1 comedy series in April, with an average of 2.7 million viewers and 1.5 million adults 18-49. The show also 692,000 adults 18-34, making it cable's top sitcom with that key demo.

Last week, TBS's late-night series CONAN drew 1,034,000 viewers in Live + Same Day delivery last week, a gain of 2% over the prior week. The show boosted its delivery of key adult demos by wide margins, garnering 8% growth among adults 18-34 (361,000) and 14% growth among adults 18-49 (700,000). Tuesday night's episode, featuring The Big Bang Theory's Simon Helberg, was especially strong, climbing to 1.3 million viewers in Live + Same Day. In time-shifted viewing for the week of April 9, CONAN averaged a final tally of 1 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery, with 383,000 adults 18-34 and 645,000 adults 18-49.

For the entire month of April 2012, Adult Swim ranked as basic cable's #1 network for Total Day Delivery of young adult and young men demos - adults 18-34, 18-49 & 18-24, as well as men 18-34, 18-49 & 18-24. The network also ranked #3 for the month in Prime Time (behind TBS & ESPN) for delivery of targeted adults 18-34. Among its highlights, Adult Swim's average Total Day delivery among adults 18-34 (536,000) grew by 2% and adults 18-24 (306,000) by 9%.
