(Los Angeles - March 25, 2013) - On Friday night, viewers swam in schools to watch the season premiere of TANKED and check out Wayde King and Brett Raymer's sensational aquarium creations. The season opener, 'Pranks and Dranks,' reeled in 1.6M P2+ viewers and was up 53% compared to its 2012 levels. The episode surpassed its previous high of 1.2M P2+ viewers, making it the most-watched episode in series history.

'Pranks and Dranks', which aired Friday, March 22, at 9 PM (ET/PT) also ranks as the series' #1 episode based on delivery and scored double-digit gains among all other major demos, including HH (1M, +38%), P25-54 (833K, +66%), P18-49 (824K, +69%), W18-49 (443K, +79%), W25-54 (419K, +68%), M25-54 (414K, +63%) and M18-49 (381K, +57%).
