Debut of The Thundermans Posts Double-Digit Gains, Wins Time Period; Sam & Cat and The Haunted Hathaways Notch Winning Performances

SpongeBob SquarePants is Week's Overall Top Series with Kids; Paw Patrol is Number-one with All Preschool

NEW YORK - Nov. 5, 2013 - Nickelodeon marked its fifth straight week as the number-one basic cable net with Kids 2-11 (2.7/880K) and total viewers (1.6M), while also continuing its 9-month streak of year-over-year ratings gains.

The network's solid weekly ratings performance was driven by Nick's winning Saturday primetime live-action block, featuring the debut of The Thundermans (Saturday, Nov. 2 at 9 p.m., all times ET/PT). Thundermans won its time period with 2.6M total viewers, which represents strong double-digit gains with Kids 2-11 (4.9/1.6M, +75%) and Kids 6-11 (6.3/1.2M, +58%). A new episode of Sam & Cat (8 p.m.) drew 3.0M total viewers and also won its time period with Kids 2-11 (5.2/1.7M, +8%) and Kids 6-11 (6.4/1.3M). The Haunted Hathaways (8:30 p.m.) drew 2.4M total viewers and won its time period with K2-11 (4.4/1.4, +22%) and Kids 6-11 (5.4/1.1M, +8%).

Overall, SpongeBob SquarePants ranks as the top program with Kids 2-11 (5.9/1.9M) for the week, and Paw Patrol is the top preschool series for the third consecutive week on all TV, averaging a 6.9/877K with K2-5.

Nick at Nite's original Sunday night lineup continues to post gains: See Dad Run (Nov. 3 at 8p.m.) drew 1.4M total viewers and posted double-digit increases with Adults 18-49 (0.4/466K, +33%), Kids 2-11 (2.0/657K, +54%) and Kids 6-11 (2.0/402K, +25%). Instant Mom (8:30 p.m. ET) averaged 1.3M total viewers and posted +14% delivery gains with Adults 18-49 (0.4/449K), a +50% gain in rating among Women 18-49 (0.6/338K) and grew its ratings triple digits with Kids 2-11 (1.8/579K, +125%) and Kids 6-11 (1.9/383K, +111%).
